Last couple of years saw players in healthcare marketing industry
way behind other industries regarding the optimization of
internet. Over restrictive and extra cautious
regulatory seemed to be the impediment. Disease and product websites
development was high and significant, but the approach seemed
limited when considering the potential for digital marketing
initiatives to increase physician and patient awareness.
The past year however has seen a proliferation in the mobile apps, healthcare games
and overall an increase in the media spends on digital.
The interest in mobile, cross-channel and social media strategy is high and
increasing – the percentage of ongoing and pilot projects
are definitely higher.

When Abbott wanted to drive home the benefits of its little red caplet of Surbex XT,
the challenge was to reach a 1000 strong field force in far off corners of the country.
An innovative print and online series began, titled "Power of Red". The campaign had three
successive series: print, engagement and gaming. It was implemented through direct
mailers, sales portal and e-mailers.
According to a recent Brandcare survey of healthcare consumers,
time given by a physician to a patient is one of the most
important satisfaction parameters in a patient- physician
relationship or rather what’s left of it. Doctors are hard
pressed to find time to build meaningful relationships with
their patients. The average doctor-patient time is about 4 minutes at the
primary care*. It's time to turn to online repositories of credible information
that can help patients become aware and informed.
Brandcare developed the Bone & Joint Health portal for Merck Serono, that

Social Media - It's about conversations!
Most consumers aren’t visiting social media sites to engage with brands — they are there to interact with people they know. They are not interested in knowing about products or companies. Even lesser about pills and ailments and diseases and disorders. So when it comes to social media in healthcare communications, the question to be asked is what it is not. It may not be a platform for "conversions" as is the obsession. It's more about the conversations. Social media alone may not be the all encompassing strategy, it may well be a part of an integrated marketing initiative. It may be less prescriptive and more descriptive about conditions that patients are seeking genuine information about. Perhaps that's a safer way of testing the social media waters cautiously without worrying sick about a backlash from patients.
