Find, Build, Sustain Patient Volume: Medical Tourism Association® Free Webinar

Mar. 31, 2014 - PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Hospital administrators, doctors, dentists, wellness therapists and healthcare practitioners or facilitators jockeying for position in the highly competitive, yet lucrative medical tourism industry can learn how to generate patient and buyer leads -- and sustain them -- during an online webcast sponsored by the Medical Tourism Association®, Tuesday, April 1, 2014, 10 a.m. (EST). The educational webcast is free of charge.

“Relying on referrals alone will no longer establish a steady stream of clients and build your business operations,” said Renée-Marie Stephano, president of the Medical Tourism Association®. “Healthcare entities that want to distinguish themselves from their competitors need to acquire tools to not only market their operations, but improve processes and methods that drive down costs and elevate products and services.”

Increasing patient streams is the goal of virtually all healthcare providers and the competition for added volume is driving administrators, doctors, clinicians and related medical tourism facilitators to think beyond their expertise. Yet, few healthcare practitioners take the time to understand and evaluate the approaches they use to attract and then convert patients into long-term customers.

This webcast, “Receiving Patient and Buyer Leads by Joining the Medical Tourism Association®, will provide participants with the resources to not only access direct patient lead acquisitions through Medical Tourism Association® membership channels, but strategies designed to invigorate the healthcare consumer experience by elevating marketing effectiveness, identifying and targeting ideal audiences, increasing visibility, building brand reputation, tailoring business procedures and policies to meet unique and evolving needs, and attracting referrals that reimburse efficiently and boost revenue.
