Trauma connected

trauma/emergency services

The objective of this campaign was to introduce the Centura Health Trauma and Emergency Services System; the first of four primary service lines, or “systems of care” offered by Centura Health. The systems of care create a statewide network, linking communities and facilities to form a seamless patient experience, regardless of where those patients might live in Colorado. The “whenever, wherever” and “when seconds count” messaging for Centura Health Trauma System was based on extensive consumer research. The research established that Trauma/Emergency Services messaging had the greatest potential to resonate with their target audience and also had potential to create a “halo” effect for Centura Health and its 14 trauma centers. An initial sixweek brand campaign provided context and a foundation upon which to build the subsequent Trauma and Emergency Services campaign.

Bad Idea, Good Idea

College Student Giveaway Pattie A. Clay Regional Medical Center is a community hospital located in a college town. So, when the hospital wanted to build awareness and increase volume at their Instant Care Center, the students at Eastern Kentucky University were identified as the ideal target audience. The largest percentage of Instant Care Center patients are ages 19-29. Ten Adams’ objective was to create a fun + simple campaign to convince students — who are away from home and their primary care doctor — that their best choice for an urgent need (but not emergency) is Pattie A. Clay’s Instant Care Center. The message compares bad ideas (that may result in minor injury or illness) with a good idea (and the solution to those bad ideas) — and that’s the Instant Care Center. For this concept, the primary ‘bad idea’ is one that most college students (actually all people) can relate to — the fateful decision to eat something that might be just a little — or a lot — beyond its expiration date. To deliver this message, Ten Adams designed a pizza box with a sticker on top “Open Your First Lesson” that was distributed to more than 1,000 students and faculty at “CityFest “ — a campus Welcome event.

The “Bad Idea, Good Idea” message was located inside the box lid with the contents of the box including an info card, a pizza pen/magnet and pizza cutter with the Instant Care Center logo and phone number.

Google’s Penguin Algorithm Change May Be Killing Your Search Engine Ranking By Stewart Gandolf and Lonnie Hirsch

There’s a definite undercurrent of panic in the phone calls we’ve been getting recently about Google search results…or more often, the results that have disappeared. If you haven’t checked your Google Search results ranking in the past few days, do it now. Take a minute and do a few Google searches just as the regular public might search to find your website online. (Better than 90 percent of online traffic comes to your site via search engines, and Google is far-and-away the biggest of the bunch.) Search using your best keywords in common language vernacular of a prospective patient. (We’ll wait.) In the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) world, a first page ranking is premium—and often hardearned—real estate. And if your site has recently taken a nosedive in ranking, the guilty party is Penguin. The search algorithm that is, not the cuddly wildlife. Some hospital and healthcare marketing websites will be unchanged. But for many others, the near-panicky concern is understandable. Well-established sites that typically appear on the first page of Google results have seemingly disappeared, dropped significantly in ranking, or in some instances have been “banned” by Google. Perhaps a competitor—or a completely oddball site—now appears at the top of the results list. One of our Healthcare Success SEO experts, Jayme Westervelt, explains, “Last month, Google instituted over 50 changes to their search algorithm, named Penguin. The purpose of these changes is to produce more accurate search results to discourage sites that are unfairly “over optimized.” 10

MHT Vol.11 Issue 2 • 2013 www.MHTmagazine.com

If you consider the math that’s involved for Google to adjudicate 34,000 searches per second, the concept of producing more meaningful and correct search results is mind-boggling. In time, Google searches will produce “more high quality sites.” In the near term, however, many small business sites have lost their established footing. Medical practices, healthcare organizations, individual and group practitioners and hospitals need to determine if—or to what extent—Penguin updates have impacted them.

