    Over the last two years, the health care sector has experienced immense change and disruption. Join your colleagues on Oct. 29 at MHSCN’s 2021 fall conference to explore the evolution and transformation of health care marketing and communications.

    The End of the Runway: Consumerism, COVID-19 and the Coming Decade

    COVID-19 has driven significant changes in consumer behavior, some of which may stick for years. A number of these changes play into the advantages of new and non-traditional healthcare providers, such as Walmart Health, Walgreens or Teledoc Health, at the expense of hospitals, health systems and other traditional providers.

    While traditional providers have had years to react to the trend of consumerism, the honeymoon may be over. Those providers who want to keep ahead of the new competition and stay relevant to healthcare consumers need to understand these changes and their implications, and act quickly and decisively to stay ahead.

    Chris Bevolo, executive vice president, chief brand officer, ReviveHealth, has provided leadership and guidance in the areas of strategy, brand, marketing, digital, and change management to hospitals and health systems across the country for more than 20 years.

    Chris is an award-winning author of six books, including Joe Public Doesn’t Care About Your Hospital, which became a field guide for driving transformation in hospital marketing departments across the country. He is a frequent keynote speaker and featured presenter on healthcare marketing and branding topics.

    Before joining ReviveHealth, Chris was the owner and lead strategist of Interval, a Minneapolis-based healthcare marketing firm he founded in 1995. He received a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications from Iowa State University and an MBA from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis.

    Covering COVID-19 from the Front Lines

    Pulitzer Prize-winning healthcare journalist Jeremy Olson has been reporting on the COVID-19 pandemic for the Star Tribune since its inception. He has covered the pandemic from all angles – from the rise of the virus to its deadly spread to long-term healthcare facility outbreaks, hospital capacity issues and provider fatigue to daily spread to vaccine development and implementation to the most recent rise of the highly infectious delta variant. While reporting, Jeremy has relied upon information and contacts in the state and federal government, healthcare organizations, providers from around the state, patients, academia and more. Listen to his story firsthand and learn how communicators can work with reporters like Jeremy to help him provide the best, most accurate and objective information possible to the public.

    Jeremy Olson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter covering health care for the Star Tribune. Trained in investigative and computer-assisted reporting, he has covered politics, social services and family issues.

    A University of St. Thomas graduate, Jeremy completed fellowships at the Kaiser Family Foundation, Poynter Institute and New York Times. Honors include a Premack Public Affairs award for scrutinizing a schizophrenia drug trial, a SABEW award for uncovering abuses of meatpackers and a Casey Medal for examining deaths in foster care. His Pulitzer-winning series on child care led to a decline in child deaths. He and his family live in Edina.

    The State of Mental Health of Healthcare Systems and National Trends

    With the COVID-19 pandemic heading into its second year, the impact it has had on the U.S. healthcare industry cannot be underestimated. From severe nurse shortages, early retirements, constant changes and many unknowns, there are a wide range of issues we have not encountered previously. This presentation by Liz Ferron will help you understand what is happening with healthcare employees today and how you can support them and your organizational goals. Liz will share trends and observations she’s seeing from the 40+ healthcare systems she supports with the goal of helping you understand the issues to be better prepared when your staff are struggling.

    Liz Ferron, MSW, LICSW, physician practice lead, has practiced at VITAL WorkLife since 2001 and has her master’s degree in social work from the University of Minnesota. Liz assisted with the development of the physician and healthcare solutions for VITAL WorkLife, and currently oversees the execution of many of these solutions. Liz has contributed to the development and analysis of national surveys, has presented on physician well-being at national and regional conferences and has been published in several medical journals.

    Currently, Liz provides training and consultation to healthcare administrators and individual practitioners in the areas of stress management, navigating change and effective communication. To strengthen her ability to assist healthcare professionals in building resiliency, Liz has completed programs in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Self Compassion offered by the Center of Spirituality at the University of Minnesota, and the “Transform Your Life” resiliency program offered by Amit Sood, M.D., of Mayo Clinic.

    Dismantling Systems of Harm: Racial Trauma in Healthcare

    During this presentation, Dr. Asfia Qaadir will provide attendees with an overview of racial trauma throughout history in healthcare settings and why this matters in their roles as healthcare strategists and communicators today. Dr. Qaadir will also get into the biology of trauma and what it truly means to address and affect systemic change when it comes to issues around diversity, equity and inclusion within healthcare organizations.

