“We are proud to work with Mesmerize to provide verification of their digital networks,” said Ken Shultz, senior vice president of audit services for the Alliance for Audited Media and POCMA board member. “The digital network audits represent another achievement in Mesmerize’s ongoing commitment to trust and transparency, which they have also demonstrated through print media audits.”
The audits confirmed the placement and functionality of digital screens throughout Mesmerize’s two networks in retail pharmacies and Point of Care locations such as physicians’ offices and Community Based Organizations. The process included both in-field and phone verification of digital assets in both networks as well as an analysis of the controls and processes in place for updating and maintaining records and ensuring accurate reporting. The networks were audited to verify Mesmerize’s adherence to industry standards including POCMA’s Verification and Validation Guidance, which is essential to achieving POCMA certification.
“Mesmerize is proud to announce network certification by the POCMA, for our in-office and pharmacy TV networks,” said Gregory Leibert, Mesmerize CEO. Mesmerize worked with AAM to achieve third-party assurances for all of our products, static and digital, thus solidifying Mesmerize’s position as an organization that represents trust, transparency, and compliance with the highest industry standards, as defined by the POCMA’s V&V Guidance. “
