    • The National Institutes of Health have recognized these facilities for excellence: Cancer Prevention Research Unit, Cancer Information Service Center, Comprehensive Cancer Service, Digestive Disease Research Center, Child Health Research Center, and Children's and Adults' Clinical Research Centers
    • Yale-New Haven Hospital is the only hospital that provides facilities with nationally recognized care in the greater New Haven/Southern Connecticut area
    • Competitors can not compare to Yale-New Haven Hospital’s quality of care and leading research
  • 6.
    • Patients located in the greater New Haven/Southern Connecticut area
    • Primarily focused with:
      • Older individuals (age 40 and up) suffering from all types of Cancer, Pediatric care (infant to age 18), as well as women’s health, and psychiatric care
  • 7.
    • Demographics suggest an increase in the aging population (age 60 and up) in the greater New Haven/Southern Connecticut are
    • The area in which Yale-New Haven Hospital could benefit from growth would be long-term care
    • Yale-New Haven Hospital does not currently have a long-term care department/center where it can focus on acute and chronic diseases affecting the aging population
  • 8.
    • The development of a long-term care center/department that would focus on research and treatment of acute and chronic diseases that affect the aging population (age 60 and up)
    • The center/department would also focus on rehabilitation services that affect the aging population (age 60 and up)
  • 9.
    • Comments: Yale-New Haven Hospital is regarded as one of the top hospitals in the nation. However, the development of a long-term care center/department would benefit the aging population in the greater New Haven/Southern Connecticut area

  • 14.
    • Demographics suggest that healthcare expenses for all individuals age 60 and up are covered either through Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance
    • All services offered at the long-term care facility can be covered through Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance
    • Individuals who do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare (age 60-64) can use their private insurance to cover medical expenses with a 80/20 policy. This is a very common insurance policy used throughout the greater southern Connecticut area
  • 15.
    • Individuals who use Medicare to cover their medical expenses can do so through Medicare Part B and D. Prescription drugs through Medicare Part D can be attained at the main hospital through referral from long-term care physician/therapist
    • Low income individuals who use Medicaid to cover their medical expenses can do so at the long-term care center
    • We accept Medicaid, unlike our competitors, because the use of Medicaid to cover medical expenses is the largest growing coverage in America
  • 16.
    • Our survey will be sent to four anonymous individuals age 60 and up from the Yale-New Haven Hospital mailing list. The survey will be hand delivered to the individual’s residency
    • The instructions on the survey are as followed: fill out the required questions and mail back to Yale-New Haven Hospital correspondent (myself). The surveyors will also receive a stamped envelope with correspondent’s address on it in order to be mailed back to correspondent
  • 17.
    • Survey is composed of the name of the individual as well as 3 questions pertaining to demographics, 3 product questions, 1 place question, 1 pricing question, and 1 open ended question. A total of nine questions. Questions 2-8 are Yes/No responses. Question 9 is open ended
    • Questions are as followed:
      • 1) What is your gender?
      • 2) How old are you?
      • 3) Where do you currently live in the greater southern Connecticut area?
      • 4) Do you believe there is a need for a long-term care center in the greater southern Connecticut area?
  • 18.
      • Survey questions continued
      • 5) If a long-term care center were built at Yale-New Haven Hospital, would you use its services?
      • 6) Would you use a bus service to get to the long-term care center if you were unable to get there yourself?

      • 8) Do you feel the payment options (Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance) for the long-term care center are appropriate?
      • 9) What changes, if any, would you make to the long-term care center to ensure that you would use its services?

