Marketing 101 - Develop Your Patient Base

 

This Ethics CME presentation is typically held in the summer and  focuses on how to grow your patient base and referral network by utilizing HCMS and TMA tools available to you to support those efforts. Regardless of whether you are a young physician developing your practice or an established physician facing a retiring referral base, it is important to know the tools available to you to grow your practice. Many physicians assume that the process is expensive and time consuming. It doesn't have to be. It just has to be disciplined and HCMS can help. This event is open to physicians and their staff.  Stay tuned for our 2021 date. 

HCMS would be glad to provide the CME at Greater Houston Hospitals. Contact Ahuva Terk at ahuva_terk@hcms.org for additional information.
