The need for a solution that could quickly and efficiently provide hidden insights into the success of its marketing efforts was critical for the provider to meet its enrollment targets and ensure the company’s success.

In this case study, we examine how the provider utilized managed data warehousing to monitor brand interest and advertising metrics. These insights helped drive efficient lead generation and enrollment success within the tight deadline.

The Insurance Provider

Operating in the southeastern region of the U.S., this insurance provider’s goal is to be the leading Medicare Advantage plan provider. They are focused on improving the health and well-being of their communities through personalized service, quality, and enhanced care experiences.

With a target audience of those 65+, they employed a multi-channel integrated marketing strategy that included:

  • Broadcast Television
  • Broadcast Radio
  • Streaming Radio
  • Out-of-Home (OOH)
  • Print
  • YouTube
  • Display / Banner
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Paid Search

Short Recruitment Time Challenge

The annual enrollment period (AEP) for Medicare Advantage plans is the metaphorical Super Bowl for marketing and advertising. With a finite time to reach, influence, and close as many new members as possible, Medicare marketers and their digital marketing agencies need to monitor brand interest and advertising metrics quickly and in real-time.

With multiple advertising and marketing channels that involved large amounts of data from multiple sources, there was a critical need to simplify data management to uncover business intelligence (BI) and improve marketing performance. Challenges included:

  • Connect 22 data sources and harmonize the data into a single platform.
  • Data was stored in different systems and formats, making it challenging to access and analyze.
  • The company faced challenges in generating reports and insights from the data.
  • Data governance was poor, leading to data quality issues and inconsistency.
  • The company lacked a centralized platform to store, manage, and analyze data.
