Show Notes

In this episode, radiology marketing director Dianne Keen and our host Dr. Aaron Fritts delve into effective marketing strategies for IR practices. Throughout the episode, they emphasize the need to educate referring physicians and patients about how IR services can help them.

Dianne describes her “IR Practice Growth Trifecta” as a framework for success. All three parts-- the IR, the clinic infrastructure, and the marketing talent, are essential for communicating with colleagues and patients. Dianne emphasizes the importance of finding a marketing specialist who is knowledgeable about the field of IR, and specifically, details about the procedures that they are marketing. She encourages IRs to invite marketing specialists to shadow them in the lab and the clinic to build this knowledge.

To build relationships with referring doctors, it is important to identify receptive doctors in each specialty and stay in touch with them regularly. Dianne recommends focusing on the most relevant procedures to their practices, sending updates about their patients, and avoiding divisive messaging between referring doctors and their patients.

Finally, we discuss marketing channels and ways to embrace new forms of patient engagement, such as social media. Overall, marketing should be well-crafted and succinct, whether it is transmitted through social media, print, or community events.
