Maximizing Referral Source Relationships with Continuing Education
Do you depend on clinicians’ referrals to grow your business? How many new patients do you receive each month because of a nurse recommendation? Learn how you can maximize your referral relationships while remaining fully compliant with Medicare/Medicaid regulations. Continuing education [CE] is a requirement for most clinicians and it is a yearly challenge for them to maintain. This session will review a variety of CE programs offered by providers and manufacturers that successfully strengthened their referral source relationships, and will go into detail on how you can also provide ongoing, quality continuing education for your most important referral source – the clinicians in your community – at no cost to them.

HME Business Summit
St. Louis, MO: Sept. 8-10, 2013
Session: Online cash sales – Beat them at their own game
With Amazon the latest retail giant to target the 50-plus market, it’s no longer a question of if HME providers should sell cash products online, but how can they get a leg up on the competition.
Lisa Wells and Justin Racine will compare and contrast the online marketing strategies of two very different providers: At Home Medical, an established e-commerce provider that’s in the process of overhauling its efforts; and Care Resource, a traditional brick-and-mortar provider that recently threw its hat in the ring.
Both Wells and Racine say online cash sales is an area where HME providers can really flex their muscles. “They’re the product experts,” Racine says. “Quite a few caregivers and patients don’t have any idea about the products they’re purchasing.”
Wells and Racine will share the results of both company’s online initiatives and how to apply those strategies to your business.
