SocialClimb, a leading provider of advanced analytics and strategic marketing solutions in healthcare, is thrilled to announce the continuation of its corporate partnership with the Academic Orthopaedic Consortium (AOC Connect), the country’s premier organization dedicated to the advancement of academic orthopaedic leaders. This collaboration reaffirms both organizations’ commitment to enhancing the effectiveness of leaders within the academic orthopaedic community as they endeavor to drive the growth of their clinical enterprises.

The AOC’s mission is to enhance and propel the national academic musculoskeletal arena by freely disseminating best practices spanning business strategies, leadership methodologies, educational paradigms, clinical innovations, and research insights to its elite national academic member community. The AOC serves 5,400 academic orthopaedic leaders across 170 university based orthopaedic departments and another 70 health systems and private practices.

Founder & CEO, SocialClimb

With critical leadership from SocialClimb, the AOC has provided foundational education specific to best practices in healthcare’s digital marketing space.  This has included numerous case studies featuring “before and after” scenarios involving AOC member institutions highlighting the efficacy of SocialClimb’s growing suite of innovative digital marketing solutions, bolstered by analytics to measure that impact.

“Continuing our partnership with AOC Connect aligns perfectly with SocialClimb’s mission to transform healthcare marketing through data-driven solutions,” said Ty Allen, CEO of SocialClimb. “Our collaboration is designed to empower leaders in the academic orthopaedic field, helping them to not only meet but exceed their growth goals through innovative marketing strategies and technologies.”

SocialClimb’s tools enable leaders to understand market potential, measure marketing program effectiveness, and enhance patient outcomes through targeted marketing efforts. Additionally, the ongoing collaboration will focus on expanding healthcare marketing educational resources, offering more in-depth training sessions, and hosting joint conferences aimed at addressing the most pressing challenges faced by the academic orthopaedic community.

“From day one, Ty Allen has brought a contagious energy to our AOC Business & Leadership Symposium and to his ongoing conversations with our members throughout the years.  His leadership has been critical to helping our members to better understand, and to successfully navigate, the increasingly complex healthcare environment specific to digital marketing,” stated Michael Gagnon, Founder & CEO of AOC Connect. “Our members are under significant pressure to drive the growth of their clinical enterprises, with fewer resources, and our continued partnership with SocialClimb provides an essential partner to help our members fulfill their goals, at lower cost.”
