THIS BRAND IS YOUR BRAND
Publicly Facing Brand Development Site
Full Transparency - Watch as we align our corporate values to the unmet needs of the health care consumer.
Transcarent is a gift to the health care consumer. It’s solving problems most people have assumed are unfixable or “just part of life.”
Your brand is more for them than it is for you. Give them (health care consumers, journalists, the medical community) a window into the brand development process as it evolves.
Create a publicly facing website that is constantly being updated as you work through the culture survey, core values, the messaging matrix and other exercise that help shape the Transcarent brand. Allow comments, create surveys, share results, let people participate and engage with your company as you work through this critical revolution in health care.
Are you the Caregiver; someone who puts the needs or others first and seeks only to serve their needs? Are you a Sage; someone who places ultimate value on knowledge and the benefits of research and experience? Are you the Revolutionary; someone who sees a big problem and isn’t afraid to tear down the status quo and start over from scratch ‘the right way?’
What archetype best defines Transcarent?
Honestly, Transcarent probably has aspects of each of these and more. The best way to know for sure is to have all employees participate in an organizational survey. You’ll probably find out that different groups respond uniquely: care coordinators may view the company as a nurturing Caregiver whereas the innovation team may see the company as an Explorer looking for the next big thing.
Defining your culture is the first step to engineering your brand. Knowing both your strong suits and your shadow sides will not only help tell your authentic brand story, but it can help departments and partner organizations work better together.
Transcarent is moving quickly. In the process of starting a start-up, decisions need to be made quickly but it should prevent the organization from asking deep and meaningful questions and pivoting when necessary. The Audible workshop is a chance to key thought leaders to get together, run through some excercises, discuss and collaborate on key questions and hammer out some meaningful conclusions that all relate to the brand.
Transcarent has several archetypes at work, but how do they work together? This exercise helps visualize the different dynamics with the company and how the different archetypes come together to form your unique brand.
What is the decision path consumers use when dealing with health care? What behavior does Transcarent want them to do? Where can we make small changes to achieve the results we want–that ultimately benefit the health care consumers.
This value exercise helps Transcarent separate the functional aspects of their health care solution from the ultimate purpose of the organization and how you're helping to use digital technology to benefit humanity on the most primal level.
