Sales Skills Found Valuable on the Client Side
Rachel Wixson, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Cipe Consulting Group
Summary: Sales Skills are also valuable on the client side such as helping patients understand how they fit into the picture.
A lot of our customers are competing against like organizations and big cities, so in Chicago there’s any number of hospitals or doctors a patient could choose to see, and patient portals are where things are going, so I think there’s a lot of work to be done in helping the patient understand where they fit in with initiatives that the hospital is rolling out. That would be another great way to break in that wouldn’t require, it certainly requires knowledge of patient care and services that hospital provides and many things you would learn, but not necessarily system.