    Asfia Qaadir, D.O., is the clinical director at PrairieCare Maplewood and was recently named clinical consultant to diversity, equity and inclusion for the organization. In this role, Dr. Qaadir oversees the integration of DEI in clinical care across PrairieCare’s multiple locations.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from the University of Chicago and medical school degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr Qaadir completed her residency and subspecialty training in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.

    Holistic Digital: A New Approach to Driving Results

    Holistic digital is a data-driven, “growth marketing” approach that drives leads and revenues by increasing the productivity of your digital marketing. When SEO, UX and CRO are considered as one and implemented properly, it leads to optimized website/digital marketing that produces incremental results. Keyword strategy and relevance can significantly impact conversions while page layout and content strategy impact SEO, PPC and other traffic. Optimizing conversion rates depends on a clear understanding of the user journey, neuromarketing and persuasive design psychology. It can be complicated, but when broken down it can be understood by all.

    Cory Docken is the vice president of digital strategy at O8, an agency in Minneapolis, helping clients on a national level take a holistic approach to their digital marketing initiatives. He has over 20 years of design, marketing and technology expertise, working with both small and large clients across retail, higher ed, healthcare and B2B. In his career he has helped world-class brands tackle their most complex marketing technology projects with his knowledge of strategy, design and development.

    Outside of O8, he is the 2022 president-elect of MHSCN (Minnesota Health Strategy and Communications Network), as well associate vice president of programming with AMA (American Marketing Association) Minnesota.

    Maximizing Media Interviews in Good Times and Bad

    We all know the media is a valuable conduit to reaching key stakeholders, whether your organization is communicating vital COVID-related health information, launching a new initiative or is in the midst of a crisis. This session will help you prepare your spokespeople – executives, providers, leaders, etc. – by building their confidence with the tools and techniques to maximize any media opportunity. You'll also explore strategies for creating solid key messages, avoiding common pitfalls and answering tough questions.

    Liz Miklya, senior vice president, corporate issues, Weber Shandwick, is a strategic storyteller; helping clients tell their organizations’ stories to key stakeholders in a way that’s credible, memorable and influential. Liz does that through messaging strategy, executive and spokesperson interview training, presentation training and crisis counsel.

    A former Emmy-award winning journalist with 10 years in the business, she helps clients across the country prepare for interviews related to product or campaign launches, crises and other developments.

    Liz has provided media training and key message strategy for dozens of clients in a variety of industries including healthcare, retail, government and technology. Liz received her master’s degree in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. Her bachelor’s degree in government is from Harvard University.

    by Cory Docken, president-elect, MHSCN board of directors

    Hello MHSCN members, I hope your summer is off to a great start. There is no doubt that this past year has been unlike any other and as things start to evolve back into a sense of normalcy, I want to reflect on some important things I learned during this trying time, in particular around the topic of mental health.

    Being involved with the MHSCN board as well as having healthcare clients has given me a first-hand view of what healthcare marketers and communicators were dealing with this past year. I witnessed their roles descend into that of crisis communicators, often working double the hours, and with some of my close colleagues sleeping in their own offices. Some even pivoted to operational roles to help with the influx of patients. I couldn’t believe it. I want to give a huge shout-out to all those that work in clinics, hospitals, and health systems for everything you did and keep doing to help your organization get through an incredibly challenging time in history.

    One thing is for certain: with trying times comes stress. If there is one thing we witnessed, it’s that the challenges of this last year pushed us to our limits, including with our mental well-being.

    The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides the following mental health facts:

    • Mental illnesses affect 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 25 adults live with a serious mental illness.
    • Examples of mental illnesses including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, PTSD, and borderline personality disorder.
    • Mental illnesses can disrupt a person’s thinking, feelings, or mood.
    • Mental illnesses may affect someone’s daily functioning or ability to relate to others.
    • These illnesses are biological, affecting brain structure and chemistry, and have many causes, including genetics, the environment, and negative life experiences.
    • Mental illnesses respond to a variety of treatments, however, early intervention is critical to aid in recovery.

    Over this last year, I witnessed some clients ceasing operations, plenty of furloughs and it was very common for organizations to freeze spending on the marketing of products or services. It was a very uncertain time for business.

