Scenario -- VP Feel free to make up facts for the purposes of this (as needed). Background The news (hypothetically): Doctor on Demand, a video telemedicine provider, is announcing a partnership with EarsOnLine (made up company and product), a device that you can plug into any smartphone and use it to insert into your or another’s ear and diagnose an ear infection. DoD focuses on selling to enterprise customers – large employers of all kinds – as well as health plans and argues that telemedicine can be used by them to bring down the cost of health care and boost health care outcomes. DoD also wants to get Medicare to pay for telemedicine visits. With this announcement, the client wants to both let its potential customers know about this new feature AND build support for the federal government to reimburse for telemedicine visits. Assignment 1. Write a strategy note/email to the client laying out how you recommend approaching this announcement: how would you roll it out? To whom? When? What would that entail? What would the message be – and please include some core messages/messaging points? What activities would you recommend they do subsequently? What others assets or additional info would you want from the client? Be as creative as possible! 2. Please include three media targets, and succinctly why you think they are the right target.
