Our BHAG

Health care dollars are finite – just like any other consumable resource on earth. We must control our spending to ensure our national health care programs remain available to those who need them.

Predictions that Medicare will be insolvent by 2028 inspire our staff to create change. In 2015, Strategic made it our Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) to redefine health care as a sustainable resource and to protect the future of health care for generations to come.

Health care is as important to our nation as clean air and water and fixing the problem is the only solution. Strategic plays a role in supporting our health care ecosystem. So do you.

The foundation of Strategic’s business practices is the Quality Management System (QMS). Strategic is committed to meeting and frequently exceeding our customers’ expectations. This mandates that we get it right the first time, every time. Our systems and procedures assure that quality outcomes are well-defined, repeatable, measurable, and modifiable for continuous quality improvement.

ISO 9001:2008

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a global federation of organizations that develop, promote, and maintain standards for their respective products and services. Strategic is certified to ISO 9001:2008, a standard that can be broadly applied to service and manufacturing organizations alike.  To maintain this certification, Strategic’s QMS is annually audited and reviewed by ISO.

Strategic is rated at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Services, Maturity Level 3 (ML3). An appraisal at ML3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods.
