Are you a CRM professional or do you use CRM Technology in your everyday work? Your expertise is needed!
Volunteers on Exploring Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Technology for Healthcare Task Force will focus on defining how CRM technology can support and be integrated within the healthcare industry in an era of connected and coordinated care. The goal of this group is to explore how the use of CRM technology can accommodate the growing imperative providers have to communicate with their patients through multiple modalities (e.g. voice, video, text, apps) and to manage these relationships with tools that allow them to marry clinical data with engagement and other person-generated data.
