Marketing in the Healthcare Sector: Journal of Marketing Special Issue Introduction

As the world faces a pandemic of a magnitude not witnessed for over 100 years, we are reminded of healthcare’s fundamental role in our interconnected world. Consumers (patients) seek health, healthcare providers and institutions work to deliver care, insurance companies and governments monitor its costs, markets compete on it, policy regulates it, and society benefits from its successes or is challenged by its failings. Marketing as a discipline, however, has not lived up to its potential contributions to this important aspect of our lives. We believe it is time to bring marketing’s system-level and customer-centric view to this important topic. This Journal of Marketing Special Issue on “Marketing in the Healthcare Sector” is dedicated to promoting research on healthcare marketing with the goal of improving knowledge of this critical research domain. This session will launch the Special Issue by overviewing its objectives and potential topics. Scholars from across the marketing discipline will share a short description of their own views on the key unanswered questions facing marketing in the healthcare sector so as to inspire your involvement in this topic and in the special issue. Join to learn more about this important topic for our discipline.

Speakers: Len Berry (Texas A&M University), Punam Keller (Dartmouth College), Irina Kozlenkova (University of Virginia), Cait Lamberton (University of Pennsylvania), John Lynch (University of Colorado), Detelina Marinova (University of Missouri) and Jagdip Singh (Case Western University), Vikas Mittal (Rice University), Maura Scott (Florida State University), Steve Shugan (University of Florida), Hari Sridhar (Texas A&M University), S. Sriram (University of Michigan), and Rick Staelin (Duke University)

Ph.D. Student Scribes: Hayoung Cheon (University of Michigan) and Nah Lee (Duke University)
