Marketing 101 - Develop Your Patient Base

Interested in growing your practice? HCMS can help. Building and enhancing your patient base is not easy. 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.

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