Company: Emmi Solutions Agency: Ritz Communications Timeframe: March 2008 - Present Prior to hiring an agency, medical IT vendor Emmi Solutions ’ media strategy relied on branded media material—issuing press releases to announce new programs or new hospitals. The problem with that tack was that they hadn’t the name recognition or trust to gain positive media attention. The Chicago-based company, which purveys Web-based interactive programs to help educate patients about their surgeries and make informed decisions, hired Ritz Communications in 2008 to enhance their reputation and to build much-needed media relationships. Since the sophisticated patient communications systems are expensive, Emmi Solutions needed its message to reach the hospital C-suite. “The people at the hospitals who have the authority to purchase these programs are typically C-suite and upper management,” says Kyle Berry, marketing director for Emmi Solutions.