10 Quick Tips from an SEO Expert Google provides a ton of information about how making your website “search engine friendly.” It’s good stuff, but most of it is highly technical, complicated and overwhelming. That said, Westervelt advises “Staying within the Google ‘rules’ is often a matter of common sense. Most website owners want to achieve a high listing without resorting to so-called ‘black hat’ techniques that Google considers unfair or inappropriate. “With insightful planning and experienced technical support, a quality website will be recognized through Google’s algorithm.” Here are some general tips for healthcare marketing websites: • Use the free Google Analytics. Google provides a useful toolbox of measurements for a site owner to see and understand important metrics via an easy-to-read dashboard. This—or similar professional tools—remove guesswork about daily visitors, types of traffic, originating sources, time on site, page view counts and more. • Identify and use the keywords of your audience. Prospective patients don’t always know or search using medical terms. (“Otolaryngologist” vs. “ear ache,” for example.) Think about the words that a layman would use


In the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) world, a first page ranking is premium—and often hard-earned—real estate. to do a Google search. In fact, one of the most accurate means to develop a list of search terms, over time, is to ask patients. • Design for search engines as well as for humans. An effective website will be built for two distinctly different types of visitors…humans and non-human search engines. A classic SEO mistake is to design what looks good; for people visitors who can see images, graphics, colors, etc. Search engines are blind, deaf and dumb in this respect; they only recognize words on a page. It’s a delicate balance to create for these two equally important audiences.

• “Stickiness” signals quality. If visitors leave your site almost immediately, Google may regard quick departures as a sign of poor quality content. Information that is “sticky” keeps visitors interested and engaged with your online material. • Using too many keywords can be an SEO handicap. Over using keywords— either intentionally or unintentionally—can be seen as “stuffing” and a sign of poor quality content that Google wants to avoid. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to know exactly what the algorithm considers a proper keyword density. Begin with what’s natural and appropriate to the topic.

• Communicate the essential three W’s. The primary information of WHO you are, WHAT you do, and WHERE you’re located needs to be obvious to the visitor and to the search engines.

• Proofing (or the lack of it) counts. A certain sign of quality can be spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Nobody’s perfect, but too many errors in the use of the language may carry an SEO penalty.

• Think local. It’s vital to claim your local listing with Google. A national reputation is compelling and important, but knowing that you are located nearby or have a local service area is significant in search engine terms.

And finally, SEO is not DIY. Search Engine Optimization is a professional specialty. You can talk with us or any number of well-qualified SEO resources, but don’t fail to get outside help. Changes that you make today can take time—from weeks to months—to influence your rank with Google. But, since Google searches dominate as a primary source of site visitors, optimization—done properly—will make a significant difference in business and your bottom line.

• Regularly add fresh and high quality content. Google assigns greater SEO weight to new and relevant material on a website. Google provides guidelines regarding what it considers to be quality content practices. (Including a number of things not to do.) • Links are not of equal value. The various kinds of links (and the number of links) to and from a website and internally have greater or lesser value in SEO terms. For example, an incoming link to your site from what Google considers a “quality” site (let’s say WebMD) carries more weight than from a “poor quality” site (an generic site).

Results Surviving cancer is a huge accomplishment for patients and their families. Celebrating survivorship is the goal of Puttin’ on the Pink. With early detection, the fiveyear survival rate for a new breast cancer patient is 98 percent. Through its efforts, the education day and style show gala raised awareness, supported treatment during diagnosis, and celebrated survivorship. The Education Day had almost 200 women in attendance and the style show counted 350 people dressed in their finest.

What do people usually mention when the topic of cancer is introduced? Do they talk about nausea, or pain, or depression? Are issues like crippling debt or infertility addressed? Scars and lost limbs? What about becoming invisible? More often, euphemisms and cliches replace realistic conversations because the fear of the word “cancer” is too great. Attention is focused on “survival rates” instead of the possibility of who might not live. People shy away from raising anyone’s hope, yet hope is what is discussed most often. The general population doesn’t want to know how common cancer actually is, because no one wants to be scared. Therefore, how can anyone talk about wellness without first talking about cancer?

Life / You only get one. HCA Virginia brand campaign

HCA Virginia is a six-hospital health system that serves the Richmond region. It competes with a four-hospital system known for compassion and with an urban academic medical center known for innovation. Although it leads the market in several key services, HCA Virginia has traditionally marketed its hospitals individually, not as a unified system. Focus group research indicated that a straightforward campaign highlighting expertise, volume and technology would resonate with their audience. HCA Virginia looked to Franklin Street to build this new, unified brand platform.
