About Us


The Leading Health Care Consulting Firm

Strategic Management Services, LLC (Strategic Management) is a pioneer in helping the health care industry with timely and innovative regulatory compliance solutions.  As one of the few consulting companies focusing exclusively on the health care compliance industry, Strategic Management differentiates itself by its unique expertise, qualifications and people.

Driving Industry Innovation

Strategic Management was founded over 25 years ago by Richard Kusserow, the former Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  We were the first health care consulting firm to focus on corporate compliance and ethics initiatives for the health care industry – before the government had even issued any formal compliance program guidance documents for the industry.

Over the last 25 years, Strategic Management has assisted thousands of health care organizations with regulatory compliance services, such as the development of compliance program infrastructure, evaluation of compliance programs, standard of conduct development and reviews, compliance training programs, hotline setup and operations and issue resolution assistance.  While we continue to assist health care organizations with regulatory compliance services, our services have also expanded to include risk assessment and management, claims data analysis, assistance with the requirements of Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs), Independent Review Organization (IRO) duties, and litigation support, just to name a few.

Highly Qualified Experts

Strategic Management’s leaders and key personnel have worked both in the highest levels of private sector health care organizations and with the executive enforcement and regulatory agencies of the federal government.  Our staff includes senior level consultants from both industry and government, who are able to bring a broad scope and profound depth of knowledge and experience in regulatory enforcement and health care industry business and operations. This includes experience in federal government agencies such as U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), US Department of Treasury, Department of Justice, Department of Labor, Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as with private sector hospital systems, academic medical centers, long term care organizations, pharmaceutical companies, managed care organizations, and others.

Our blend of knowledge and experience of how health care works from both inside the government and from private sector health care companies puts Strategic Management in the unique position to anticipate the needs of the health care marketplace, garner the best resources, provide innovative solutions, and build critical relationships.
