The Business Partner Network Member Advantage

BPN members represent uniquely qualified businesses who possess in-depth knowledge of critical healthcare issues and stand ready to provide high performing services. 

Through an IRHA Business Partner Network membership, network members can gain virtual and timely credibility to help build critical connections that can strengthen business on both sides of the table.

As a BPN member, your access includes:

  • C-level (CEO, CFO, HR and other high-level executive contact opportunities) potential marketing and sales touch points within the Indiana Statewide Rural Health Network (InSRHN).
  • Critical access to telemedicine and telehealth professionals and the merging telemedicine market through professionals associated with the Upper Midwest Telehealth Resource Center and the Indiana Telehealth Network.
  • Exhibit opportunities at year-long meetings, forums, seminars and annual conference to market your business and build relationships with healthcare providers within traditional and ongoing popular IRHA meetings.
  • IRHA Video Conferencing opportunities, including the popular monthly “lunch and learn” webinar series, offer strategic positioning opportunities and marketing/sales touch points for IRHA Business Partners on a statewide basis. These video conferences are stored and accessible for six months, adding to a long shelf life for marketing and brand development of Business Partners.

In addition to all of the above, numerous sales support opportunities  (e-mailers, website and digital support, and other opportunities) are available at various levels of Business Partner participation.

Funds received as part of the Business Partner Network will be used to advance healthcare delivery and quality in IRHA programs. The Indiana Rural Health Association is a nonprofit organization, so funds paid to be a Business Partner Network member are tax-deductible.
