As of early March, nearly 80 million Americans have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The current daily rate of 1.8 million doses administered a day is expected to more than double by the end of March to 3.3 million. Before the year is up, the expectation is that any American who wants to be vaccinated will have access, and hopefully, we will have achieved herd immunity.
As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel the question is, should marketers pick up where they left off in February 2020, before the pandemic demanded a radical shift in priorities? What were those plans? Are they still even relevant, or has the old normal been permanently replaced by a new normal, yet to be defined? Which COVID-era changes will remain — because why would we go back? Our panel of marketing and strategy leaders will share their perspectives on the road to recovery, and what they think the new normal will look like.
During this session you will learn:
- How leaders adjusted and adapted marketing priorities as COVID surged, then receded, then surged again in their communities
- Technology solutions organizations embraced and expanded to meet patient needs — and which ones are likely to last beyond the pandemic
- How organizations are managing resources around large-scale vaccinations of patients in their regions
- Strategic initiatives with the greatest potential for recovering lost revenue
- What the post-COVID world will look like for health system marketers and strategists — and the necessary skillsets to navigate the new normal
