HospitalPortal.net & H2M share a mutual client…
“We have relied on HospitalPortal.net to manage our intranet for many years. The “Central Line” as it is called is a
vital tool used for internal communications with our 900 employees and 80+ medical staff at Lake Region
Healthcare. Their easy-to-use interface helps us to keep intranet content fresh and relevant.”
______________________________________________________________________________________________
“Lake Region Healthcare has been a client of H2M since the fall of 2012 and have become an extension of our
marketing department. They treat our business as if it were their own, seeking to learn and understand our industry
and marketplace through in-person visits, extensive research and collaboration with our internal staff on projects
from media production to graphic design and PR to content development.”

Creating an Internal
Communication
Program
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Why internal communication?
 Employee engagement
 Brand ambassadorship
 Work smarter, not harder
For every 2% increase in employee satisfaction,
there is a 1% increase in retention…
Your Employees Power Your Long-term ROI.
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Employee engagement
 Proactive transparency builds trust and
respect between the health system and its
employees.
 Regular internal communication unites
employees by breaking down the silos
and/or barriers between service lines,
departments and locations.
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Brand ambassadors
 Your employees are your best brand
ambassadors.
 Because your patients spend the majority of
their time interacting with your employees,
consistency and authenticity in messaging is
key.
Patients can never love your hospital
until your employees love it first.
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Work smarter, not harder
 You are already developing strong external
content, so capture the messages in one
centralized intranet portal, making it easy for
employees to stay informed and efficient for you
to publish.
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
What’s the best approach?
 An internal communication program that’s integrated within your overall marketing
communication department and that leverages multiple employee touchpoints.
 Tactics include:
 Become your own publisher
 Tell employees first
 Make it a two-way street
 Maintain a regular schedule
 Launch a brand ambassador program
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Become your own publisher
 Manage all of your communication messages across
all channels with a comprehensive content calendar.
 Channels should include all communication
touchpoints throughout the employee experience.
Copyrights HospitalPortal.net 2016. All rights reserved.
Tell employees first
 Healthcare employees are accustom
to being empowered; they are on the
frontlines of making vital decisions
everyday.
 Healthcare employees should be the
first to know…and sometimes the
ONLY to know.
