DRCHSD Fall Communication Webinar Series Session 2: Building your Reputation: Internally, Externally, and Online

Health care is consumer-driven, and prospective patients make decisions based on many factors including cost, access, quality, experience, and their connection to us. These patients, or consumers, identify with the messages and overall image you create for your organization; it’s so much more than a logo or your colors, although those are important too. The way you define who you are as an organization – the way you look, feel, act, speak, and deliver care – is critical for cultivating loyalty and patient retention. It will describe every interaction with your organization: patient care, community relations, how the phone is answered, your website — and even your billing statements.

Speaker(s): Amy Yaeger, VP of Strategic Services and Brian Lani, VP of Creative Services; Legato Healthcare
