About the Solution

Infinitude partnered with USPI to inform and engage their staff during the rollout of new staffing and scheduling software, showing staffers how it would benefit them personally.

The solution was a multimedia viral communications campaign that centered around a fictional, episodic video series, called "Surgical," starring characters based on real-world employees and situations.

The campaign engaged the audience, who were primarily nurses and administrators, to increase awareness of the software’s implementation and drive behavioral change.

The platforms used to engage the staff included:

  • An episodic video series: seven episodes of Surgical, released weekly.
  • An Aurasma (augmented reality app) channel: twenty 30-second update and tip videos.
  • Surgical-themed campaign posters for branding and Aurasma interaction.
  • Stand-up cutouts of Surgical characters for branding and audience photo ops, which were used for viral media sharing, a photo gallery, and a t-shirt giveaway contest.
  • A custom website with videos, a photo gallery, and view-tracking capabilities for each participating USPI location.
  • A phone line the audience could use to call or text feedback and questions to a character from Surgical.

Rebecca Case, Creative Services Manager at Infinitude, along with Jeremy Roberts, Chief Operating Officer, lead the presentation of this project, which she managed throughout its lifecycle. Her intimate knowledge of USPI’s specific needs, and how this campaign catered specially to those, gave her the ability to speak to the strategy’s effectiveness.

Leveraging professional, in-house video production capabilities; the adoption of innovative technologies, such as Aurasma’s augmented-reality application; and the seemingly endless creative capacity of their creative team, Infinitude provided their client a truly viral solution to a common business problem: behavioral change.
