Wound Care's One-Two Punch

Modern retail is all about the customer experience. In the wound care patient’s world, the experience is even more important. With the changing healthcare landscape, incremental sales are now a part of the consumer healthcare experience.

But how do you make sure the patient is satisfied with the experience, enjoys optimal therapeutic benefits, and that the products you provide match your wound care patients’ needs and wants — all while revenue to your bottom line? Moreover, how do you use rapport building and questions to build and maintain a long-term relationship at the same time to preserve your mission, too?

This webinar will teach wound care professionals how cash products can enhance the patient experience, the financial and intangible benefits of incremental sales, and how to connect with patients and sell the benefits of the products to them.

Learning Objectives:

  • What caretailing is, and how it connects retail sales to patient outcomes.
  • The tangible and intangible benefits to wound care patients’ recovery and care.
  • Incremental sales and understand why they are so important in healthcare right now.
  • Specific examples of product bundling for wound care patients’ needs.
  • The kinds of questions that will build rapport with patients and uncover their needs.
  • Getting the right products to patients for the right reasons.