    Facing these challenges and seeing my colleagues face similar challenges made me think about mental health more than ever. I found myself doing things like talking to my primary care provider about mental health for the first time, cranking up the bike rides, changing my diet, and checking in with friends and family members to ensure they were doing ok.

    As things start to awaken and get back to normal, let’s not forget about our mental health. There will always be challenges in our life, maybe even another pandemic (hopefully not!). Talking about mental health and checking in on ourselves and others is something we can make a habit of doing. There are people who care and help is available. In addition to your primary care provider, NAMI Minnesota provides a great starting point for mental health resources.

    I hope you all have a fantastic summer and take the time to enjoy yourself! Thank you for being a part of MHSCN.

    by Emily Lowther, president, MHSCN board of directors

    Spring has arrived in Minnesota, bringing longer days, warmer temperatures (we hope!) and – in a typical year – the final steps in planning for MHSCN’s spring conference. As we all know, however, the past year has been anything but typical.

    During this extended time of physical distancing, connection has become more important than ever. At MHSCN, we have worked to fulfill the need for professional connection by embracing digital education and networking. Our 2021 calendar includes virtual education and networking events, with topics based on the interests expressed by our members. We hope that you will find these opportunities to learn and connect with peers from across the state valuable.

    I am especially looking forward to our next MHSCN Member Connect virtual networking event on April 22, which will feature a presentation by Dr. Tyler Arvig, R3 Continuum associate medical director, on how we can move forward after experiencing COVID fatigue and burnout, followed by time for discussion and reflection. For me, this session comes at the perfect moment, when we are over a year into the pandemic’s challenges but unsure of what the future holds.

    Our 2021 virtual events are open to members and guests, with members receiving the added benefit of free registration. Members also have access to our new MHSCN video library, where you can revisit our programming at your convenience.

    Our members are the heart of MHSCN and we always want to hear from you about how we can best meet your needs. Please share your ideas, suggestions and topics of interest. We look forward to working together to provide meaningful points of connection in 2021.

  • 08/04/2020 1:41 PM | Cory Docken (Administrator)

    MHSCN provides networking and educational opportunities designed to improve the professional skills of those in health care strategic planning, marketing, public relations and communications. While we typically offer in-person events throughout the year, we have reimagined our education offerings for the remainder of 2020 to meet members’ professional development needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. We heard from members in response to a recent survey that they value the education opportunities MHSCN provides and are interested in participating in virtual events.

    In place of our in-person fall conference, which had been scheduled for Oct. 2, we are offering a new virtual education series with sessions in fall and winter 2020. This online series will allow participants to engage with MHSCN’s relevant and timely content while still adhering to state best practice guidance for maintaining health and safety during COVID-19.

    More information about MHSCN’s virtual education series – including dates, topics and registration information – will be available soon. In the meantime, please unsave the date for our canceled fall conference and stay tuned for our virtual education series schedule.

    We appreciate your partnership and we look forward to exploring new education and networking opportunities together.

    As we near the end of the month, year and decade, we at MHSCN have a lot to be thankful for. We're thankful for our members, event attendees and sponsors. I, personally, am also very thankful for my fellow MHSCN board members. These individuals find time in their busy work and personal lives to share their talents with all of us. They have all been so important to me as I grow in my profession, offering resources, advice and maybe most importantly, friendships! 

    In particular, I want to thank outgoing MHSCN President, Paul Fiore. He and I joined the MHSCN board at the same time, and he has been an incredible mentor over the last three years. He is as professional as he is kind. He needs to work on his Connect Four game though! Thank you Paul for leading our organization this year! 

    Some highlights from 2019 include: 

    • Our Spring Conference at Como Zoo in St. Paul, with dynamic digital content and a special guest, Cupid the Penguin
    • A neat Networking Event with a panel of experts on being creative in healthcare 
    • A revamp of our Award of Excellence program
    • Our Fall Conference in Duluth, with speakers who challenged us to expand our roles as marketers and communicators, an inspiring awards presentation and a memorable social at Hailey Sault
    • A mini website refresh. Check it out!

    We look forward to offering excellent conferences and networking events in 2020. Watch for details about our Spring Conference coming very soon. 

    Happy and healthy holidays to you all!

  • 08/11/2019 5:21 PM | Rebecca Kindall Nelson (Administrator)
    Our MHSCN Bridging New Connections 2019 Fall Conference Duluth Minnesota MHSCN's mission for fall conference 2019 is to help healthcare communicators and marketers explore their expanding roles.

