Since 1998, MDTV Medical News Now, Inc. has produced medical, health, business and lifestyle TV content that is syndicated. Over 50 TV broadcast stations, affiliates of Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, My TV or CW, purchase the MDTV content and its strong brand usage license. Each production is strategically designed so that TV stations can create a slight customization to include their local experts. This customization helps to instill LOCAL action whereby the provider or expert “speaks to their community”. Every MDTV station has the ability to augment production value by adding their experts into specified and predefined points in the content or not. Each MDTV affiliate TV station has the option to broadcast MDTV as ½ hour TV show specials, 30 or 60 second medical messages, public service announcements or as news content. All MDTV content is broadcast quality for TV and can be virtually utilized on any screen - TV, mobile, newswires, web, etc. Each individual MDTV topic has a very high production value in that all information is explained in an easy to understand manner for every viewer.
Today MDTV, Inc., a NJ non profit company, is offering the same quality MDTV Medical News Now content that the TV stations license, along with the associated campaign components, directly to hospitals and doctors at the most affordable rates ever! Except for the purchase of any needed technology infrastructure or external media purchase, it’s FREE. What does this mean to each Hospital? Within minutes you can have a web video solution and within one week a Hospital can have their own patient education TV channel. The content can be utilized “as is” or a hospital can order their own customizations featuring their LOCAL providers of choice. In any case the broadcast quality productions can be used both internally (on bedside TV, Web TV, Waiting Areas) and externally in the market place.
