Hospital Point-of-Care Advertising: Print


WebMD Proiver Services breathes new life into the print marketing channel, reaching patients when and where they need it most.
Searching for answers in a hospital is a stressful experience. But when care providers recommend relevant content, that stress becomes a manageable plan of action. Learning from trusted resources engages patients in the decision-making process and leads to positive health outcomes.

Benefits of Leveraging Print Advertising in Hospitals

Patients forget up to 80% of what their doctors tell them during appointments, making printed advertising a highly effective and useful strategy. Patients take printed material with them after they are discharged, allowing them to reference and review on their own time.

Hospital print is effective. According to Channels of Wisdom for Point of Care:
