The panel will discuss the strategic benefits of each media channel, and the key factors that have made those strategies successful. The session will also cover the unique needs of both paid and earned media in healthcare IT (HIT), as well as the impact compelling content has on both types of programs. It will also take a look at how to break through some of the barriers and what the future holds for paid and earned media in HIT.
Joy DiNaro, AC's Social Media Manager, is one of the panelists who will be featured in a session titled "How Can Social Media Be Leveraged for Real ROI?" The Social Media panel will cover how HIT marketers can determine the best platforms to use, as well the importance of creating, implementing and measuring a strategic social media program. DiNaro and her fellow panelists will also address whether it is better to start with one platform or to take a "big bang" approach across several social media platforms.
"We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to share our strategic insights on paid, earned and social media for attendees at the Healthcare IT Marketing Conference," Amendola said. "Marketing and PR professionals will benefit tremendously from the experiences and expertise that AC and our fellow conference speakers bring to the sessions as they look for innovative approaches to promote their company, increase brand awareness and drive sales."
