SIM Partners to Host Webinar, “Winning in Patient Engagement”

By David Deal


Location marketing technology leader SIM Partners today announced that on December 15 its healthcare division will host a webinar featuring a guest speaker from Forrester, a global research and advisory firm, to discuss how healthcare systems can successfully engage with omnichannel patients who increasingly seek service on demand.

The one-hour webinar, “Winning in Patient Engagement,” will be hosted by Amanda Bury, Managing Director, SIM Partners Velocity Health, and features guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Kate McCarthy, on Thursday, December 15, at 11:00 a.m. CST.

“Healthcare systems need to be findable and responsive across all channels and devices, whether patients are conducting voice searches with wearables or booking appointments on their smartphones,” Bury said. “Healthcare systems can succeed by combining location and physician data with contextual content to guide patients through the right touchpoints at the right time.”

During the webinar, participants will learn a number of takeaways, including:

  • Why patient insight and engagement are key to success in a rapidly changing healthcare industry.
  • How healthcare systems can provide on-demand engagement throughout the omnichannel patient journey.

Bury and McCarthy will provide insights into the successful patient experience and take questions from participants. The webinar will draw upon “The Healthcare Guide to Omnichannel Discovery,” an ebook newly published by SIM Partners, and “Healthcare Must Embrace Digital to Win in Consumer Engagement,” a November 2016 report written by McCarthy and Cinny Little of Forrester.

“The Healthcare Guide to Omnichannel Discovery,” based on SIM Partners’ location marketing client work, shares how healthcare systems can unleash location and physician data along with content to convert patients’ omnichannel searches into transactions.
