New York, NY (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
Draftfcb Healthcare has entered into a partnership with Radian6 Technologies, Inc. to use its social media monitoring solution in the healthcare sector. The Radian6 solution helps PR and advertising professionals monitor and analyze social media in all its various forms from blogs to video-sharing sites and from online forums to microblogging services like Twitter.
“A large percentage of our clients’ potential users refer to discussions online when faced with learning more about a disease or treatment,” explains Harold Corbran, EVP and CEO of Draftfcb Healthcare. “The Radian6 solution allows us to monitor and analyze what is being said about the various brands we work with across the spectrum of social media. We have worked closely with Radian6 to develop healthcare specific enhancements and already have these deployed with some of our pharma clients.”
With the Radian6 social media monitoring solution, Draftfcb Healthcare can not only uncover influential sites and individuals with respect to brands and ailments, but discover when misinformation is posted in near real-time, and understand the share of voice of their customers’ brands versus competitors.
“We’ve seen a lot of interest from those in the healthcare sector,” said Marcel LeBrun, CEO of Radian6. “The sheer amount of discussion throughout various social media channels can be overwhelming for a PR or advertising professional trying to monitor and analyze using manual methods. Our solution automates this process and offers sorting options to help find the most active content, helping professionals to quickly analyze the most important data for crafting of strategic recommendations.”
Draftfcb Healthcare will be introducing the Radian6 solution to its clients and agency partners worldwide.
