Preventative Screenings

The Take Your Health in the Right Direction creative concept urges patients to be advocates for their health. By using information and statistics to reinforce what could happen if regular appointments are missed, the audience is educated and encouraged to be more active in these important preventative health appointments that could save their lives.

Swing Bed

The Between Healing and Home creative concept speaks of the additional recovery time that swing bed/transitional care services provide patients. By providing patients with the tools they need to live independently, they return home safely, successfully, and with a reduced risk of relapsing. “Shortening the distance” speaks to the patient’s choice to rehab close to home.

Telehealth

The Anywhere Care creative concept uses a double entendre; the use of “virtually” could make readers think of a real-time, remote meeting—often considered virtual—and it also refers to the word as an adverb—speaking to the nearly limitless locations patients can choose when they access care via telehealth.
