20 September, 2019  

For medical and pharmaceutical companies, being accurate when conveying a message is crucial. And since those often involve going over complex ideas or sensitive issues, communication can get tricky for the healthcare industry.

But don’t worry! There’s a light at the end of that tunnel. 

Actually, there’s more than just light. There’s also images, animation, color, storytelling, music, and even sound effects… Figured it out already? Yeah, we are talking about video! 

High-quality healthcare video production can help you educate and inform your audience, or promote your company’s purpose in simple, brief, and compelling ways. Combining hard data and creativity to make understandable, beautiful, and unforgettable content —if done right, at least!

Creating Effective Healthcare Videos

However, before taking a deep dive into our chosen examples and figuring out how to make amazing healthcare videos, let’s take a moment to talk about why you’d even want to.

Video is the preferred type of content by both marketers and audiences. Why? Simply put, Engagement. Good videos are fun to watch – or at least compelling, – easily capture viewers’ attention, quick to improve brand recall, and help increase conversions. 

Moreover, the medium’s versatility gives you a lot of freedom to approach topics exactly the way your business needs to. Whether you are talking about animated explainer videos, live-action tutorials, Educational PSAs, or anything in between… the possibilities are endless.

That said, even though there are plenty of roads you can take for your healthcare video production journey, there are some basic aspects to consider from the get-go. Aspects that should be present regardless of the shape your particular video takes:

  • Tone: The medical field generally deals with sensitive issues, like serious conditions and diseases, which is why it’s so important to be cautious when choosing your video’s tone. A funny video can be offensive, and a too solemn one can scare away your audience. So, it’s all about how you balance that to communicate the message with the right tone. Take this video as an example of how we managed to use the right dose of humor in a video about a mortal disease:
  • Targeting: Ok, following what was just said, there’s a basic rule that implies that if you send the right message to the right people, you’ll get (more than) the right results. Understand your audience, and talk to them on their terms. 
  • Quality: This is a general yet crucial rule that applies to any type of video production: high-quality matters. You should always make sure that your content is truly remarkable to make the right impression. And maybe more importantly, to avoid making the wrong one!
  • Rhythm: Videos that really work have a nice flow that helps keep the viewer engaged throughout by pacing the action. 
  • Clarity: As you already know, these videos usually have to explain complex ideas or concepts. That’s why making those not-very-easy-to-grasp elements understandable is the key to its success.

No one likes braggers, us included. However, that’s not why we are putting Orthoscience’s vid here. Don’t get us wrong, we are really proud of the work we did with it! But this video earns its spot on the list because it gives us the perfect example to illustrate a couple of important points. 

Orthoscience is a platform developed to create an online community where orthodontics update relevant data about patients, treatments, and more. So, as you can guess, this is not something that just rolls off the tongue.

But our creative team here at Yum Yum Videos loves a challenge, so we set out to apply the same principles we use when we deal with illustrating complex IT-related solutions: A focus on simplicity, visual appeal, and creating understandable, even relatable scripts. The results you can judge for yourself 🙂

Nucleus PatientEd – Nucleus Medical Media

Nucleus Medical Media is a cutting edge agency that has been called “the Pixar of Medicine” because of its high-quality animations and illustrations of surgery, biotechnology, medical devices, and more. 

Nucleus PatientEd is the first automated patient education software, which sends patients 3D animations of their conditions and treatments and uses content from Nucleus Medical Media.

As you can see, this explainer video is super connected with its intended audience. It showcases a lot of details of the benefits medical practices can get out of using the software. It’s dynamic, informative, and fun to watch. It takes the combination of creativity with hard data to the next level. 3D animation like you’ve never seen before!

Oncology Care Model – Video Seo Pro

Healthcare organizations can benefit from video because they can help to tone sensitive issues down. And this video is a great example of that!

The Oncology Care Model offers a coordinated and higher quality program for cancer patients. As you can imagine, the topic is emotionally challenging, especially to patients. That’s why Video Seo Pro, the video company behind this production, crafted this sweet, easy-to-digest, and very informative explainer video. 

Healthcare animation, combined with great storytelling, is an awesome option to make those subject matters more approachable, and make the viewer not only engage quicker but also feel comfortable. Good job!

Right Care Alliance –  Epipheo

This video showcases a different tone and style from the previous healthcare animations. 

It was created for the Right Care Alliance, a non-profit organization that seeks to make health care accountable to their communities by putting patients in the center of the health system, and it was developed by Epipheo. 

Because it’s such a serious and important matter, Epipheo chose to go with a dramatic live-action approach that showcases the complicated side of healthcare: that it’s expensive and doesn’t include that much actual care. Altogether, you get an emotional piece, that appeals right to the feels!

ODS – Idea Rocket

Whiteboard animation has the ability to transform complicated subjects into easy to understand ones. Plus, they are fun to watch because the information unfolds right in front of the viewer’s eyes! 

So, this Office of Dietary Supplements explainer video, made by Idea Rocket, is the perfect example of how to create an engaging whiteboard video for this niche. All in all, the company not only delivers the message in a clear and simple way but it does so by harnessing the full power that this particular style brings to the table.
