Top 30 Medical & Healthcare Videos in 2023

Top 30 MedicalHealthcare Videos in 2023 Creative
"From complicated to clear - that's the magic of health videos."

Have you ever tried to read a medical pamphlet and ended up more confused than when you started? You’re not alone. Big words and complex ideas can make health info feel like trying to solve a crazy-hard puzzle. That’s why health-related videos can be such game-changers. Short, engaging, yet still informative, these videos provide all the information with none of the fuss. Having a video (or animation) explaining the healthcare you provide can help patients better understand what they’re going through. Here are some of the key reasons any medical product or service needs at least one video:

Medical Videos Make Information Digestible

Medical & healthcare information can be complex and hard to understand. A wall of text filled with technical language doesn’t make it easier, especially for patients with language barriers or visual disabilities. A well-made video can simplify this information while making it more accessible and easier to grasp.

Visualization Power

Many people are visual learners, meaning they understand and remember information better when it is presented visually rather than in a text form. Moreover, for more complex discussions, visual representations through animations can help patients form a much better idea of what’s happening.

Encourages Sharing

If you’re trying to educate about a disease or the treatment for it, having it spread around helps inform more of the public. Unlike traditional, written instructions, videos are easily shareable on social media platforms. This increases the chance of information reaching a larger audience.

Helps with Decision Making

The complicated nature of medicine and illnesses can often be off-putting for patients, leaving them hesitant to choose what they want to do with their bodies. Helping to simplify these complex processes allows patients to get a better understanding of what treatment options they have and what preventative measures there are. This means patients are empowered to decide for themselves.
