What Keeps Healthcare Association Executives Up at Night...and What to Do About It

The American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), recently published an article called "What Keeps Healthcare Association Executives Up at Night?", based on focus group data from its Healthcare Community Committee. The research highlighted concerns that we've been hearing for a while, including...
  • Associations need to identify non-dues revenue models
  • Members are looking for healthcare associations to provide answers and information
  • Associations have a critical need to for assistance in curating healthcare-related information and delivering it to members.
  • Associations need agility to respond to a changing healthcare landscape that is difficult to predict.
These are exactly the kinds of concerns that are driving the adoption of agile digital publishing methods by a growing list of organizations, like the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, International Association for the Study of Pain and American Society of Health System Pharmacists.  With tools like the Tizra digital publishing platform, we're seeing that many of the most pressing issues can be addressed.
  • Adopting an agile, direct approach to selling digital content, such as books, journals, newsletters, or online courses, directly to members adds a significant and profitable source of non-dues revenue. With a platform like Tizra, there is no need to share the revenue, and you have the ability to remix content to create highly targeted product offerings for subsets of your audience, which improves relevance...and sales.
  • By providing powerful the search tools Tizra provides, like page-at-a-time full text search, and faceted browsing, associations can feed their memberships appetite for fast and reliable answers.
  • By delivering this content across any browser-based device, be it a tablet, laptop, or smartphone, you are providing information to members in an easy to consume way without the costs associated with printing, shipping and storage. 
  • Publishing platforms like Tizra provide the agility associations are looking for in the delivery of information to members. Not only can associations quickly convert existing materials into digital, browser-based publications, but they can offer associations the flexibility to deliver it in a multitude of ways, including sample chapters, subscription-based pricing, chapter-by-chapter purchasing, company-wide licensing and more.
Offering an e-bookstore on their website allows healthcare associations to generate non-dues revenue,  quickly provide the information members are looking for, and deliver content faster, and with more options, than ever before.

Healthcare association executives, let Tizra help you sleep better at night. Request a demo or review some of our case studies today.

AppGap: Tizra more than just a "great tool for content sellers"

Bill Ives has been writing about knowledge management since the days when for most people that meant color coding your files, so we were really pleased when he agreed to evaluate Tizra Publisher in The AppGap , a blog on the future of work. We were even more pleased when he said "I see this service as a great tool for content sellers." But we thought his keenest insight was into applications beyond traditional publishing... [Tizra Publisher] can also be a useful content distribution system for enterprises that need to manage the presentation of their information. This will be especially useful for verticals with a lot of internal content such as legal firms, pharma, and other research oriented enterprises. Ives saw Tizra's combination of easy and yet precisely controlled content distribution as key for these users, and others needing to share marketing and technical information. Read the full review .

Texas Tech University Center Goes Digital and Reduces Print Budget by 80 Percent

CCFCS curriculum materials hosted by Tizra are winning raves from teachers. After 44 years of empowering teachers with print materials that were aligned with key instructional goals, Texas Tech Curriculum Center for Family and Consumer Sciences (CCFCS) made the bold decision to go 100 percent digital using the Tizra digital publishing platform. At first, the task seemed daunting.  “We printed out a copy of each of the curricula and some of them were four inches thick,” says center director Patti Rambo.  In addition to a massive quantity of materials for its 33 courses with 300-350 teaching strategies per course, the school also needed to meet aggressive revenue goals and appeal to a diverse customer base. The Center’s search for solutions was exhaustive until they were directed to Tizra. “Tizra is flexible enough for us to make up the rules as we go along,” said Rambo. “We were able to design our pages so there’s less scrolling, and we were able to color code the courses

2018 Tizra User Summit: What We Learned by Meeting Our Customers Where We Are

They say you should "meet your customers where they are." Well, for Tizra 's 4th annual user conference we decided to take a chance and do the opposite. Instead of going to Chicago or DC, where Tizra customers are concentrated, we bet on hosting in our home town of Providence, RI. It's not that we don't love Chicago and DC, but we really felt we could do something special with the home field advantage. As it turns out, we were right. The Tizra user community is a silo-busting mix of creatives, technologists, content strategists and executives, who share the goal of building, engaging and generating value from audiences with digital content. For this crowd, we didn't want a sterile conference facility. We felt that by giving them a place they could really connect with, we'd help them connect with each other. Providence, with its vibrant tech and design scene, walkable downtown, and non-traditional venues, provided just the funky catalyst we were loo
