York Region Public Health had long offered free health services to residents of York Region, but the public barely used the services because it had no idea who York Region Public Health was or what the division did. The healthcare provider was internally fragmented – four departments ran independently of each other, with inconsistent messaging and visual DNA, confusing the public and rendering YRPH invisible.

Catalina Health provides big pharma companies with a very targeted approach to reach their exclusive audience. Catalina Health targets health consumers at the pharmacy level, so they can encourage them to adhere to their medication. 

Big pharma can also cross promote by targeting health consumers (for example) that suffer from a heart condition with a new and improved prescription.

Consumer Packaged Goods can cross promote at the pharmacy level by promoting low fat snacks to those with heart conditions.

Catalina Health has the data and insights so that brands can pin point their marketing. You can’t get better targeting.


Market research confirmed that the Catalina Health Resource (CHR) 
brand is perceived as dated and irrelevant.


The audience clearly wants Catalina to:

  • Be more innovative

  • Improve its technology

  • Enhance overall value

  • Become more consultative

Here’s how they feel about your brand:

… some messages are getting stale…

… lack ‘attention-gettingness’…

… kind of static and boring…

… look is too subdued and should be jazzed up…

… some of it feels antiquated…


This rebrand positioned Catalina Health as a knowledgeable guide 
ready to lead clients down the path of discovery and enlightenment 
to help them engage brilliantly with health consumers. 
It evokes powerful feelings of trust, wisdom, insight and the 
promise of good things to come.

What make this concept especially compelling is the symbiotic relationship between things created in nature and those made 
by man. The man-made lights make the path through the dim woods more visible. Catalina Health can draw the same parallel. Utilizing 
a man-made database with over 150 million household IDs, Catalina provides illuminating insights into health consumers that enables highly-personalized messaging to spark positive changes in 
human behavior.
