Bring your key people together with MEDPresent, a comprehensive live Internet meeting/seminar solution for up to 1000 participants.

MEDPresent allows you to reach your target audience of medical professionals through a live interactive forum on the Internet. You offer attendees unmatched convenience in accessing your people and programs… events they would otherwise miss due to busy schedules.

Participants join in from their desktop to attend a meeting from anywhere in the world. They hear your message in a live meeting environment and have the opportunity to ask their own personal questions.

Virtually any type of meeting ordinarily held in person can be conducted on the web. Prime examples include:

  • Medical educational seminars
  • Opinion leader discussions
  • Advisory board meetings
  • Training sessions
  • Product seminars
  • Marketing events
  • Dinner meetings

The Basics

At the appointed time, participants dial up a conventional telephone teleconference line for audio and make a separate internet connection to join the meeting room environment.*

Within this forum, participants can experience animated PowerPoint  presentations, view Flash animations, participate in a live web tour and share desktop applications. Live audience participation is facilitated through such features as:

  • Q&A via chat
  • Instant polling
  • Real time screen annotations
  • Live video
  • Public or private chat

The Birchwood Difference

Birchwood has over 15 years experience in planning and producing meetings for top Fortune 500 companies. We can seamlessly stage your entire event, or work with your staff at whatever level of project involvement you wish to have.

After extensively exploring your needs, we draft a meeting action plan that outlines your entire production. Then, a dedicated team chosen especially for you handles every aspect of your event or program series.

To generate audience interest, we send the initial invitation in HTML email format, professionally designed with exciting graphics but simple instructions. Nonresponders receive a second email, this time in plain text, gently reminding them to register. Upon sign-up, guests receive an automatic "thank you for registering" email and the day before the event, a next-day reminder with full instructions repeated. All of this is tracked and handled via our proprietary list management software.

Our creative team works closely with you to design innovative media for program enhancement. We are also happy to re-purpose your existing PowerPoint, Flash and video programs for Internet delivery.

Your event takes place in a customized private web meeting area within our MEDPresent meeting application. Online registration and secure login are just part of our modular design that also offers custom surveys, custom graphics for sponsor identification, private scheduling areas, personalized user areas ("login once" access multiple applications) and more. But if you want to keep your customers focused on your own web portal, no problem. Our MEDPresent service can seamlessly integrate into your existing Internet presence and invisibly extend your communications power, all under your own logo.

On meeting day, our dedicated event team is there with you to facilitate every aspect of your program. A Birchwood Group producer directs the event, and a professional moderator interacts with your presenter(s) to ensure that the program runs smoothly. An expert host/stage manager co-presents and runs the technology throughout the entire meeting, and our live tech support team is on board to service your participants exclusively. We make certain that anyone who needs help is assisted immediately. Our goal is zero dropouts.

For added reliability, our back-up computers and meeting rooms feature redundant Internet access to guarantee connectivity throughout your event. You get results, not excuses.

To complete the picture, use our fully customizable pre- and/or post-event surveys to gather all key information. We then follow through with comprehensive on line reporting designed to fit your specific informational needs. These reports are accessible via the web with multiple levels of security and multiple levels of access allowing only the people you want to view what you want. You can also download these reports into Excel with the touch of a button!
There you have it - our complete turnkey service for medical meetings on the Internet.

Although MEDPresent is a standalone product, it was designed to closely integrate with MEDBroadcast, our meeting archive solution, and MEDForum, our message board community. Either way, MEDPresent is a great way to reach a diversified global audience.

MEDPresent a great way to hold your next meeting!  Let our expertise work for you…On the Net.
