Engaging Education About Heart Failure
Heart failure (HF) can be a confusing term that not many people fully understand, despite the six million people in the U.S. living with the condition. Novartis partnered with Condé Nast Health to help make HF more easily understood by patients, caregivers, and those at risk of developing HF so they could make smarter, more informed decisions. To help Novartis reach this goal, Condé Nast Health designed many innovative digital and video opportunities to leverage the company’s blend of health and lifestyle publications.
For example, Novartis was able to own the SELF magazine Heart Health Condition Center (which is powered by the Mayo Clinic), gaining 100% SOV, and leveraging SELF magazine’s position as the trusted source for entertaining, relatable, and accurate health information. The Heart Health Condition Center contains award-winning content from SELF magazine’s network of medical experts, trusted clinical content on HF from the Mayo Clinic, personal stories of people living with HF sufferers, and more.
Additionally, Condé Nast Health created two custom videos for Epicurious, focused on preparing and selecting the right food for the heart to maintain a low-sodium diet. This allowed Novartis to tap into Epicurious’ trusted expertise with home cooks to provide genuine tips for people living with this condition in a compelling way. The average percentage of the video that users watched was 74.13%—12% above benchmark.
Condé Nast Health also challenged audiences’ minds with a custom heart health themed quiz featured on The New Yorker website, quizzing people on positive choices if you have HF, to help create awareness and deepen understanding of treatment options available. And in an “explainer” series for Wired, guides take the audience on a deep dive into the inner workings of Entresto with engaging animations that show the mechanism of action (MOA) and show how HF affects the body.
Throughout the campaign, Condé Nast consistently performed above U.S. prevalence for those diagnosed with Chronic HF/HF with an average audience quality of 1.69%.
