How Small Hospital Planners and Marketers can Manage Multiple Responsibilities within One Role

By Hank Neuhoff

For planners and marketers at small or independent hospital systems, prioritization can be one of the greatest challenges. Many who have “Marketing” in their title are also responsible for planning and strategy as well, and it’s apparent that this phenomenon is due to one of two things:

  • Strategy has increasingly become a more important function for the hospital or health system so this job was given to the department that made the most sense: marketing.
  • Or, the planning position was eliminated over time and the function was consolidated with the marketing function.

Regardless of why or how things progressed in the way they did, one thing is certain; planners and marketers in these situations must be strategic in their efforts and find ways to accomplish more work with fewer resources. In this post, we’ll offer some tips and suggestions on how this can be done.

Learning SQL and a Smattering of Python

By Scott Burns

I want to let you in on a little secret: our product, strategic resources group (SRG), and data services team members are the real healthcare experts here at Stratasan.

Our team of developers are pros at what they do: running data warehouses and computing infrastructure that our applications use to store and analyze complex healthcare datasets. But we rely heavily on the expertise of our team members to prioritize what needs to be developed within our applications.

Based on their direction, we learn what our customers are asking for and then determine what new features and products to build. Working hand in hand, our teams create useful tools that can derive insightful meaning from healthcare data.

Recognizing the need to close the gap between our development know-how and their healthcare insight, we’ve taken steps to improve the flow of communication between our teams and proactively facilitate interdepartmental collaboration. Our goal is to decrease the time it takes to get a product to market so we can more efficiently address the needs and goals of our partners.
