The Curry Rockefeller Group uses webcasting to deliver healthcare communications for global pharmaceutical clients.
The Curry Rockefeller Group of Companies is dedicated to Thought-Leader-Focused medical education and is a primary source of innovative educational and training for influential health care practitioners. CRG Publishing manages strategic publication plans and works with thought leaders to produce clinical and scientific abstracts, manuscripts, and monographs.
Curry Rockefeller continually seeks new modes of content delivery, and has expanded in recent years to include digital distribution with interactive webcasts using MediaPlatform WebCaster.
Between its clients and expert physician content presenters, Curry Rockefeller serves two demanding sets of stakeholders. When the company considered webcasting as a content delivery technology, it was an absolutely essential requirement that any tool they selected be reliable, easy to use and technically unobtrusive. The webcasting platform could not introduce complexity into Curry Rockefeller’s exacting content development process, and the webcasting vendor had to be able to offer extensive production support if needed. Curry Rockefeller wanted the option of having webcast events run on a turnkey basis as well as the ability to manage webcasts completely by themselves.
“The content we produce here has to be the best that the medical profession has to offer,” says Peter Ronick, VP of Digital Business at Curry Rockefeller. “And, our work is subject to extensive legal review due to compliance factors. We needed a webcasting solution that would fit seamlessly into a process that can be challenging to manage.”
Finally, audience members had to be able to access webcasts on a range of mobile devices. “The medical profession is going mobile in a big way,” says Ronick. “Physicians expect to be able to consume medical education content wherever they are on tablets and smart phones. Period.”
Partnering with MediaPlatform for Webcasting
Curry Rockefeller selected MediaPlatform as the platform for delivering medical education webcasts. The company now has an active and growing slate of webcasting productions. “MediaPlatform has been a great partner for webcasting,” says Evita Sanchez, Webcasting Director at Curry Rockefeller. “The toolset works perfectly for our needs and the production support really makes it possible to provide our clients and presenters with the kind of service they expect.” MediaPlatform was selected by Curry Rockefeller because it addressed the agency’s challenges in developing and delivering webcast content for its clientele.
