Direct-to-Consumer Medical Marketing for Patient Education - Overview
As the Internet and other technologies become more integral parts of everyday life, the average patient strives to become more educated about his or her ailments and illnesses. But instead of finding relevant and well-sourced information, patients often find poorly researched answers to their health questions. At DDA Medical, we understand how important patient education is in today’s medical and healthcare environment, and provide the tools necessary to inform and educate patients via a wide variety of services.
Patient education is often closely connected to new patient acquisition, as prospective patients search for information about symptoms, treatments, or procedures before choosing a physician or course of treatment. By providing clear and concise educational information, your medical practice, medical device manufacturer, or pharmaceutical company can provide honest information in a manner that highlights an understanding of their needs and attracts prospective patients.
Well-built and informative medical websites are critical to patient education, and DDA Medical has the capabilities to design, develop, and launch the perfect medical website to fit your needs. From talented graphic designers and experienced programmers to video specialists and degreed copywriters, DDA Medical offers every service under one roof.
DDA Medical can also create patient education materials using traditional marketing methods and other types of interactive marketing tools. Whether you simply need a patient information brochure, or you take advantage of our high definition video production studio to create an educational video for use on the Internet, DDA Medical will meet and exceed your expectations.
Direct-to-Consumer Medical Marketing for Patient Education - In-depth
Today’s patients want to be informed consumers. They want to know about their health and condition; they want second and sometimes third opinions on a clinical diagnosis; they want to know about all of their treatment options, they want to know about the skill and experience of their attending physician, they want to research all possible specialists, and much more. Outside of patient-to-physician consultations, how do you answer all of their questions? Simply put, patient education media will serve a dual role: provide patients with the information they search for and provide you with the direct-to-consumer medical marketing that will grow your practice or increase sales within your medical organization.
