What’s Your Digital Strategy?

Do you have a digital strategy?  Even if you don’t call it out that way, you certainly have digital as part of your overall member and physician strategy these days. 

Hopefully, you start with a few basics like:

  • What do I want to accomplish?
  • How do I measure success?
  • Who am I targeting?
  • What does my target group do online and what tools do they use (and for what)?
  • What is my competition doing?  (and what do companies outside my vertical that I want to emulate do)

Once you know those things, you can start looking at different areas of focus.  The key ones that jump to mind for me are:

  • Search engine optimization
  • Brand monitoring (e.g., Radian6)
  • Content creation (blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn)
  • Moderation and involvement with social networking (e.g., PatientsLikeMe, DiabetesMine)
  • Tele-monitoring / telemedicine
  • Electronic prescribing / EMR / PHR
  • Digital couponing / incentives
  • Gamification
  • Mobile applications
  • SMS
  • QR codes
  • Augmented reality

But, I’m sure there are others…suggestions on what I’m missing?
