Health IT Marketing Minutes
What makes marketing in the health IT space unique? Who are the movers and shakers? What’s working, what’s trending? Where can you learn more? This monthly roundup post will focus in on all things health IT when it comes to marketing.
On this episode of What’s My Tagline? I spoke with Dan Lavelle, Head of Marketing at DeliverHealth. Not all start ups are created equal. Some, like DeliverHealth, emerge through the process of spinoffs and acquisitions. DeliverHealth just celebrated its one year anniversary, and the software and service company already has more than 2,000 clients and 2,000 employees across the globe. Dan discusses the company’s journey and the impact of his marketing mantra over the past year, author Simon Sinek’s “start with why”.
Beginner’s Guide to Developing a Marketing Program – Dominick Sorrentino, Brand & Product Manager at Brafton (@Brafton) says, Spend a little time on the Brafton.com blog and you’re sure to find our experts talking at length about marketing plans, marketing strategies and even marketing frameworks. We think about marketing day in and day out. We chat about it in the break room. Some of us have even admitted to having dreams about it. Simply put, we’re big fans of marketing in all its forms. But in all our fanfare, we noticed we haven’t yet discussed one key element of this topic: the all-important marketing program. We’re here to rectify that.
Engaging Employees to Build a Better Culture – Colin Hung (@Colin_Hung) writes, The war for talent in Health IT has never been more intense. At the same time, companies are learning on the fly how to grow and scale with a hybrid or completely remote workforce. The key to surviving and thriving in this type of environment is the strength of a company’s culture. Redox has placed a big bet on culture – and it is already paying off.
The Value of a Client Conference – Ross Homer, Senior Vice President at Aria Marketing (@AriaMarketing) writes, We’ve dedicated a number of blog entries over the years to the PR value of industry conferences such as HIMSS, HLTH and ViVE. These shows provide a unique forum and opportunity for us to connect our clients with key members of the media to build relationships, exchange ideas and inspire content creation (in-person!). But, there is another kind of conference that provides just as much value for our thought leadership-driven public relations work, and those are client conferences; events that our clients host for their own users. Now, you may be thinking, client conference? Isn’t that just an opportunity for vendors to wine and dine their customers while trying to upsell them?
Stop boring your target audience: The 5 best B2B marketing tactics to test now – Melanie Hilliard, Account Director and Content Lead at Clarity Quest (@CQmarketing) says, I was originally planning to write up key takeaways from the HubSpot State of Content Marketing in 2022 for health tech and life sciences marketers. Turns out, I bored myself to tears just working on the outline—I can’t imagine how a reader might feel actually having to read it!

The good news is that you can start testing new tactics right now to see what resonates with your target audience before altering your long-term strategy. Ready to spice up your marketing? Here are five of the best B2B marketing tactics to try … right now.
How to get quoted in healthcare media: our PR experts spill the secrets – Amy Roberts, Vice Presidents of Communications & Client Services (@KNBComm) writes – Even the most introverted and ego-free people will agree — there’s nothing quite like seeing your name in print. Being quoted as an expert in your field is often a goosebump-inducing experience. It’s gratifying when your words are immortalized in the newspaper, in a magazine, or on TV. But the leap from expert to quoted expert can be a bit of a distance, especially in healthcare. To help cover what can sometimes be a vast expanse, we asked our media relations team to weigh in.

Urgent Care Marketing 101 – free, online marketing eBook from Experity (@ExperityHealth)
An urgent care clinic, like any business, is only profitable if patients continue to use its services over time. Unfortunately, many urgent care facilities have a restricted marketing budget, which can severely limit new business volume and community engagement. According to Andrew Ibbotson, Vice President of the National Research Corp. in Nebraska, “Urgent care traffic is driven more by online search results, geography, wait times, and availability than traditional healthcare delivery.” These added complications make identifying the most effective marketing strategies for your walk-in clinic even more essential to success.
