The Changing Landscape Impacting Medical Societies, Associations and Publishers

The field of healthcare grows more dynamic daily as the industry adjusts to new payer models and practitioners and patients have more choice in new treatments.

Providers must manage the confusion arising from shifting payment models associated with MACRA and new government mandates.

At the same time, providers must treat a patient population increasingly saddled with chronic disease and co-morbidities.

Exacerbating this complexity, patients must coordinate care and communication among multiple providers.

Practitioners face challenges and the need to stay up to date.

Patients and their families mine the web to better understand medical conditions, treatments and options and they take active roles in their own or family care.

All your stakeholders are demanding and impatient.

  • In today’s world, your current or prospect stakeholders interact in many ways with your organization and expect you to directly correlate products, services and content to problems they want to solve or to satisfy needs they have.
  • The wants, needs and problems your stakeholders are trying to solve require new approaches.
  • How your stakeholders behave, seek information, ask questions and what they expect of you are very different than what you once understood them to be.
