Posted on in Case Studies

The Primary Health Network Case Study

The healthcare industry has faced incredible labor pressure since 2020. The need for qualified healthcare providers is expected to grow at 13% CAGR through 2031, markedly faster than the wider labor market. Recruiting is already a core concern for healthcare organizations and openings are only expected to rise. Experts predict an average of 1.9 million healthcare-related openings per year through 2031 to replace existing needs and meet growth projections.

Key Challenges and Barriers

Primary Health Network’s challenge was to locate qualified candidates in sparsely populated regions. Healthcare is also notoriously strict in terms of regulatory compliance, adding another variable to the team’s to-do list. Our team needed to operate within close parameters to ensure efficient ad spend and generate quality leads.

The Results

In the first half of 2023, paid ads served on Google, Meta and LinkedIn generated 385 conversions with a 4.8% conversion rate, well above the industry average. The recruiting campaign delivered:

  • 1.3 million impressions
  • 8,000 clicks
  • $17 cost per lead
  • Twice the number of qualified leads

 Significantly, users converting through paid did so much faster than other channels, averaging just 3.19 days to conversion — 62.55% faster than all channels. Paid users also required 30.53% fewer touchpoints to conversion, interacting with the site an average of 5.58 times. This helped fill positions quickly, mitigating losses in productivity due to staffing issues.

A strong paid effort also helped boost total site sessions, which increased 21.14% PoP. The increase in traffic was high-quality; core engagement metrics improved PoP, including engagement rate (+31.35%), average engagement time per session (+7.39%), and a 934.27% increase in users exploring open positions.
