Strategic Healthcare Marketing 11 – 14 December 2011 • JW Marriott Hotel, Dubai, UAE Course Overview Healthcare in the Middle East is undergoing a dramatic transformation. More and more governments are turning from being healthcare providers into healthcare regulators, using mandatory insurance to open up the provision of public healthcare to any willing healthcare providing organisation. Never before has so much power and choice been placed in the hands of the individual citizen or resident to choose their hospital or clinic. Consequently, it has never been so vital to the success of healthcare organisations that they understand the needs of their customers and communicate with them effectively through achieving excellence in the discipline of healthcare marketing. The growing tendency of citizens and residents to go ‘shopping’ between hospitals, greater access to health information on the Internet, the increasing importance of international accreditation and the rise of medical tourism are all making marketing – long practiced in other industries – ever more vital for success in the highly competitive business of healthcare. In this new course from IIR, you will discover how to apply the tools and techniques of strategic marketing within healthcare. Today, every healthcare manager and clinician is being encouraged – if not forced – to become a marketer of some sort: developing marketing plans for their hospital or clinic, understanding the needs and preferences of customers and transforming that understanding into a better healthcare experience. Over four days – through a mixture of classroombased lectures, real life case studies and peer-to-peer collaboration – you will hear genuine thought leadership and develop practical solutions that will be essential if your healthcare organisation is to engage and keep the attention of prospective patients through the delivery of genuine customer value. Through this course you will: • Develop deep insights into the healthcare marketplace, the needs and wants of healthcare consumers and the behaviour of your competitors • Create a compelling strategic marketing plan for your healthcare organisation • Understand how to effectively segment and target your healthcare organisation’s marketplace • Position your healthcare organisation in the minds of your customers • Optimise the impact of your advertising and communications to deliver patient loyalty and commitment

Course Timings Registration will be at 07.30 on the first day of the course. Course sessions will start promptly at 08.00 each day and end at 14.30. There will be two short breaks for refreshments at appropriate times, and lunch will be served at the end of each day’s sessions.

Day One Value Exploration In Healthcare The healthcare market in the Middle East is characterised by massive investment in building and launching new facilities, extensive restructuring of the way healthcare organisations operate and major reform of the way healthcare is purchased and delivered. Competing in this environment requires an effective marketing strategy to deal with these forces of change. And an effective strategy requires an in-depth understanding of the marketplace. On Day One you will explore how to gain that understanding. • The healthcare marketing process • The dilemma of patients’needs versus patients’ wants • Marketing strategy in healthcare organisations • The changing healthcare marketplace • The marketing research process • Developing market and competitor insights

Day Two Value Creation In Healthcare A fundamental challenge for every healthcare organisation is deciding which customers are worthy of specific targeting or are of greater strategic importance. On Day Two you will explore the ways that healthcare organisations can make these decisions by learning techniques to understand buyer behaviour, analyse the competitive market, determine organisational strategy and develop a marketing plan. In particular, you will look in detail at how the tools of market segmentation can be effectively applied in healthcare. • Buyer behaviour in healthcare: patients versus insurers • Psychological and socio-cultural influences on purchasing decisions • Marketing strategy in healthcare: the visible value challenge • Analysing the competitive market and determining organisational strategy • Market segmentation in healthcare

Value Communication In Healthcare Significant money is invested in healthcare advertising every year. In 2005, more than US$ 25 billion was spent annually (Source: The Baltimore Sun, 2005). While much of this is spent on marketing directed at hospitals and clinics, the fastest growing segment of healthcare advertising is direct-to-consumer marketing. But is advertising the best way to communicate value to prospective patients and clients? Should healthcare providers be concentrating instead on building more intimate and long-term relationships with their customers, based on mutual trust, commitment and loyalty? On Day Four you will examine these key questions and conclude the course with a look at how healthcare organisations can measure the impact and effectiveness of the different marketing activities. • Developing healthcare advertising campaigns • Ethics in healthcare advertising • The sales function in healthcare • Customer relationship management and relationship marketing • Moving patients up the ‘loyalty ladder’ • Measuring and controlling healthcare marketing

Who Should Attend? This course will benefit anyone in healthcare involved in delivering value to patients, including: • Hospital marketing, communication, advertising and PR managers • Directors, executives and managers from healthcare organisations • Owner-managers of independent hospitals, clinics and practices and senior clinicians

Value Delivery In Healthcare In the business of healthcare, the focus of marketing is on selling products and services that meet patient needs – i.e. on delivering value. On Day Three you will examine how that value should be understood and delivered through the ‘marketing mix’ of product, price, place, promotion, people, processes and physical evidence: sometimes known at the 7 ‘P’s. • Managing the healthcare product • The challenge of pricing in healthcare • Distribution and channel leadership • Promotion, communication, social marketing and Web 2.0
