AltaMed Health Services Selects Wovenmedia to Power Their Healthcare Video Network
San Francisco, July 24th 2012 – Wovenmedia, a place-based media services company, today announced that AltaMed Health Services has joined its growing list of customers. The large healthcare provider is using Wovenmedia’s Video Publishing Service to assemble and deliver custom programming to TV screens in their clinic locations across Southern California. With this recent addition, networks powered by Wovenmedia will now reach over 14.5 million viewers a month.
AltaMed, Southern California’s premier network of community clinics, senior care programs and health and human services for the entire family, is using the Wovenmedia Service to communicate with patients and visitors on multiple screens in 19 clinic locations. Providing content in both Spanish and English, they will deliver entertainment and educational programming to screens in all clinic common areas.
“Wovenmedia gives us a powerful branded marketing platform. We appreciate the ability to control programming on our screens and add our own video messaging,” said Gwyn Chafetz, Director of Branding, AltaMed. “We can promote our services, enhance our brand and improve the waiting room experience with relevant, engaging content.”
Wovenmedia’s Video Publishing Service allows businesses to manage their own video networks, publishing content to TV, web or mobile. Wovenmedia’s clients create video channels that combine their content with rights-cleared content from leading media companies.
“Wovenmedia is delighted to add AltaMed to our client list. Our platform is a perfect fit for the healthcare space where providing a controlled, family friendly viewing experience is ideal,” said Susie Opare-Abetia, CEO, Wovenmedia. “You can’t flip on a cable channel in the ICU waiting area and expect appropriate content to consistently show up – in a sensitive situation like a healthcare waiting room, the venue needs control of their screens and their brand.”
Wovenmedia is a privately held company founded in the spring of 2010 and led by a team of technologists and media professionals, on a mission to redefine the way enterprises use video to engage their customer base across multiple viewing platforms.
