42. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Video Content Leveraged • Numerous platforms: – Microsite – YouTube – Facebook – Google+ – Vimeo • Cross promotion on Pinterest and Twitter.

43. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings The Digital Future

44. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Question #1 • How can the reach of physician liaisons be expanded, allowing them to more effectively form connections between faculty/medical staff and referring physicians?

45. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Questions 2 & 3 • How can physician relations programs stay ahead of the curve, anticipating the wider adoption of digital communications by physicians? • How can physician relations teams use digital technologies to more readily support specific programs targeted for clinical growth?

46. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Physician Relations & Content Aggregation • Traditionally, this is what we’ve done. • Today, how can we do this more efficiently? • Aggregating content for digital distribution is simply the evolution of that function. • In the digital future, the physician relations team needs to become an aggregator and distributor of assets that are of value to referring physicians, by way of digital platforms.

47. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Content Aggregation • Physician relations site/blog/microsite as the portal to information valued by community physicians. • The physician relations team, or one designated member of the team, would be responsible for reaching out across the organization and establishing processes for receiving regular news and information updates from various departments and faculty.

48. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings The Digital Physician Relations Specialist Two potential paths: 1. Digital Communication becomes part of the job function of each physician relations specialists/liaison. 2. The Physician Relations Department designates a digital content specialist who aggregates, disseminates and distributes digital content via social channels.

49. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Option 1 • Liaisons would take part in daily physician engagement activities using Twitter. • Scheduling tweets, responding to direct messages from physicians and office staff, acknowledging retweets, and retweeting news and information shared by medical staff/faculty. • Familiarizing & training practice managers and community physicians on info available through digital platforms. • Training practices on the use of digital platforms. • Distribute collateral for practices that promotes social channels/resources for referring physicians.

50. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Option 2 • Physician Liaisons must still learn more about digital communications and social media, but aren’t daily practitioners. • Liaisons spend time training and education referring physicians and practice staff on ways to access expertise and resources via digital platforms. • One Digital Content Specialists handles the daily content aggregation, distribution and dissemination via social media.

51. Lyle Green, MD Anderson Cancer Center Dan Dunlop, Jennings Staying ahead of the digital physician trend • Is there risk in moving the physician relations program down this digital continuum? • Not as long as you recognize this is part of an integrated program • Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. • These digital platforms are not intended to replace person-to-person contact.
