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.”

Boidman on Out of Home Strengths and Risks

May 22, 2018 12:05 am

PJ Solomon investment banker Mark Boidman gave a fast-paced talk on the strengths and risks of out of home at the May 7-9 GO2018 conference. Here’s a summary.

Out of Home Strengths

The big audience. Out of home is the only form of media which can deliver an unsplintered audience. TV in particular has fragmented. A prime time show or TV event does not deliver the viewership it used to due to the proliferation of TV channels and cord cutting.

Projected growth. Out of Home is the only form of media which is expected to grow in the next four years because technology is a friend to out of home and an enemy to most other media. Digital billboards and smartscreens will drive revenue. Look at this slide. Out of home is projected to grow 4%/year over the next five years. Newspapers, TV, radio, magazines and directories are projected to decline.

Out of home overindexes with top brands. Google and Apple are spending 9% of their advertising budget on out of home while the average for all US companies closer to 3% on OOH.

How Outdoor’s Digital Transformation is Winning Over Advertisers (in the UK)

The outdoor ad industry has invested huge amounts in a digital transformation that has helped reignite excitement among marketers by making the format more creative, interactive and targeted.


Print experienced a whopping 10% fall to £1.1bn in UK ad spend in 2016. Direct mail also struggled, with an even steeper 10.4% fall to £1.71bn. TV, meanwhile, saw flat 0.2% growth to £5.27bn, which is forecast to turn into a 0.5% decline by the end of 2017, according to the AA/Warc’s annual Expenditure Report. Compare this to the 13.4% rise in internet ad revenues (£10.3bn) and the 45.4% increase in mobile ad spend (£3.86bn) for 2016, and there’s clearly a stark difference.

However, it isn’t all doom and gloom for the so-called traditional advertising channels. Last year, out-of-home grew total ad revenues by 4.5% to £1.1bn. And although this is predicted to slow over the coming years (2017: 3.4%, 2018: 2.3%), outdoor is backed to remain in positive territory while other traditional channels are expected to fall into even deeper decline.

Spending on health care reached $3.4 trillion in 2016 and is expected to rise, report says

Sabriya Rice, Business of Healthcare Reporter (2/16/2017)

Americans spent nearly $3.4 trillion on health care in 2016 and those costs are outpacing the averageimages1 projected increases in the gross domestic product, according to data published Wednesday.

Health spending grew 4.8 percent in 2016, slightly less than the year before when it rose 5.8 percent.
However, don’t expect the expenditures to stall for long, the report found. They could account for nearly 20 percent of U.S. spending by 2025.

The new data from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services was published online in the policy journal Health Affairs.

According to the analysis, health care spending will grow at an annual average of 5.6 percent from 2016-2025, leaving the nation’s health care tab at $5.5 trillion in less than a decade. That would account for about one-fifth of the economy and dip into the budgets needed to fund other national priorities.
