A video can make your frequently asked questions an engaging and “human” collateral piece. It is a great way to reach out to patients, to provide them with solutions as well as begin a relationship.

Patient testamonial

In a world of corporate advertising, a video of another patient with a similar condition can be very powerful. Testimonials offer real people, with real problems and real hope!

Video tour

Online virtual tours have allowed patients to experience the environment before ever having to step foot into a hospital hall. An estimated 108 million Internet users viewed a Web-based tour as of August 2010, according to PEW Research Group study.

Corporate leadership interviews

We can also use video for internal communication. A video or live cast of a senior leader is a polished and controlled medium to deliver a confidential or complex message to a large number of employees. The b-roll can be edited to illustrate the correct amount of facts, sincerity and personality … if needed!
