Providing Free Digital Hospital Marketing Space to SAFE Project

Hospitals nationwide have partnered with Innovare Medical Media (Innovare) providing free digital marketing space in hospitals for SAFE Project to help reduce opioid addiction in America. SAFE Project was founded in November 2017 by Admiral Sandy and Mary Winnefeld following the loss of their 19-year old son Jonathan to an accidental opioid overdose. Their mission is to contribute in a tangible way to overcoming the addiction epidemic in the United States.

Reaching the Masses

In this initiative, these hospitals and Innovare have together donated critical marketing space on large digital screens installed in high traffic areas on hospital campuses. Nick Lieberman, President of Innovare, said: “These marketing messages will effectively reach millions of visitors, patients and healthcare professionals with a strong message to fight this epidemic.” Since the Innovare startup, the IMM team has installed hundreds of free cell phone charging stations in hospital cafeterias, lobbies, and waiting areas. The Innovare charging station design incorporates large digital screens for valuable marketing use by the host hospital and regional sponsors.

The U.S. government reports that up to 29 percent of patients who are prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse the drug every day and more than 47,000 people in the United States die every year after overdosing on opioids. Admiral Winnefeld, Co-Founder of SAFE Project says “The most important thing we can do is share the lessons we’ve learned and gathered, giving other families the benefit of ‘If I only knew then what I know now.” Nick Lieberman added, “It is an honor for our team to partner with Sandy and Mary and SAFE Project in their incredibly important mission of reducing opioid addiction in America. We are excited that our hospital media network will provide crucial knowledge to valuable target audiences at these hospitals across the USA.”

Free Charging Stations are Indispensable to Visitors & Healthcare Professionals

Over 500,000 Phones to be Charged in 2020

Innovare Medical Media has projected that over half a million free cellphone charges will be provided for patients, visitors, and healthcare professionals in 2020. By the end of 2019, over 275 charging stations will be installed in 24 states through our hospital partnerships.  

Trips to the hospital are often unexpected, so visitors and patients should be able to stay in contact with their loved ones without worrying about their phone dying. Healthcare professionals also rely on their phones to keep on top of the tasks their jobs demand. The charging stations that we can provide are vital to keeping loved ones in the loop and professionals productive.  

After conducting a sample test that tracked usage over 90 days, data showed that over 2,000 people were able to charge their phone conveniently. Out of those 2,000 users, 94% claimed that the charging stations had “enhanced their experience.” 

Innovare launched their model in 2010 and has contributed over $3 million dollars in marketing sponsor dollars back to more than 120 hospital partners while also providing over $4 million dollars in free hospital marketing. Nicholas Lieberman, an Innovare partner says they “are thrilled to know that there is so much value being brought to hospitals by our free cellphone charging stations. By launching over 30 new hospital programs in 2019, Innovare recognizes that these services are truly critical.”

Benefits of Digital Signage Marketing

How Innovare Charging Stations Can Amp Up Your Marketing

In the last decade, digital signage marketing has gained significant traction as a successful technique to connect with consumers. Innovare has taken this marketing approach and combined it with a free and convenient service for consumers with our hospital charging stations. Visitors, patients, and healthcare professionals can charge their devices while the hospital and local businesses utilize the digital screen to promote their educational and marketing materials. While there are many benefits to using the Innovare charging stations for marketing materials, these two stand out as the most impactful results. 

1. Greater Satisfaction

Digital signage can have a considerable effect on your customers’ overall experiences. In a recent study of 2,000 users, 94% claimed that the Innovare charging station enhanced their experience.

2. Higher Sales Growth

Using the Innovare charging stations assist hospital and product marketing within their facilities and support sales growth. Also, patients that have a positive experience at specific locations are more likely to return for future needs, which can lead to residual profit growth. Our charging stations participate in this visitor experience every day. 

As hospital placed media continues to gain momentum, we are partnering with more and more hospitals and local businesses. Contact one of our team members to learn about partnership opportunities.
