The Majority of Consumers Don’t Need a Hospital

Here at Geonetric we’re big fans of Chris Bevolo’s book Joe Public Doesn’t Care About Your Hospital. So I was excited when Ben reached out to Chris in his article Embracing Wellness Online featured in the July/August 2012 issue of Healthcare Strategy Alert! In the article, Ben and Chris explain how too often what hospitals market is sick care not healthcare – and they discuss how much of an opportunity there is for marketing wellness.

Ben goes on to discuss how to leverage the Web to build awareness for wellness programs and features case studies from a few of our clients, including: Owensboro Medical Health System, Owensboro, KY; Crozer-Keystone Health System’s Healthplex® Sports Club, Springfield, PA; Overlake Hospital Medical Center, Bellevue, WA; and Advocate Health Care, Oak Brook, IL.

From promoting fitness facilities to sponsoring 5Ks, these organizations are pros at using the Web, social media and even QR codes to connect with their communities. They’re establishing relationships with people that might not need a doctor or typical hospital services. And as an added benefit, they’re reinforcing their commitment to building healthier local communities.

Check out the article and learn how to leverage the Web and social media platforms to build awareness for your organization’s wellness initiatives.
