What is Healthcare Advertising and PR? 

Healthcare marketing and PR is the process of strategic communication and outreach designed to attract and inform healthcare consumers, keeping them engaged with the health system. 

Marketing strategies within healthcare integrate omnichannel and offline/online tactics to drive engagement and accelerate product growth. Health systems measure the success of their marketing channels through specific metrics that are aligned with key performance indicators (KPIs), and/or marketing return on investment (ROI).

Of course, healthcare marketing is very different to marketing in other sectors as there are many more rules and regulations involved.

Healthcare advertising and PR work can be extremely technical or extremely sensitive and requires writers and artists who are fully trained in order to write meaningful advertising messages that are going to connect with the audience.
