POC3 STATEMENT TO THE INDUSTRY – November 20, 2017
POC3 has advanced rigorous industry standards of ethics and expects all members to abide by those Ethical Guidelines. We support the recent decision by Outcome Health to withdraw from the Council and accept their resignation. Going forward, we will accelerate our efforts to create verification and audit standards that rival or exceed those of other mainstream media channels. The draft of these standards is currently being reviewed by client and agency advisors serving on the Verification and Validation Standards committee. The final draft will be released for comment to all POC stakeholders in due course.
In closing, we believe the industry can accomplish much more through collaboration and partnership. We stand strong by our commitment to showing the value of point of care marketing. POC3 will continue to work closely with our client and agency partners for the betterment of the point of care industry.

MED AD NEWS PROFILE OF 2016 MANNY AWARD FOR POINT OF CARE – AWARDED TO JUICE PHARMA FOR WORK ON THE HEMOPHILIA POC CAMPAIGN FOR PFIZER
“While we have a captive audience we still need to be engaging as there will likely be other companies doing POC as well. So basically we have to vie for attention. We aim to be bold, simplistic, challenging and thought provoking in our approach. Sometimes the design aspect takes us to “sound” design” and we look to implement audio clues that would cue patients into a video if they are not watching from the start. Most importantly we must make sure that our aesthetic and value proposition resonates on a deep level and is laden with a sense of urgency.” – Justin Rubin, JUICE
