Jennifer Stanley on Being a Host Client
Since 1983, PMI educational programs have proven to be an effective vehicle for strengthening ties within the medical community. Managing a medical office today is considerably more difficult than ever before. With PMI’s wide program offerings, physicians and staff have access to targeted training issues that will help the practice thrive in a today’s complex business environment.
Program sponsors utilize PMI programs as an inexpensive means for enhancing physician relationships. The surrounding medical community pays most of the costs associated with the program through class registration fees. Sponsor involvement can help offset program fees through sponsorship fees or in-house arrangements. This creates a win/win situation for both the sponsoring organization and the medical community it serves.
Apart from financial considerations are its merits as a physician relations tool. Unlike most marketing activities that are only geared toward increasing utilization of the hospital services, PMI programs give a great deal back to the physician community. PMI programs can help establish your facility as the community leader in medical office education. This recognition provides you with a unique ongoing physician relations opportunity.
