Press releases should be written in a standard format with the following guidelines:
- MEDHOST name as the press release owner should be clearly defined.
- If MEDHOST is releasing the press release, ensure that the header text begins with MEDHOST name.
- Example: MEDHOST Solutions To Be Implemented At <Company Name> NOT <Company Name> to Implement MEDHOST Solutions Across Facilities
- Publicly traded company press release need approvals sent to Newswire directly from the organization (email@example.com (CC: firstname.lastname@example.org)).
- On rare occasions, newswire will ask to fill out a legal authorization form from MEDHOST.
- Release date should be clearly stated.
- Header and subheader should be used to tell readers about the content of the release.
- The first paragraph should be used to summarize the most important points of the release.
- Use images and links as needed.
- Choose geographical locations of the release wisely to enhance impact.
- The MEDHOST media contact should be stated at the end of the press release.
- Standard boilerplate language should be included at the end.
- If we mention another organization, we should provide their boilerplate language too following MEDHOST boilerplate if available but it is not necessary.
- The press release should be ideally between 200-300 words.
