By hs-admin

[SHSMD15 Podcast Series]  This podcast previews the SHSMD15 presentation of Deb Pappas, Senior Director of Marketing, and Kevin Pawl, Director of Patient Access, at Boston Children’s Hospital.

DEB PAPPAS Boston Childen's Hospital


Physician strategies that historically focused on the local market neglected the burgeoning growth area of referring national physicians. In their advanced SHSMD15 presentation, Boston Children’s shares how the Voice of the Customer was leveraged to reimage the referring physician experience drive national growth and deliver high-touch and streamlined service to its referring physicians.


Boston Children’s Hospital has implemented a national physician relations and business development program, enhancing patient access systems and services; and integrated the customer and physician marketing effort.
