Healthcare Marketing Trends for 2014

15 May

In April, I traveled to Chicago for the Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Conference.  Something I do at any event is ask my fellow-conference go-ers what other conferences they’ve recently attended.  Many said the Patient Experience conference was the one and only.  For many, budget constraints limit their organizational investment to one event a year and patient experience is what they felt was the most important.  It wasn’t too surprising to learn that attendance at this particular event has grown from 200 participants in 2011 to more than 670 participants in 2014.

In my last blog, I mentioned interviewing our catalog experts and that’s just what I did…

Our amazing Art Director and her team present several layout ideas to our Executive Management Team.

These layouts may have the garments grouped by color, style or fabrics depending on the focus of the catalog.

As fabrics and styles continue to evolve, they have a direct impact on the apparel and uniforms used in the healthcare industry. In today’s ever changing healthcare environment, it is necessary for scrub manufacturers to constantly research, develop and introduce new innovative fabrics and styles for laundries and healthcare facilities.
