Annual Marketing Planning

Boost patient volume, keep returning patients happy, and increase ROI.

Annual marketing planning allows your organization to assess, build, and measure critical support systems that dramatically improve your chances for marketing success. Our annual planning process serves as the blueprint or roadmap that brings together clear-cut objectives, tactics, systems, strategies, and an appropriate budget to achieve goals and deliver high performance.

Market Research

Maximize spend with pragmatic consumer data.

Market research is a strategic hedge against the risk of losing market share and relevancy in the minds of consumers. We offer qualitative and quantitative research to help your health system deepen your understanding of the communities you serve. Together, we’ll assess current trends of your target audience, identify service delivery model gaps, and optimize your opportunities to make improvements that can generate stronger relationships and better outcomes.

Service Line Growth

Optimize patient services and offerings.

Service line growth strategy provides planning agility, visibility into performance, and a leadership structure that is in sync with your organizational goals. When designed and implemented appropriately, service line growth management can substantially reduce both clinical and operational costs associated with managing a patient population and enable the organization to capture value-based revenue and improve margins.

Marketing Operations

Prioritize strategic marketing functions.

Marketing operations integrates the Ten Adams team to enhance marketing services within your health system. We partner with our clients to leverage each team's internal skills, knowledge, and expertise by pairing strengths that promote revenue-generating opportunities. We even provide training and support to help marketing departments develop their teams, improve their processes and elevate the role of marketing in the organization.

Communications Planning

Increase the value of public relations.

Communications planning involves the strategic exploration of new models for engaging and building relationships with your stakeholders and the community. Extending beyond earned and social media, PR leverages emerging digital channels that authentically connect and bring your brand story to life. Communications planning is purposeful and timely, allowing your health system to deliver consistent, effective health messaging to the right audiences at the right time.

Consumer Strategy

Meet consumers when, how and where they need you most.

Consumer strategy meets the needs of empowered consumer demands by authentically engaging with customers in new ways. Today, consumers are more than twice as likely to use digital sources than a doctor's referral to select a primary care doctor. By leveraging a consumer-centric approach to healthcare access, pricing, and the overall patient experience, you can build purposeful, sustainable relationships with the individuals you serve.


We know Strategy. Ask Kettering Health.

"Taking a more strategic approach to planning with executive visioning sessions led by the Ten Adams team has been incredibly helpful. This concept is so simple, but it's powerful. And it works."

How we're different

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about working with a branding and marketing agency exclusively focused on healthcare? We have answers.

We already have a strategic plan. Will your team use it?


Absolutely! Many of our clients have a multi-year strategic plan they are in the process of following. Our goal is to support you and your executive team, championing your success. We’re here for you — whether it’s filling in a gap or providing tools and resources to move you faster, so you stay on track.


What’s the first step in getting C-suite buy-in for strategic initiatives?


We recommend our clients start with Executive Visioning sessions – which are intentional meetings with C-suite executives that allow for a check on alignment of priorities. Often health system C-suite executives get so busy they don’t take the time to regularly assess and communicate vision. These meetings allow the leadership team and the C-suite to synchronize their strategies, ensuring everyone is working toward the same goals.


Do you have experience with service line prioritization?


Ten Adams has extensive experience with service line prioritization. In fact, we have a proprietary process we use with our clients to help them define which service lines should be marketed and when.


Do you help with crisis communications?


Yes! Our team is made up of communications strategists who have formerly worked in hospital PR departments. We have expertise in updating and developing crisis communications plans for complex health systems.


Can we partner with Ten Adams only for strategy advisory services?


Yes! Many of our strategy advisory services are priced separately from our branding and marketing work, allowing us to develop a custom scope of work that caters to your specific needs.
