As financial pressures on healthcare delivery organizations continue to tighten, every dollar devoted to marketing comes under scrutiny. The marketing department is part of discretionary expenditures in the budget, so cutting funding to this department is often appealing. People inside and outside the organization wonder what the marketing department does and why it should receive funding. This course will review the 4 Ps of marketing (price, promotion, place, and product) as they relate to healthcare, as well as the input of various stakeholders as related to both internal and external environmental assessments. Finally, the student will be asked to evaluate strategic plans for the application of best practices.
