Combating fraud in digital marketing

Marketing isn’t working for a lot of people, and CMOs and marketers are often left to wonder which half of their ads will work, says MediaMath.These assertions were outlined in a new whitepaper titled “Supply Chain Excellence”, which looks at longstanding problems stemming from fraud and the lack of transparency in digital marketing.Wastage of time, budgetSpecifically, a misaligned supply strategy can lead to wasted time and budget, a lack of quality and a higher risk of fraud.Specifically, advertisers often do not know how much of their digital marketing spend is going to fees versus publishers. To make matters worse, every step down the supply chain is an opportunity for bad actors to sell fraudulent impressions, or for additional intermediaries who can take a bite out of an advertiser’s apple.Too often, marketers set up deals that they assume will provide higher quality inventory that will be curated to the performance goals of the clients. The data tells another story, however, says MediaMath, with brands that reach out directly to exchanges and publishers getting deals that vary wildly in quality.According to MediaMath, it consistently sees higher rates of sophisticated invalid traffic – including instances of fraud, on media purchased via PMPs (Private Marketplaces) compared to its Curated Market offering.Strategies that work betterTo succeed, MediaMath suggests that marketers should use markets instead of deal. Unsurprisingly, one suggestion is MediaMath’s Curated Market which pools the collective demand of brands and agencies purchasing through the platform to negotiate performant deals.The argument is that technology providers are in a much better position to monitor the performance of deals and compare it to the rest of the bid opportunities to protect marketers from fraud.MediaMath also suggests that brands work with a media agency that adds value.“Agencies can also pool the demand of multiple advertisers in negotiating deals and sharing deep industry expertise. Additionally, agencies can specialize in verticals and use cases for their clients and may be better positioned to access specialized publishers for their audience type and negotiate access to more relevant and exclusive data.”You can download the full white paper here (free registration).Further reading:Getting programmatic advertising to work in AsiaFinding success with your programmatic marketing campaignsMediaMath trains over 4,000 APAC marketers in programmatic Caption: Image credit: iStockphoto by Getty Images

T-Systems launches Healthcare Competency Centre to accelerate digital healthtech transformation in SEA

T-Systems, a provider and systems integrator of healthcare ICT solutions, today announced the launch of Healthcare Competency Centre (HCC). Aimed to showcase the latest SAP solutions and various ways that customers and patients will benefit from them, the HCC hopes to inspire customers on the various possibilities that ICT solutions can benefit healthcare providers.The HCC aims to help healthcare providers ride the emerging technology revolution to improve patient outcomes and at the same time achieve cost efficiency. With each country in Southeast Asia facing endless challenges on multiple fronts – whether that is the aging population issue, or long-term management and care of non-communicable diseases like heart disease and diabetes – the HCC looks to demonstrate how ICT solutions can sufficiently address the healthcare needs of the region, tailored for healthcare and localized for different countries.Located at T-Systems’ office in Singapore, the HCC offers healthcare providers with demonstrations and use cases of SAP solutions, coupled with emerging technology. These include leveraging best practices established among T-Systems’ existing customers to help broaden industry perspective on how to apply proven healthcare technology solutions more effectively, understand the feasibility of ICT applications and discover new ways of doing business.Customers will be able to test-drive these applications with their own data – effectively providing them with all the benefits of a proof of concept, and to experiment with how a full implementation would work, without the need to disrupt their own business processes.For more specific use cases, the HCC provides healthcare providers with a digital ‘sand-box’ to explore solutions in isolation from their production data. This provides customers with the opportunity to carry out stress-testing, “what-if” analysis, and configuration testing for new sites, all under the guidance of T-Systems’ subject matter experts (SMEs). Customers are also able to systematically measure improvements, such as time saved through process redesign. Devices such as tablets and wearables at the HCC are equipped with SAP solutions that can also be customized as per customers’ needs.“With the HCC, we are now able to guide customers first-hand through new possibilities in healthcare innovation -- in many cases with their own data -- to show how they can achieve better outcomes. These include helping them move to the cutting edge of digital healthcare, from assisting patient diagnoses with machine learning, to using IoT in patient recovery plans,” said Arkadiusz Czopor, Managing Director, T-Systems Asia South.Going forward, through partnerships with professional consulting firms, T-Systems aims to develop industry templates for IoT, billing and insurance at the HCC.

Talk to a Malaysian doctor while travelling abroad

In 2006, an estimated 11.9 million international travels were made by Malaysians, and this figure is anticipated to increase to 14.2 million in 2021. With traveling being one of the more popular activities enjoyed by Malaysians, falling sick would be an undesirable situation, especially those travelling to a foreign land.In addition to being away from their home country and unfamiliarity, there is also a possibility of language barrier and an unpredictable cost of getting a medical consultation. In medicine, good communication is key, ensuring that correct diagnoses will be made with the right medication dispensed.Tune Protect has recently partnered with DoctorOnCall.com.my, Malaysia's first telehealth service provider that offers online medical consultation with board-certified doctors via chat, phone call or video call. Through this collaboration, AirAsia Tune Protect Travel Protection policyholders will receive complimentary medical consultation services for free while travelling.DoctorOnCall is an online platform that provides medical consultation with more than 70 Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) registered doctors with valid Annual Practicing Certificate (APC). Patients will be able to speak to a doctor with regard to common ailments such as cough, flu, fever, skin conditions and consultation for long term disease management such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

In the event that the doctor prescribes any medications, domestic travelers will enjoy free medication delivery directly to their doorsteps. This is important as majority of medications for ailments such as diabetes, hypertension and migraine require a prescription."Now travelers can speak directly with a MMC-registered and APC-holder doctor regardless of where they are around the globe.
