A Call to Action for Healthcare Marketers: The Past, Present, and Future of Digital Advertising Targeting and Privacy

Google and Apple continue to tout their plans for diminishing the ability of advertisers to track online audiences with third-party cookies and device identifiers. While this has an effect on almost everyone in the advertising ecosystem, publishers, and subsequently healthcare marketers, are feeling it the most as without it their traditional business model is put at risk. In this presentation, DeepIntent CRO Greg Smith, who developed the first cookie targeting solution (22 years ago) and spearheads DeepIntent’s transition to a cookie-less world, will discuss the future of programmatic for healthcare marketers and publishers and why publisher direct relationships along with Universal IDs will be important for the future of the industry.
