10:20 AM Access Selling in Healthcare: Why The Reach & Frequency Sales Model Is Going Extinct

MACRA. MIPS. APM’s. The changes and constraints forced upon our customers are endless. Each new provider
regulation means decreased Sales Rep access. How do we provide value to customers in a value-based
world? It’s not doing the same thing and expecting different results. In this interactive keynote presentation, John addresses WHY healthcare organizations must abandon the reach and frequency sales model before extinction. I mix humor with anecdotes of success and failure during my 18-year sales career. Backed by data, I create a compelling argument for the need to change NOW! I explain what caused Cardinal Health to abandon their proven sales model and implement the Access Selling Process. I provide a simple framework for inspiring change in any Fortune 500 sales organization.
