The busy fall conference season is upon us and the fun begins. Honestly, I love traveling to all of these events (other than that part about leaving my family). I seriously feel lucky to take part in so many amazing healthcare IT and EHR related events. I know that some people see them as work, but they are all learning and fun for me. I guess I’m weird like that.
Next up on my calendar is MGMA this weekend. MGMA 2015 is in Nashville which is exciting for me since I’ve never been to Nashville. I hear that Nashville is chock full of great healthcare IT companies. My schedule is already jam packed with meetings. I’m also excited to see what practice managers are going to say about the current state of healthcare. I’ll be evaluating them for EHR PTSD (Although maybe it will all be ICD-10 PTSD).
If you’re going to be at #MGMA15 or live in Nashville, the good people at Stericycle have put together a tweetup on Monday, October 12th from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM at the Fuse Sports Club inside the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Covention Center. You can find all the details for the tweetup and RSVP here. Everyone’s welcome to attend the tweetup whether they’re attending MGMA 2015 or not. I hope to see many of you there.
Hosting the #KareoChat
I’ll be once again hosting this week’s #KareoChat where we’ll be discussing Ways to Grow and Market Your Practice. The chat happens every Thursday at 9 AM PT (Noon ET). I hope you’ll be able to join us tomorrow. Here’s the 6 questions we’ll be discussing:
- What are the most effective ways to market your practice today?
- Which new opportunities are you watching that you believe will eventually help grow your practice?
- What tools or technologies do you use to help grow and market your practice?
- How do you engage your existing patients in your marketing efforts?
- What sources do you look to to stay up to date on the latest marketing practices?
- In what ways can small practices compete against large health system competitors when marketing their practices?
This topic is becoming more and more important to small practices who are trying to figure out how to survive. I hope you’ll all join me on the Twitter chat and share your insights into the topic.
