Meditech Communications Celebrates its 25th Year in Business

Meditech is commemorating its 25th year in business with the announcement of several key milestones.

Meditech began as a small firm in 1993, producing videos for hospitals and recording medical and surgical procedures. The experience allowed the company’s founders to find their niche, producing videos for device marketing and creating programs to educate healthcare professionals and patients. Meditech steadily grew by expanding services to include 3D animation and mobile development, and building a roster of Fortune 500 customers.

“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. This year marks more than 250 medical device projects for clients including Abbott, Boston Scientific, CSI, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Stryker, and many others.

Meditech’s customer count has surpassed the 150 mark, with a diverse client base ranging from small start-ups, to agencies, to healthcare giants. Many of Meditech’s first relationships from 25 years ago still exist today.

After a quarter century, Hagen remains confident about the future of Meditech Communications. “By focusing on our key strengths and always striving to exceed customer expectations, I’m confident we’ll continue to succeed in the next 25 years.”

St. Paul-based Meditech Communications is a nationally recognized, full-service media production agency specializing in motion design, video production, animation and app development for medical device, biotech and healthcare organizations.

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.

A heart-stopping exhibition

The Tin Man can forget Emerald City in his search for a heart and look no further than the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) meeting, where the greatest minds in the field gather annually to improve the future of cardiovascular health. This year the show took place at the Boston Convention Center. For the duration of the conference, Meditech Communications’ work was on full display, grabbing the attention of thousands of attendees in a series of breathtaking animations and videos.

For Meditech, creating graphics for a towering 80-foot outdoor marquee was a new and exciting challenge. The marquee was unique in its design, with seven screens covering almost 3,000 square feet and utilizing nearly 2.3 million LED lights.

During the creative process and before submitting the final graphics for use, the Meditech team worked collaboratively with the client by providing 3D renderings that illustrated exactly how the promotional graphic would appear on the giant display.

Meditech’s presence at the conference was not limited to the marquee. Another prominent display was a 160-foot wide video wall that spanned approximately 2,000 square feet. This was just another canvas for Team Meditech to bring to life.

Additional custom-tailored videos and digital signage were created to attract and engage audiences at the conference. For Meditech, receiving positive feedback and appreciation from our client was a very rewarding part of this project.

Dorothy may have followed the yellow brick road on her journey to Oz, but we are blazing our own path with unique solutions for our clients’ biggest challenges.
