SKYGEN USA Names Amendola Communications Its Public Relations Agency of Record

Initial PR program leads to agency managing the national launch of new umbrella brand and reinvigorated company brands

Amendola Communications, a nationally recognized and award-winning public relations, content creation and marketing firm specializing in healthcare and health information technology (HIT), today announced it has been named as the public relations and content marketing agency of record for SKYGEN USA.

The agency was given the nod after successfully completing a six-month content marketing/pr program that saw it develop and place industry thought leadership articles, how-to articles, blog posts, case studies and other materials on behalf of the individual organizations that now make up SKYGEN USA. In its new role as agency of record, Amendola Communications helped launch the SKYGEN USA brand and will support the individual companies with a comprehensive national and trade media relations program. The agency will also provide ongoing strategic counsel on messaging as well as support for analyst relations, speaker opportunities and award nominations while continuing to create content.

“The initial public relations program was a success in our eyes,” said Christine Rudella, Director of Marketing for SKYGEN USA. “It was clear from the start that Amendola Communications understands healthcare and what drives the payer market, and they were able to help us articulate our expertise in a compelling way. Our growth plans are extremely aggressive so we needed an agency that could keep up.”

The Mequon, Wisconsin-based SKYGEN USA brand was launched in May 2015 to create opportunities for health payers as they face the challenges of the constantly shifting landscape of health insurance in the 21st Century. Companies under the SKYGEN USA umbrella are renowned leaders in their respective markets, including Wonderbox Technologies, Scion Dental, Vestica Healthcare, American Therapy Administrators and Ocular Benefits. The new powerhouse brand offers shared resources, synergies and integration to deliver heightened value to healthcare organizations including payers, providers, managed care organizations and delivery systems such as Accountable Care Organizations. SKYGEN USA recently announced the creation of Hylis Pharmacy Solutions, a leading-edge analytics company focused on bringing technology-driven intelligence to health plan sponsors, and plans to add additional organizations to its family of companies in the future.

The SKYGEN USA family of companies can help them overcome those challenges, putting them in a position to take advantage of new opportunities and grow their membership while significantly reducing the cost of delivering those benefits. We are looking forward to helping them bring that story to their customers and prospects.”
