MGTO 30300 — Business Problem Solving (Harms/Balko)


Finding HCP Portal Examples

A major component of the Deloitte case involves identifying what will and will not work well in the implementation of a customer & marketing strategy for an HCP Portal. One way to generate good ideas for a proposal for this case is to identify other implementations of HCP Portals which met with either success or failure. Working examples can familiarize you with the landscape of HCP Portal products, and they can inform the search terminology used to find more resources on the topic. When searching, consider the alternative terms which may be used to refer to HCP Portals, and if you get no results searching one, try searching another! Here are some key terms to try:

  • "HCP Portal" OR "Healthcare Provider Portal" OR "Health Care Provider Portal"
  • "Physician Portal"
  • "Provider Portal"
  • "Primary Care Physician Portal" OR "Primary Care Doctor Portal"

In addition to these terms, consider broadening your search even further by including terms related to "patient portals". You will find many more results by this method, but the focus of the information will be slightly different. 

Once you have identified what looks like a good product, don't hesitate to take the search to Google to see if there's any publicly published information about it. Be aware that these types of products are generally proprietary, so certain pieces of information may be inaccessible.
