Your Website’s Role in Promoting Your Services Online

Where do patients look when they have a question about their health? How do patients learn about symptoms, diagnoses and treatments? Since the advent of the Internet, medical care and the ways in which patients discover new physicians and how to improve their health has shifted.

A recent survey tells us that 80% of Internet users look online for health information.  As patients increasingly flock to the Web for information concerning their general health, doctors have two options: do nothing and miss out on new patients, or leverage the resources available to educate and garner interest from patients who are already actively searching for ways to improve their health online.  Online patient education resources, blogging and pay per click advertising are three powerful ways to market your services to patients on the Internet.
Web-based Patient Education
Your website can play a pivotal role in educating patients and introducing them to the services your practice offers.  With your website’s educational materials, such as a patient education library, available to patients 24/7, you can save yourself valuable time otherwise spent in repeated explanation about basic information. Well-informed patients are also generally more compliant with treatment protocol, which leads to improved successful outcomes and increased referrals to your practice. By providing patients with direct links to your website, you ensure that they are receiving accurate and relevant information, and can refer to it as frequently as necessary.
Blogging
Blogging is a great way to establish your own voice as a medical expert by authoring your own learning materials. Post office updates, reveal your personal achievements, promote new treatments and offer health tips to your blog once or twice a week to keep readers engaged, informed and coming back for more on a regular basis. Unlike the educational library on your site, your blog should showcase the humanistic side of your practice, while also encouraging conversation with your patients. […]

The Spring Summit in Denver – the Ultimate How-to Guide to Success in Private Medicine

On May 18-19, join us in Denver and experience the most robust how-to curriculum ever assembled for private physicians. You asked for it, and the AAPP is delivering a 3-track curriculum providing most everything you need to know about launching, growing, and expanding a thriving private medical practice.

In addition to our general sessions addressing such topics as:
The state of the private medical market place;
Legislative and regulatory updates;
The ethics of private medicine; and
The private physicians roadmap to state-of-the-art disease prevention…

We will offer 3 TRACKS OF TARGETED EDUCATION:

Track 1: Private Medicine 101 for people considering a transition to private medicine or just getting started. In this track, you will learn:

How to convert your practice;
The various business models to choose from;
Legal considerations with respect to separating from a group to form your new practice;
The do’s and don’ts of patient contracting;
How to finance your launch; and
A wealth of other valuable information for anyone interested in the fundamentals of private medicine.

Track 2: The Private Medical MBA. This track has been designed with the help of some of our most successful and tenured members to address the needs of private physician practices that have been up and running for more than two years. We have never attempted to offer a track like this, and have little doubt that our advanced practices will find it invaluable.

The room will be set up in round tables. Several of the lectures will be brief followed by round table discussion and synthesis of the collective wisdom of the audience. Topics to be explored include:

Adding physicians to the practice: contracting, cultural, and compensation considerations;
When and why to add a business manager (CEO or COO) and the differences between a business manager and a practice manager; […]
