Above all else in healthcare, digital media has fully empowered and educated the consumer of services. This changes everything about health marketing…or at least it should. We start Marketing Health with that new consumer – who she is, how she gathers and uses information -- how, where and why she is seeking information on digital platforms. Once marketers get beyond merely paying lip service to “following the consumer”, how should that deeper understanding of the healthcare seeker inform branding, media planning, messaging, and longer term customer relations? And how are marketers gathering consumer intelligence and leveraging big and small data with analytics to build 360-degree views of their customer?

The Obama 2012 campaign brought the benefits of big data to the forefront of political campaigns and many other organizations in D.C. Hear how Enroll America has incorporated these models into their digital media efforts that drive insurance exchange enrollments, and what they’ve learned about its limitations. Adam will offer his considerations for your organization as you face the big data decision.

We’re not selling soap here. The major agency holding companies are spinning out new agencies to cover the health vertical because media planning and buying in the space is radically different from other B2C and B2B segments. People use these media differently, come to it for different reasons, and are not moving towards a transaction. The au courant demand side ad tech tools don’t necessarily apply here. The media mix itself is complex, encompassing professional, institutional and consumer audiences. The legal and regulatory considerations are unique. And so we bring together leading agency planners and buyers to explore the intersection of digital technology, disciplines, tool sets and considerations that distinguish healthcare from the rest of the agency portfolio.

The Affordable Care Act changed the game and raised the opportunity for insurance providers. Tens of millions of new customers are now in market, shifting insurance company marketing from b2b to b2c. The challenges are diverse. Not only is messaging and planning/buying different, but marketers have to cultivate new customer acquisition channels, vet new sources of data, and understand new class of customers. The sheer complexity of the new exchange system poses educational challenges to all and raises questions about who in this new public/private industry partnership is responsible for doing what in the marketplace? Our panel of insurance industry marketers and agencies explores marketing in the post ACA landscape.

Social media has caused an explosion in health-related information sharing, but this is one arena where “word-of-mouth” is not always a good thing. Misinformation can be dangerous to consumers, but real-time and over-zealous correctives from industry players can put companies at risk. The FDA is only beginning to offer guidance on how the pharma segment should handle social media communications, so it is unclear how regulations apply here. Yet online forums and social networks have become the go-to sources for many consumers. How are healthcare providers building policies and procedures for engaging the social media space? Who will shape this conversation – providers, regulators, consumers?
Does healthcare marketing really need to look and sound the same? And must it be so boring? As the segment expands into ever more media, how can agencies push the boundaries to stand out? How can marketers work within the many messaging regulations and the generally serious segment but find new creative hooks? Is there room in healthcare marketing for creativity and even fun? In this discussion we explore how agencies are innovating around creative and messaging while continuing to color inside the lines of regulation and taste.

With computers and sensors now in patients’ pockets, mobile technology is poised to transform modern healthcare at every level. From preventative services to device monitoring, communications with providers to fitness, treatment support, training, etc. the smartphone is a game changer. But first things first. How do healthcare marketers prioritize their entry into this limitless opportunity? How do marketers assess when, where and how much to go mobile…and before their competition beats them to market?
