Infectious Disease Guidelines for Hospital PR & Marketing Communication

Ebola and Measles Updates

Email us to get a copy of the "Infectious Disease Guidelines for Hospital PR & Marketing Communications" report to hospitals in the U.S.  There is no charge for this report.    We're trying to get discussion among hospital communicators on how and if  hospitals should communicate messages about infectious diseases, including hospital acquired infections (HAI), Ebola, measles, and other diseases in the community.

Healthy Populations

Our hospitals today are concerned that "health care" means fixing health problems that people have.  After all, that's how hospitals have traditionally been paid. Replace a knee joint.  Get paid for fixing the joint. The more hospitals did, the more they got paid.  

That is changing with reimbursements from Medicaid and Medicare based on, for example, whether a patient stays out of the hospital within 30 days of discharge. Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements can account for half or more of all hospital revenues.