  • 20.
    • Survey Responses Question 9 (open ended)
    Question 9 I would want it closer to Bridgeport because that is were I live. Other than that, I see no changes necessary. There are no changes. The center would be a great addition to the community. As of right now I do not for see any changes. I would have to use the services before making any final conclusions. I wish that there was a pharmacy within the center so that I would not have to go back to the main hospital to get my medication.
  • 21.
    • At a first glance it seems that the long-term care center would be a great addition to the community and the target customers would utilize its services
    • The one man located in Bridgeport feels that the long-term care center is too far from his residency. A bus service would be provided to transport individuals back and forth from Bridgeport. However, if there is a large population that feels that way it could restrict the amount of individuals from Bridgeport from utilizing the center’s services. A mass bus transportation system might be necessary, but it would be costly
  • 22.
    • One of the surveyors stated that he wished that there was a pharmacy within the center to prevent going back to the main hospital for his medications. This could pose a serious problem because our target customers are large users of the pharmacy. Putting a pharmacy within the center would be a good idea, but costly
    • Other than the potential customers in Bridgeport and the lack of a pharmacy, all other services offered seem to satisfy our target customers
  • 23.
    • Based on the survey data two changes could be made in order to improve the center. Our target customers in Bridgeport might neglect the center because it is too far from their residency. Strong advertising of the center will have to be implemented in Bridgeport in order to attract customers. Also, the idea of implementing a mass bus transportation system back and forth from Bridgeport would be costly, however, it would attract more customers to use the center’s services. Also, building a pharmacy within the center would be costly, but it would render better customer satisfaction because customers would not have to go back to the main hospital in order to receive their medications. The higher the customer satisfaction, the more likely individuals would use the center’s services and recommend the center to others. Although these changes would be costly, it would bring in more customers and yield a higher customer satisfaction, which in the long run would pay off. Other than these two changes, the data suggest that the long-term care center would be great for the community and our target customers would use it’s services.
  • 24.
    • The target demographic for the long-term care center is focused on individuals age 60 and up who suffer from various acute/chronic disease as well as those who need access to rehabilitation services
      • Male/female aging population, live at home with spouse or family or in senior living community because of disease/disability, suffer from single/multiple complications that need care in order for them to be healthy/survive
  • 25.
    • 6 week advertising campaign in the two local newspapers (Connecticut Post & New Haven Herald) which are the only two papers in the area of our target customers as well as distributing flyers at Yale-New Haven Hospital which is the largest hospital in the area of our target customers. All done prior to long-term care center opening
    • An emotional advertisement aimed towards our target customer (60+ who suffer from acute/chronic diseases/rehabilitation)
  • 26.
    • Objective is to get our advertisement into the hands of our target customer or target customer’s family through use of print advertisement in the two newspapers and flyers, which will be at the hospital for individuals to take home with them
    • The emotional tone of the advertisement will make our target customers/family want to “take action” about their health concerns or loved ones
  • 27.
    • The advertisement for the long-term care center will be funded by a percentage of sales method. 1/10 th of last year’s net revenue from the Oncology department and Genetics department (split between the two-1/20 th of individual department revenue) will be used to fund advertising
    • Reasoning behind this is because a vast amount of individuals who will use the long-term care centers’ services will most likely suffer from some form of cancer, demographics suggest. The Genetics department has seen an increase in funding because of President Obama’s “pro stem cell” ideals. The department can afford to allocate some funds to the long-term care center. Also, with the potential advances in genetics, many individuals who suffer from diseases that can be better managed with advances in genetics will be using the services of the long-term care center, demographics suggest
  • 28.
    • Considering the survey information and demographics an emotional advertisement that portrays “death/illness” to grab the attention of reader to “take action” about there illness/disability will be used
      • It will “hit close to home”
      • The advertisement will be meaningful to our target customers as well as their family
    • Make it evident that the long-term care center is affiliated with Yale-New Haven Hospital. This will make the reader realize the long-term care center will have great quality since Yale-New Haven Hospital’s logo is on it and they provide nationally accredited care along with high customer satisfaction
  • 29.
    • The communication medium that will be used for the advertisement of the long-term care center will be through the two local newspapers (print) and flyers at the hospital
    • There are only two newspapers in the geographical area were are target customers are and about 95% of the public receives them. The flyers will be in the hospital, which is the largest hospital in the area and the primary hospital that our target customers use for care
  • 30.
    • An advertisement will be placed in the two local newspapers (Connecticut Post & New Haven Herald) to deliver a message about the long-term care center
