Listening closely.

Patients are at the heart of healthcare marketing. Real people typically making difficult decisions. Whether they’re choosing an HMO or seeking cancer treatment, working hard to learn their true thoughts, feelings, and motivations is what drives more inspired work. Leading to solid results. Patient-centricity is central to our method, and it shows.

Praxis

Do you have the right people doing the right jobs?

  • Brand voice development
  • Collateral/direct mail
  • Customer journey
The Challenge

Make a small patient recruitment organization relevant to a very targeted group of about 5,000 people: gatekeepers who decide whether or not to outsource patient recruitment.

Driving Insight

People appreciate creativity and can’t ignore interesting mail – especially those in the traditionally conservative pharma world. Demonstrating the kind of creativity that is one of Praxis’ key differentiators was our approach in a series of campaigns.

Results

Each yearlong effort led to growth through increased engagements with pharma companies.

Siemens

Sandproof. Waterproof. Youproof.

  • Brand voice development
  • Collateral/direct mail
  • Customer journey
The Challenge

Make a big splash with the launch of Aquaris – the market’s first truly waterproof and dustproof hearing aid.

Driving Insight

The folks interested in this breakthrough would be an active sort. We celebrated them in a co-op campaign hearing care professionals could use to promote both the new product and their practices.

Results

The news was music to active folks’ ears, leading to goal-shattering sales.

HEALTHeLINK

It’s Working.

  • Brand voice development
  • Collateral/direct mail
  • Customer journey
The Challenge

Persuade people and doctors in Western New York to sign up for secure, digital sharing of health information aimed at better, more efficient care.

Driving Insight

With such obvious benefits to doctors and patients alike, simple, clear communication in a series of campaigns was the best medicine.

Results

Year after year, the response from Western New Yorkers and their doctors was resounding. To date, more than 4,000 doctors and more than 800,000 patients are on board. And the numbers are growing.

Rhapsody Study

Has life with diabetes become a pain?

  • Collateral/direct mail
  • Customer journey
  • Logos
The Challenge

Recruit patients for a very specific medical research study on painful diabetic neuropathy in the feet.

Driving Insight

The pain of this condition is unique and intense, so we empathized with patients through striking visuals that dramatized this fact.

Results

The TV generated 16,108,501 impressions and the campaign website logged 49,125 unique visitors. The entire effort led to 1,159 inquiries and 365 prequalified patients.
