In the face of these challenges, healthcare marketers can implement a wide range of strategies—both traditional and contemporary—to help their organizations successfully navigate this period. This book brings a fresh perspective to many tried-and-true marketing techniques but also discusses new opportunities, including social media, healthcare globalization, consumer engagement, and more.