    That's why we've invited local and national experts to speak on these topics.

    Keynote: Marketers, Do You Speak CEO?

    Speaking “CEO” is essential for marketing professionals. And yet it is often an area where many marketers struggle. Hear firsthand how a senior vice president of marketing at a growing, five-hospital not-for-profit healthcare system, LCMC Health, successfully made the case for marketing investment to her CEO. In the past three years, the CEO supported a multi-million dollar investment, including: rebranding the health system; adding new FTEs to build a corporate Marketing team, and investing in a CRM tool.

    Figuring out how to connect with your CEO takes more than knowing your follower count, social sentiment, and content performance. You can’t expect your CEO to know what you are talking about and know how to apply it if you aren’t able to translate it into the CEO filter through which they view operations: How is your work impacting the business and strategic objectives?

    Christine Albert, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for LCMC Health, provides strategic leadership for all marketing planning and operations across this a health network based in New Orleans, LA. She also develops and executes marketing plans to position her organization as the market leader.

    She received a master’s of public policy degree from The George Washington University and bachelor’s degrees in mass communications and French from Loyola University, New Orleans. She is a member of the board of the American Hospital Association’s Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD).

    Patient Experience Efforts That Drive Market Share

    Consumers ask their friends, family – and perfect strangers – for insights on the products or services they’re looking to use, including health care providers and services. Delivering a premier patient experience will drive positive word-of-mouth marketing and market share. Health care marketers play a large role in aligning the various patient experience efforts in their organizations. This session will cover ideas that St. Luke’s has used on how to effectively do this.

    Jessica StauberJessica Stauber, MBA, APR, Director of Marketing and Business Planning, St. Luke’s Health Care System is enjoying her second stint at St. Luke’s. Earlier in her career, she was a public relations specialist at St. Luke’s for four years; she then joined a Duluth advertising agency for 12 years.

    Jessica returned five years ago as director of marketing and business planning. She and her team of seven professionals feel privileged to market St. Luke’s and the amazing health care their colleagues provide.

    The Challenges of Rural Obstetrics Care 

    Nationally, hospitals are closing their obstetrics wards at an alarming rate. Minnesota Public Radio Senior News Reporter Catharine Richert will detail how she reported a four-part series on disappearing obstetrics units throughout Minnesota. Her presentation will look at how rural hospitals are coping with market pressures beyond their control and what the long-term impact may be for communities in which hospitals no longer have obstetrics units or carry out planned deliveries. She will also discuss how she covers health care topics in her region, which includes Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health Care System, and how she identifies a good story.

    Catharine Richert, News Senior Reporter, Minnesota Public Radio, covers the Southeast Minnesota region for MPR News and is based in Rochester, Minn. Most of her career has been spent covering politics, both in Washington, D.C., and at the state capitol in St. Paul. More recently, her coverage of the state’s bungled rollout of MNsure and the Affordable Care Act won several state and regional investigative reporting awards. In 2017, her investigations into two publicly funded (but failing) arts institutions in Rochester earned her the Eric Sevareid Award from the Midwest Broadcast Journalists Association.

    Catharine has a bachelor’s degree from Oberlin College and a master’s degree in public policy from the University of Minnesota. She lives in Rochester with her husband, a neurologist at the Mayo Clinic, and their three children.

    Communication Challenges to Build and Nurture Community Health Partnerships

    Health systems and hospitals have recognized that new collaboration is needed with community health organizations if health organizations are to be successful in the age of population health and the journey from volume to value. These partnerships embrace schools, faith-based communities, police and fire departments, housing and economic development agencies. To accomplish joint program planning, mobilize needed resources, and then govern these relationships wisely, effective communication strategies and messaging is essential for the sustained vitality of these collaboratives.

    Jim RiceJim Rice, Ph.D., Managing Director and Practice Leader, Governance and Leadership, Gallagher, brings more than 40 years of experience in the development of strategies for successful formation and operation of integrated health systems in 35 countries. He was a founder of the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Society for Strategy and Marketing, and an executive engaged in forming the Allina Health System.

    He will share lessons learned about wise communications for community health partnerships from his more than 12 years of service on the AHA’s Foster McGaw Award program. The award has recognized hospitals and health systems who best demonstrate how they form and govern community health partnerships for health gain, not just health care.
