  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Your New Cardiologist?
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Video Content Leveraged • Numerous platforms: – Microsite – YouTube – Facebook – Google+ – Vimeo • Cross promotion on Pinterest and Twitter.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Production Process & Results • 60 MDs have been recorded to date • Engagement significantly improved with former “nay- sayer” now promoting to peers • Microsite traffic has doubled that of the “find a provider” section of website • 8,650 page views in first three months. For comparison, the physician finder received a total of 4,053 visits in all of 2012 • Net gain of 23 physicians in first 16 months • Significant growth in patient panels
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Where will physician relations go in the future?
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings The Challenge Looking Forward • Improving Operational Efficiency and Value of the Physician Relations program: – Exploring the future role(s) of the physician relations specialist – Covering more ground with a limited number of FTEs • Geographically • Physician specialties • New referral sources
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings The Digital Future
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Question #1 • With health systems facing declining resources due to reductions in reimbursements, how can the reach of physician relations specialists be expanded, allowing them to more effectively form connections between faculty/medical staff and referring physicians?
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Questions 2 & 3 • How can physician relations programs stay ahead of the curve, anticipating the wider adoption of digital communications by physicians? • How can physician relations teams use digital technologies to more readily support specific programs targeted for clinical growth?
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Physician Relations & Content Aggregation • Traditionally, this is what we’ve done. • Today, how can we do this more efficiently? • Aggregating content for digital distribution is simply the evolution of that function. • In the digital future, the physician relations team needs to become an aggregator and distributor of assets that are of value to referring physicians, by way of digital platforms.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Content Aggregation • Physician relations site/blog/microsite as the portal to information valued by community physicians. • The physician relations team, or one designated member of the team, would be responsible for reaching out across the organization and establishing processes for receiving regular news and information updates from various departments and faculty. • Topics that should be addressed are clinical trials, new faculty announcements, medical education, physician profiles, research, advances in care, and publications.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings LinkedIn Group for Content Aggregation & Distribution • Platform trusted by physicians • Use daily eblast with abstract of discussions and news items • Interactive platform allows for questions and comments
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings The Digital Physician Relations Specialist Two potential paths: 1. Digital Communication becomes part of the job function of the physician relations specialists. 2. The Physician Relations Department designates a digital content specialist who aggregates, disseminates and distributes digital content via social channels.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Option 1 • Through the use of social media, liaisons would have the opportunity to engage a significantly larger pool of physicians on a daily basis. • Physician relations specialists would need: – Social media training: HIPAA, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube… – Familiarity with the organization’s social media policies – Use of Third Party Apps for efficient distribution
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Option 1 Continued • Liaisons would take part in daily physician engagement activities using Twitter. • Scheduling tweets, responding to direct messages from physicians and office staff, acknowledging retweets, and retweeting news and information shared by medical staff/faculty. • Familiarizing & training practice managers and community physicians on info available through digital platforms. • Training practices on the use of digital platforms. • Distribute collateral for practices that promotes social channels/resources for referring physicians.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Option 2 • Physician Liaisons must still learn more about digital communications and social media, but aren’t daily practitioners. • Liaisons spend time training and education community physicians and practice staff on ways to access expertise via digital platforms. • One Digital Content Specialists handles the daily content aggregation, distribution and dissemination via social media.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Virtual Physician Relations Office Visit • Involves the development of digital content that is housed within an online platform, blog, or microsite and is easily accessed by community physicians. • The content would include standard information that is typically and repeatedly shared by liaisons during in-person visits with physicians and their staff. • Transition much of the information to video format. Quick 30 second clips that a physician or practice manager could access at his or her convenience.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Video Content • Given the demands on the community physician, the ability to meet a specialist via video and hear about advances in care becomes a very attractive option. • TuftsMedicalCenter.TV example • Cooper’s South Jersey Medical Report • Signature Healthcare’s MySignaturePhysician.com • Integrate the promotion of that video content through social channels.
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings
  • Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Staying ahead of the digital physician trend • Is there risk in moving the physician relations program down this digital continuum? • Not as long as you recognize this is part of an integrated program • Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. • These digital platforms are not intended to replace person-to-person contact.
