Marketing a Medical Practice Online
Marketing a medical practice is unlike many other types of marketing due to market forces that affect doctors more than those outside of the medical industry. Advertising a physician's practice through a medical web site must take into account:
- The highly competitive nature of modern medicine
- The Internet allowing patients to educate themselves on the diagnosis and not necessarily taking into account the source
- Price pressure from health insurance and Medicare reimbursement requiring physicians to stretch their marketing dollars farther than ever before
- The marketing of pharmaceutical brands directly to the consumer with the intention of having the patient ask the Doctor
- Value added medical services becoming a financial necessity for the practice
- HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) requirements extending to reputable vendors
- Search Engine Marketing and Paid Search Engine placement affecting branding
