It’s no surprise that many organizations are turning to videos to connect to consumers. Insivia, an Ohio-based marketing agency, reports that viewers retain 95 percent of a message when they watch it in a video, compared to 10 percent recall when reading it in text.

According to a 2014 survey, 40 percent of consumers said they would rather watch a brand video than read the same information. Even a brief interaction with a video can trigger this response, making a significant impact. In healthcare, the opportunities to present compelling real-life stories filled with emotion and innovation are boundless.

In addition to working with brands in healthcare and other industries, the agency has an independent film sister company in California that has produced feature-length documentaries for Netflix and Hulu.
