Speakers and industry leaders will dissect the many facets of healthcare content marketing. Learn from content marketing leaders who won’t let regulations, HIPAA, or enterprise-based challenges get in the way of connecting with customers and growing their businesses through epic content.

The agenda for the day includes:

8:30am – 8:35am Welcome

2:00pm – 2:45pm Breakout Sessions (2)
3:00pm – 3:45pm Keynote Presentation

Here is just a sampling of some of the great breakout sessions:

Mary Beth Pate & Loren Chylla will help us explore how Cleveland Clinic has worked with partners such as the New York Times and Washington Post to deliver highly engaging and creative native content using the latest digital technologies. They’ll share cases involving the use of 360 video, interactive timelines, and fully integrated programs utilizing social, content and earned media.

Ahava Leibtag, longtime CMWorld speaker, will demystify plain language. The healthcare customer journey is complex. We want to meet our customers where they are and help them understand the steps they need to take to get better and achieve wellness. But often, our stakeholders want our content to sound like The New England Journal of Medicine when we know our customers don’t respond to that type of language. In this session you’ll learn the realities of plain language, how to talk to your stakeholders about it, what “dumbing down” is really all about and how to write better for healthcare audiences.

Matt Bakaitis and his partners from Falls Digital will talk about the challenges – and opportunities! – of working with an agency. As an extension of your team, your agency partner wants to understand your expectations and deliver successful outcomes – but effective communication is key. In this session, we’ll discuss how to communicate effectively with your agency partner by providing the right context and information they need to help you achieve your desired results, and how to learn from missteps along the way to make every new project better than the last.

Nathan David & Emily Babbitt will discuss Google customer insights, and how this can help your healthcare content marketing. Impactful marketing insights don’t have to come with a high price tag. As care affordability initiatives have squeezed healthcare marketing budgets, data driven marketing has become more imperative. Data drives effective marketing efforts that can be measured and defended. Learn about Google Trends, Google Analytics, Data Studio, Keyword Planner, Consumer Surveys, and other free Google tools that are invaluable for healthcare marketers.
