Regence Wins Awards for Consumer Appeal to Transform Health Care
Date:7/29/2009

PORTLAND, Ore., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- While Congress debates reforming health care from the top down, Regence was recognized for its work to engage consumers to transform health care from the bottom up.

"Transforming the Health Care System - Engaging Consumers to Create Value-Driven Health Care," designed for Regence by Gard Communications of Portland, won awards from Summit International and from Healthcare Marketing Report's Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards. An interactive version is shared at Regence.com.

Because health care reform is such a huge issue, the goal of the piece was to present it in a way that invites browsing without intimidating the reader. This little booklet delivers the message that covering everyone is just the beginning, reform must also tackle quality and cost, and that takes all of us.

"We submitted this piece because we felt it was an engaging and compelling approach to health care reform, and the award proves it met the criteria: Strength of Concept, Quality of Execution and Ability to Persuade," said Scott Sparling, Senior Vice President at Gard Communications.

The small, colorful booklet is easy on words and heavy on graphics and third-party sources to underscore its messages. It is part of a broad-based Regence campaign to bring consumer instinct and energy to bear on changing the health care system at every point of contact. The next phase of the campaign kicked off this month with the launch of WhatsTheRealCost.org.
