Healthcare Systems & Academic Hospitals
In the world of medical voice-over, one needs to have an authoritative and trustworthy voice when explaining advancements in modern medicine to highly trained doctors and professionals. Comprehension of complex material, fluency in medical terminology, and a delivery tailored to healthcare providers is essential. At the same time, audiences — including children and seniors — benefit from a voiceover style that is sensitive to their unique needs, perhaps with a slower delivery, or more empathic tone.
Medical Advertising Agencies & Video Production Studios
Medical marketing and healthcare ad agencies produce projects using voiceover actors all the time. They have a depth of knowledge and experience with technical and scientific content, in-house medical expertise, medical writers, and creative artists who are experts in all forms of animation. As a voiceover artist, it’s both exciting and rewarding when invited to team up with these producers; the voice that communicates brand messages, new science, patient training, 3D animations, mobile apps, and web content is a critical piece of their state-of-the-art video productions.
Medical device advertising is a growing industry, which uses voiceovers to explain surgical procedures and how medical devices function. In narrating videos about the mode-of-action of medical products, a clear and concise “peer” voice is necessary. Technical narrations like these require an understanding of how things work, and a subtle level of excitement around why they are important and worth learning about.
Now companies are taking a new approach and speaking directly to their potential patients, and this B2C (Business-to-Consumer) style requires a softer, confidently conversational style of voiceover.
A unique category of voiceover that takes a special breed to read!
This type of narration requires a deft balance between being engaging and informative, without being emotional — in spite of the often-scary side effects that are listed. This is because the FDA requires that drug product claims in Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) ads must include “All the risks of using the drug.” The accurate presentation of the risks and benefits of a drug is called “Fair Balance”. In a recent Food and Drug Administration survey, many physicians felt that DTC ads allowed their patients to be more involved and engaged in their healthcare, asking specific and thoughtful questions about certain drugs and treatments.
Under certain circumstances, however, ads can give only the most important risks. This is referred to as “Important Safety Information” or ISI for short. In broadcast radio and TV ads, website videos and telephone marketing, ISI is referred to as the “major statement,” which consists of the drug’s most important risks. The voiceover for the major statement must be delivered in a clear, conspicuous, and neutral manner.
MOA & MOD
Through script, storyboard, 3D animation, music and voiceover, the mechanism of action (MOA) of a new drug helps physicians, pharmacists, and regulatory investigators understand the drug’s interactions in the body. Scientific studies, trial results, data and processes can be simplified and explained more clearly to healthcare professionals, patients, investors and shareholders who need tailor-made information about products and their benefits. The tone of these narrations can vary depending on the overall mood of the piece — cutting edge, inspiring, hopeful, factual, and so on.
Voicing the mechanism of disease (MOD) or disease pathophysiology in a clear and concise way is crucial to helping these same groups of people to fully understand a disease. The videos translate scientific and technical concepts into engaging and often stunningly beautiful audio and visual content.
Patient education TV depends on voiceovers to communicate topical and seasonal messages, and promote products, services and procedures to patients as they’re waiting in an office. Patient videos are a valuable communication and marketing platform offering disease management support, surgical recovery education, lifestyle and behavior change education, and information on medications that will extend the reach and streamline the efforts of care providers.
Educating family members and other caregivers, as well as patients, is the benefit of using videos in-home healthcare. The medical home is a philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety. Narrations need to be straightforward, empathic and paced properly so viewers can absorb the information.
Video productions and 3-D animations use voiceovers to tell the story of how drugs can help manage disease. Pharmaceutical marketing trains medical professionals on the features, benefits and risks of new drugs; and reaches pharma sales teams, doctors and patients via eLearning, marketing, sales presentations and trade shows. Whether aimed to grab the attention of physicians or the consumers themselves, pharmaceutical marketing utilizes both digital and offline strategies to introduce new drugs and treatment options.
Some ways pharmaceutical marketing is implemented is through 3-D medical animations, using voice narration, to train medical professionals on how the drugs assist in managing a certain disease. This can be done through targeted marketing, sales presentations, eLearning and even trade shows, all for the purposes of explaining the benefits and risks of a drug, as well as the features of an exciting new medical treatment. Articulating all this important information and making it accessible to both physicians and consumers comes down to an approachable, clear and engaging voice narration.
