Broken Record

Silver Distinction in Health & Fitness

Objective

As UCHealth continues to evolve telling our patients' stories, we chose to tell the story of the challenges our patients overcome and how they thrived. Our objective was to share these stories as a way to showcase the breadth of specialties offered at UCHealth as well as the remarkable results and successes of our patients post-injury.

Strategy

The primary goal and strategy of this campaign was to tell a different health care story, one that focused on how the patient not only survived, but thrived after their injury. Our goal is for patients to "Live Extraordinary" and this campaign showed just that. We created this 60 second video for broadcast, digital, and social. We then created several :15 and :30 second spots for individual patients, as well as out-of-home assets, radio, broadcast, social and digital takedowns. Success was measured in video views and impressions, contributing to our awareness and consideration goals.
