In the last decades radical changes in the health care market have happened. Customers continuously require a higher level of quality of service and they become more careful and demanding in the decision process, market intelligence is continuously growing, competition and quality of services are dramatically increasing, as well as the external influences of various lobbyists in many parts of the world. Also, it is important to mention the fact that there are many initiatives for change in many branches of health care delivery, as well as many innovative models for providing health services that change the traditional role of healthcare institutions. In these conditions in order to be competitive on the global market and to create satisfied and loyal consumers of health services, health institutions need to introduce a marketing management concept which is completely in accordance with actual trends on the global market as well as needs and demands of services consumers.
