A bold, ambitious goal for any healthcare marketing agency. But Jennings isn’t a typical agency. Our focus isn’t on what’s been done. We’re far more interested in what’s next. And in this complex healthcare environment, that’s exactly what our clients need us to be focused on. We’re constantly looking ahead. Guiding. Anticipating change. It’s a philosophy that’s led us to develop novel approaches for more than 80 healthcare clients around the country.

We were the first in the country to introduce a hospital mommy blog. The first to advocate and develop online communities for healthcare systems. The first to champion digital physician relations as an integral part of strategic marketing plans. The first to teach healthcare organizations the importance of using social media to manage crisis communications.

Every day, we’re thinking about new ways to approach hospital and healthcare marketing and advertising. And how to give patients and families new perspectives and new information on healthcare – so they can make better, more informed decisions.

We think that will make the world a healthier place. And we’re always looking for partners who think that way, too.

The upside: If you were in an emergency situation and found unconscious, the Medical ID feature might provide life-saving information to a first responder, even if your phone is locked. Also, if you have a severe or life-threatening allergy, this app increases the chances that your condition will be diagnosed and treated quickly. Equally important: you can list your current medicines, since some could possibly interact adversely with other medications an emergency physician might use to treat you. Another benefit: This option can also be a useful tool for parents to ensure that they are contacted right away if something happens to one of their children. You can use the Medical Notes section to keep a record of other important information, including recent surgeries or other medical interventions, medical implants and previous hospitalizations. You can also indicate information…
