AAOE: Building a Physician Referral Network

By Stewart Gandolf
Chief Executive Officer

AAOE logoWe frequently address professional audiences around the nation, and this month is no exception. HSS Founding Partner Stewart Gandolf will speak at the 2012 American Association of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) Annual Conference in New Orleans.

Calendar Note: Stewart’s presentation, Importance of Marketing in Building a Physician Referral Network, will be on Tuesday, May 22nd, beginning at 10:15 AM.

For many medical specialties and practices, the professional-to-professional referral pipeline is vital to profitable operations, and the foundation of a successful marketing program. We’re often called on to share our healthcare marketing experience and insight about building—or in some cases, rebuilding—a physician referral network in the face of aggressive competition.

We’ve also published several articles in our marketing newsletter and blog. The 3 Cs for Winning Professional-to-Professional Referrals (among others) is here in our free instructional library.

As healthcare marketing thought leaders, Stewart and Lonnie are often in demand to speak to professional society meetings, doctor conferences, hospital, private practice and physician groups, healthcare executive, marketing gatherings, as well as Fortune 500 companies. (Read more about booking us to speak about healthcare marketing on this page.)

The American Association of Orthopaedic Executives is dedicated to providing education and resources to orthopaedic practice executives and their staff members. The AAOE is recognized for its educational excellence in practice management. The 2012 AAOE meeting [May 20-22; Hilton New Orleans Riverside] is the organization’s 43rd Annual Conference.
