NEW YORK and CINCINNATI July 30, 2020 — Captivate, North America’s leading location-based digital video office network, today announced the launch of Captivate | Health—a strategic partnership with PatientPoint®, the trusted leader in patient and physician engagement solutions. This new, exclusive partnership will leverage the industry-leading PatientPoint physician network to help consumer brands reach a high-value audience of active consumers and healthcare professionals at the point of care.
With the launch of Captivate | Health, Captivate—known best for its office building media solution for nearly 25 years—now provides consumer brands access to two new captive environments with minimal distraction. In medical office waiting rooms, brand messaging on digital screens will reach a highly receptive audience as consumers prepare for their appointment. In back-office areas, brand messaging featured on digital screens will engage physicians and medical staff. This partnership provides a competitive advantage for brands to influence decisions in the offices of approximately 40,000 healthcare providers nationwide.
“Our foray into the health vertical began with Captivate Scan,” said Lorenzo Papa, Chief Revenue Officer at Captivate. “Our partnership with PatientPoint is a natural extension given the similarities between their network and our core offering. We are excited to partner with the point-of-care industry’s leading provider and deliver another relevant environment for our advertisers to reach a highly valuable audience, wherever they may work, live or play.”
The Captivate | Health network will also extend beyond point-of-care locations, targeting both consumers and healthcare professionals on their mobile devices.
“Now more than ever, health and wellness is becoming an increasingly important aspect of the consumer journey,” said Linda Ruschau, Chief Client Officer at PatientPoint. “Together with Captivate, we are excited to offer brands a powerful opportunity to influence and engage both patients and physicians in a trusted setting where important healthcare conversations are taking place.”
Known for its vast network of nearly 12,000 elevator displays located in 1,600 premier office buildings across North America, Captivate connects advertisers with millions of unique monthly viewers through creative, research-driven and Nielsen-measured advertising and marketing programs. By engaging its viewers with timely news and actionable information that helps balance the personal and professional demands of the workday, Captivate provides advertisers with a highly desirable and difficult-to-reach audience of affluent and influential business professionals.
