GROWTH OPTIMIZATION FOR PODCASTS

Podcasts seem to be taking over—more people than ever are tuning into their favorite podcasts. According to Nielson, the total U.S. podcast audience is growing at a compound average growth rate of 20 percent.

Many brands have picked up on this growth and have started their own podcasts to make a grab for podcast fans. Unfortunately, too many of these podcasts are low-quality productions that may damage the trust companies work so hard to build. But it doesn't have to be this way. Discover a simple strategy to create a podcast that turns your audience into customers who trust and love your brand.

LEVERAGING THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIPS

We can all agree- the business of healthcare is very complicated, fraught with orthodoxy and organizational value creation typically moves at glacial speed.

To short-circuit and speed up the opportunity to scale your business and thrive in the healthcare industry, an in-depth understanding, appreciation and commitment to creating mutually beneficial partnerships is paramount, especially during these uncertain times.

Recognized as a 2019 ‘Top 100 Global Healthcare Innovation Brand,’ Mike will share with you:

  • Why he is so bullish, passionate and committed to partnerships
  • The ‘ups and downs’ of creating strategic partnerships (and failing fast when needed)
  • Case studies to better understand the ingredients of a successful partnership
  • Opportunities to work TOGETHER to disrupt the healthcare industry and drive it forward

Mike Biselli, Vice President, Emerging Technology Partnerships, Olive & Partner/Owner, Catalyst


3:00 PM

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE

When COVID hit, two consultants pooled resources and quickly threw together a weekly webinar and forum focused on their specific customer bases, private practice pediatricians. By mid-April, the webinar would have 1800 attendees per night and the forum is still active with nearly 3500 members. Until this new bar was set, a national pediatric seminar with 100 attendees was considered a success!

As primary care physicians, pediatricians are remarkably good at reading people - so how did two "vendors" gain their trust and attract such a following? The recipe isn't a surprise, but the ingredients often elude many in the business.

Chip Hart, Director of Pediatric Solutions, PCC

In a marketing landscape where buyers require multiple interactions with your brand before considering a purchase, your social presence is a critical element of your marketing strategy. Often, though, it’s an untapped resource.

CHAIRPERSON’S OPENING REMARKS

11:00 AM

CRAFTING AN ROI-DRIVEN VALUE PROPOSITION

Every product has a buyer.  Every buyer is driven by a return on investment.  The return on the investment is driven by the "problem" your product solves, why your product is the best solution for to problem, and what it would cost the buyer not to use your solution. In this segment, we'll discuss how to articulate a concise value proposition that will resonate with the decision makers, decision influencers, and decision blockers involved in complex healthcare technology sales. We will also explore the importance of demonstrating the financial return on investment that your product provides. We will discuss how any startup at any stage can still craft a defensible ROI - with or without customer data.

Sanaz Cordes, MD, WWT

WHAT FLAVOR IS YOUR CHAMPION?

Selling to hospitals, payors and employers is a messy and lengthy process. In these complex sales we are dependent on finding the right champion to help us navigate the customer's organization and guide us through the sales process.

According to the Corporate Executive Board (part of Gartner), the ideal Champion does not exist. There are seven different personas of champion. Each one has different wants and needs. Each one needs to be engaged and managed differently.

And four out of seven of these champion personas can kill your chances of winning.

In my presentation you will learn:

  • Why now, more than ever, finding the right champion is critical
  • Why the ideal champion does not exist
  • The 7 Personas of Champions
  • Which 3 personas you want to work with and which 4 you want to avoid

SELLING TO HEALTH PLANS PANEL DISCUSSION

We all know the importance of digital front doors, patient engagement, care coordination, case management, remote patient monitoring, telemedicine, and interoperability, especially with the shift to value-based care. Health insurance companies have been late to the digital transformation party but as they see more and more of their jobs being to help care for patients rather than just managing their health risk premiums and coverage, insurers are looking to leapfrog their care delivery counterparts rather than just partnering.

This session will cover some of the most important digital health technologies that health insurance companies and their health plans are interested in and – more importantly – how you can get health plan executives to buy the technologies you’re building.

COMPLETION, NOT PERFECTION: A THOUGHT EXERCISE

The second you do anything, you risk screwing up. But doing something is almost always better than doing nothing. So how do you navigate the gray area between a blind leap into dangerous waters and analysis paralysis? How do you know that the potential reward of an executed campaign is greater than the risk? Many smarter people have contributed to this topic with things like the 80/20 rule, and the idea of "Rolling Perfection." I'm going to skip those and help you master a simple thought exercise that has seen me through countless successful launches, and landed me one happy marriage. Think it through, and then take the risk. Here's the secret: nobody does anything perfect, ever.

Levi Wiggins, President & CMO, Viral Healthcare Founders
