Discharge marketing: Are you taking advantage of this opportunity?
By Jarod Carter
At a time when hospitals are purchasing medical practices and requiring that physical therapy referrals now stay "in house," and even nonorthopedic practices are starting physician-owned PT clinics, marketing directly to the public has become ever more important. It is also key to realize that marketing to those who could use your services should not stop once you have acquired them as patients. Both practice owners and staff physical therapists should share the goal that every patient generates more patients via word-of-mouth referrals. There are a wide variety of ways to accomplish this goal, including what I call discharge marketing.

Marketing is the process of communicating the value of your services to your referral base and prospective patients. Here are a number of communication methods — including direct, internal, electronic, and passive processes — that you can use to connect your physical therapy services with need-driven clients and the general public.
