Health Technology and B2C Brand Positioning

Join NEHEN for an interesting keynote and panel discussion with Boston senior marketing executives about patients and marketing strategies and healthcare’s evolving B2C marketing requirements. With this shift to a consumer-centric focus, suppliers will have to convince both healthcare providers and their patients of the benefits of their products and services. Communicating the benefits of healthcare technology to a patient requires a very different approach than the one used to target the physician or hospital administrator.

Keynote Speaker:

Brett Prince, Director of Global Marketing, Abiomed

At Abiomed, through innovative marketing techniques, Brett’s team is raising awareness amongst healthcare providers and potential patients for Impella, the world’s smallest heart pump, which opens treatment options to patients living with debilitating heart disease.
