Specialty Spotlight: Patient Education

Healthcare companies understand the value of creating videos targeted directly to patients. From awareness and educational programs, to patient documentaries; these videos are reaching audiences in clinical settings, in the home and on-the-go through mobile devices. For 25 years, leading healthcare and medical device companies have partnered with Meditech to develop all types of programs for patient audiences. To date, Meditech has produced over 300 titles on patient education. These programs typically focus on medical conditions, procedures, postoperative recovery, living with a disability and how to use a medical device. Our recent work includes a series on diabetes self-management, stroke recovery and living with a heart monitor.

Behind-the-Scenes at our On-Site Studio

Last month, Meditech kicked-off production on a 41-program patient education series on women’s health. Through a combination of skillfully-shot footage and detailed medical 3D animation, this series educates viewers on topics such as pregnancy, labor and delivery, and how new moms can best care for themselves and their newborns.

We also specialize in “patient profile” videos, which are documentary-style programs that feature patients who have benefitted from a new medical technology or procedure. These videos are both informative and heartfelt, providing viewers with an introduction to the technology, while allowing them to empathize with the patient and visualize how the technology could improve their own lives.

We are proud of our patient education portfolio, and would be interested to discuss how we can help you with your patient education needs.

“Our clients appreciate that we understand how to communicate with both medical professionals and patients, and can deliver their messages using a variety of media and technologies.” said Brian Hagen, President of Meditech Communications.

In 2018, Meditech delivered its 400th patient education program, covering topics from women’s health to living with a remote heart monitor. Meditech has long supported marketing new medical devices by developing 3D animation, video and mobile applications.

Engineering a Multi-Camera Production à la TED Talk

Meditech recently had the pleasure of producing a TED Talk-style promotional video for a leader in the American engineering industry. The private presentation was held before a live audience at a local theater close to the firm’s Twin Cities headquarters. The promotion was captured from multiple angles with six cameras, strategically placed around the theater. Meditech’s experience with multi-camera productions made it easy to recreate the TED Talk look, on stage and on camera.
