Insight from research indicated that consumers are suspicious and cynical about their health and managed care. By connecting with consumers on an emotional level we needed to reinvent the language, champion a cause and redefine the system.
We positioned Kaiser as a “health advocate,” putting the patient first empowering them to live a happier, healthier life – in other words “To Thrive”.
The integrated campaign, from broccoli tags in grocery stores to TV spots, all embraced the “health advocate” strategic platform and talked to people in a completely new way about their health.


Consideration to join has increased significantly since the campaign was launched. Image attributes increased dramatically. The “Thrive” positioning galvanized the entire organization.
