Chad Schwarz – President and CEO of Integrated MedReps, LLC
As the president and CEO of Integrated MedReps, L.L.C. (IMR), Chad Schwarz pools together his many years of career development as a marketing representative, practice administrator and director of patient and community relations for multiple healthcare and medical offices throughout New Jersey, as well as his experiences as a national lecturer, author and founder of the Howell Chamber of Commerce Medical Division. Chad founded IMR with the goal of helping medical practices realize their maximum potentials through sharing what he has learned about developing a successful medical practice through consistent, effective marketing strategies.
Since graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Chad immediately began his career focus in the health and fitness industries, working as a sports coach, health and fitness specialist and trainer. In each of these roles, thanks to his professionalism and ability to obtain measurable results, Chad became responsible for planning, implementing, evaluating and subsequently redirecting marketing strategies to increase new client flow. Early on, he realized the value of catering to client satisfaction and providing high quality client care to maximize the positive client experience, which in turn garners new client referrals and maintains a solid base of existing clients.
Staying in the vein of healthcare and wellness, Chad began working specifically in the medical sector in 2004, where he became the regional marketing representative for a well know rehabilitation hospital. Here, he continued developing successful marketing initiatives and forged on-going relationships with referring physicians, realizing a marked increase in new patient referrals for the hospital based practices. In 2006, Chad became practice administrator and director of patient and community relations for Affiliated Foot and Ankle Center, L.L.P., a multi-office podiatry practice in New Jersey, which he still supports today through the IMR program. Under Chad’s marketing and practice management guidance, Affiliated Foot and Ankle Center has gained a steady flow of new patients in addition to their existing base of satisfied patients.
Further enhancing his professional experiences, Chad serves the medical community as an international lecturer and author. At least once a month, he speaks about practice management topics at various medical conferences, meetings and programs throughout North America and Canada. He has written many articles about marketing and other aspects of medical practice management. Chad is also actively involved in the Monmouth County, New Jersey community, where he maintains memberships to several chambers of commerce and many charitable organizations. For the Howell Chamber of Commerce, Chad serves as a member of the board of directors and chairperson for the Howell Chamber of Commerce Medical Division, which Chad proudly founded in 2009 to provide the medical sector with specific educational forums, networking opportunities and community exposure. This visionary medical division is the first of its kind in this area and is being mirrored by other chambers under Chad’s tutelage.
In 2009, Chad founded IMR with the goal of helping medical practices realize their maximum potentials through sharing what he has learned about developing a successful medical practice through consistent, effective referral-based, web-based, internal and external marketing strategies.
