TARGETS MARKET OF EXISTING PROGRAMS AND THE GAPS IN RRMC MARKETING STRATEGY
Part of the targeted program in which RRMC added to its existing program was the Heart and Vascular Center, by opening Heartburn Treatment center. The Heartburn treatment center utilizes a nurse manager which is quite similar to the management model employed in the ED. One of the diagnostic procedures involves PH monitoring using the Bravo capsule. This is targeted at potential patients; the “Nurse First” program emphasized the role of the hospital commitment to patient care. The first person a patient saw in the ED was basically a nurse, not other employees from the registration department. All these sets programs are aimed for total delivery of good health care.

As a result, more and more guests are looking for hotels following practices to protect environment. Becoming a green hotel can be the foundation for a great marketing strategy, and the first step in marketing is providing consumers with what they want or need. A growing consumer base exists for green hotels, and marketing the green practices of a hotel can help to position it distinctly in the market place. Previous research has indicated that customers would choose an eco-friendly hotel over a standard hotel if they were deciding between two otherwise similarestablishments. If the hotel is a desirable place to stay, it will attract the usual range of customers plus those who will specifically seek out the hotel for its environmentally sensitive practices. A very limited research documented on Indian hospitality industry has prompted the authors to identify customer’s behavior towards eco-friendly hospitality lodging practices. Objectives The paper assesses the factors contributing to consumers’ attitude and behavior towards green hotels. The study also tries to assess whether the consumers are willing to pay for hotels that engage...

...Strategy in the Global Environment Synopsis of Chapter This chapter looks at the strategies companies adopt when they expand outside their domestic marketplace and start to compete on a global basis. The chapter opens by discussing how global expansion creates value for a company. The focus is on the ability of global companies to transfer distinctive competencies across national markets, to realize location economies from basing individual value-creation activities in the optimal location for that activity, and to ride down the experience curve more rapidly than competitors that are focused on just their domestic market. Next the chapter examines two types of competitive pressures that firms competing in the global marketplace typically face: pressures for cost reductions and pressures to be responsive to local conditions. These pressures place conflicting demands on a company. The sources of pressures for cost reductions and pressures for local responsiveness are explored. The discussion then turns to the different strategies that companies can pursue in the global arena. Four different strategies are reviewed in some detail—an international strategy, a multidomestic strategy, a global strategy, and a transnational strategy. The pros and cons of each of these strategies are debated. A link is made between the appropriateness of different strategies and the pressures for cost reductions and local responsiveness. It is suggested that the optimal strategy is...

Health Care Organization's Service Strategy

...Malachi McCormick Health Care Organization's Service Strategy HLTH310 20 October 2013 Here at Wynnthorpe we believe in an overall healthcare experience. A patient’s healthcare experience with us begins before they even walk into the hospital and reaches past the process of discharge. Patients form their own views on the hospital at every step along the way. By taking the best systematic approach to satisfying and providing quality care to a patient is the key to having a successful organization. By observing other companies we have understood that self-service technology is playing a very important role in a costumer’s experience. This type of technology would be used for routine interactions. For emergencies patients will still receive 1st response care. However we believe that allowing patient’s to take some parts of their healthcare into their own hands empowers them in a way. Letting them know that we at Wynnthrope wont overwhelm them with all the simple practicalities that they (if they so choose) can handle themselves. Our employees will be well versed in customer care. Upon patient arrival for care or just questions employees will be inviting and helpful. By having happy employees to help our patients this will help to create a healing environment. Of course when asked about their jobs our employees will harp on all the good things that their jobs provide. Others will see how happy their jobs keep them and will look into our organization more...

...Global Business Strategy A firm employing a global business strategy operates in several markets around the world, but offers the same product or service with only minor changes in the local market. These businesses are typically very centralized, with the research and development and decision making taking place in the home country. Coca-Cola uses a global business strategy. It offers the same product worldwide and the firm's decision making is centered in the United States. Multidomestic Business Strategy Firms employing a multidomestic business strategy operate worldwide, but in a very different manner than global firms. Multidomestic firms are highly decentralized, with strategies and decisions being made large in the local market. For example, a firm using a multidomestic strategy may develop different products in different markets and it will usually leave the marketing in specific countries up to the local offices. Local offices tend to have a great deal of autonomy and freedom.

The Health and Wellness Spa Weight Loss Treatment: Communication Strategy

...The Health and Wellness Spa Weight Loss Treatment: Communication Strategy Internally: I think that the best way to communicate internally is through emails, bulletins boards, and providing updates via team huddles. It can also be an updated section listed on the home page intranet for all employees to visit. There can also be prizes and giveaways to help promote the new health and wellness spa.
