Wellness communications are a vastly underutilized opportunity for most healthcare providers – sharing health tips, encouraging screenings and other preventive measures. Thankfully, many have realized that automating wellness outreach allows them to share these ideas with patients without much cost or staff time investment. But even after finding a cost-effective way to communicate, the question still remains for many providers “What am I going to promote?”
Below you’ll see some of the most common wellness outreach topics among our clients, but also know that there are plenty more opportunities beyond these. If you Google the phrase “National Health Awareness Calendar”, you’ll find numerous initiatives throughout the year you might leverage depending on your practice specialties. For example, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October is the perfect opportunity to remind women about the importance of a mammogram screening.
Popular wellness outreach topics:
- Flu vaccinations
- Colorectal cancer screenings
- Childhood immunizations
- Sports physicals
