Beyond Posting: Using Social to Boost Marketing, Strengthen the Customer Journey, and Break Down Silos
Presented by Chris Boyer, Digital Strategist, Digital Patient Experience Expert, and Principal of @chrisboyer LLC
The rise of social media in health systems – both large and small - has established these channels as a relevant part of marketing and communication strategies. But as these channels have evolved (the adoption of live videos, a heavy focus on advertising, even the adoption of AI & machine learning) have our uses of social media grown at the same pace?
Digital transformation and customer-first strategies are forcing marketing and communication professionals to use their approaches to increasingly focus on our customers’ overall experience. And through this, one thing remains clear: social media continues to play a relevant role in our space.
In this keynote, Chris Boyer will share case studies from across our industry on how social media is being strategically applied, including:
- How social media is being integrated into organizations’ marketing-technology strategies
- How social insights and analytics can help map our customer journeys and yield insights into their empathy and preferences
- How social media can break down the silos between marketing, operations and experience efforts

The Plot Thickens: How to Beef-up Your Storytelling on Social Media
Presented by Melinda Daffin, Digital Content Supervisor, Marketing and Adair LeBlanc, Senior Digital Content Specialist, Ochsner Health
Ochsner Health’s mission is to “Serve, Heal, Lead, Educate and Innovate,” and we’re bringing those values to more people than ever. We’re Louisiana’s largest nonprofit healthcare system, providing care at our 40 owned, managed and affiliated hospitals and specialty hospitals and more than 100 health centers and urgent care centers across the state and now in Mississippi. Additionally, with the expansion of our virtual visit and digital medicine programs, our reach is bigger than ever, giving us the ability to serve patients no matter where they are located. That’s a good thing, right? But one challenge is helping people understand that we’re not just another big corporation. We care about all our patients, no matter where they live. How do we convey that message most effectively? The answer is powerful storytelling on social media.
We’re continually reviewing what works on social media and what doesn’t, and it has become obvious that what works best are posts that tell a good story. Powerful images are a must, whether it is a produced video, a great photo or a live clip captured during an event. People want stories about people. Examples of high-performing, compelling storytelling include:
- Our new “Day In the Life’’ video series, produced videos that showcase nurses, doctors, therapists and others interacting warmly with patients and families on a normal day at work.
- “Ochsner’s Own’’ videos, photos and Instagram posts that highlight an employee doing good in the community, such as a doctor who volunteers her time at a school for developmentally disabled adults.
- Historic images that commemorate outstanding moments in Ochsner history, such as the successful separation of twin baby girls in the 1950s, when such surgeries were uncommon.
Crucial to our continued success is the expansion of three programs: influencers (mostly non-employees), Brand Ambassadors (employees) and Thought Leaders (Ochsner executives who are leaders in their field). Why? Just as people love good stories about real people, research shows that social media users trust real people to deliver those messages more than branded accounts. These programs also allow us to reach users who may not be familiar with the Ochsner brand.
- How we create our most successful videos, such as “Day in the Life."
- How to create historic posts your audience will love with free resources.
- How we recruit and train people to participate in our Influencer, Brand Ambassador and Thought Leader programs.
