“We’ll figure it out.”
This is a phrase that has oft been uttered in the conference rooms and offices at Strasasan. Healthcare as an industry may have an image of being old and staid, but as we have discovered, there are new opportunities every day for creative solutions to shine. We have relied heavily on our team’s creativity and innovation (well described in another blog post by Morgan Atkins) to develop new tools and products to serve our customers.
Hence, in the last quarter of 2017, we recognized that this phrase is an important part of our company culture, making it one of our core values.
Practical Tips for Maintaining a Growth Mindset in your Organization
Stratasan understands how paramount change is to progress. We strive to be trailblazers in the healthcare space, developing innovative tools and services that address our clients' growth goals. The best way we can effectively lead our clients and provide value is by innovative thinking that challenges the status quo. Our goal is to empower our customers with the strategies that will equip them to more effectively face a challenging and ever-evolving healthcare industry.
At the heart of innovation is the ability to reframe your perspective. Henry Ford once said "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." Often, the question itself limits what you think the possibilities are. If you have an open mind about the possibilities, you maximize your chances of building effective and unexpected solutions.

2017 has been a banner year for Stratasan on many fronts. We are approaching our seven year anniversary on May 18 and our team continues to adapt and evolve as we prepare for our next stages of growth.
Some of the notable internal occurrences from this past year include: two employees (Jason Haley, Tony Camarata) celebrated their six year Strataversary; three employees (Dan Foreman, Lee Ann Lambdin, Morgan Atkins) celebrated their five year Strataversary; one new product was released (Launch Pathway); four children were born and/or adopted; we moved into a new office on April 1; we held a crock pot competition (Scott Burns was named the champion); we had zero unscheduled downtime (thanks to Marcus Young and our fantastic Dev team!!); and ten new Stratanauts joined our team.

We are gearing up for The Society of Healthcare Strategy & Market Development’s annual conference (SHSMD Connections 2017). This will be our seventh consecutive year to participate and this year’s conference will be held in Orlando, FL, a city and state that is top of mind for us right now in the wake of Irma.
I've been reflecting back on how far Stratasan’s involvement in this conference has grown since our first year attending. Over time, we have increased in capacity, objectives, and number of participants.
SHSMD has always been the most important annual conference for Stratasan. Not only is it the biggest healthcare strategy conference nationwide, the speaker themes, trainings session topics, and attendees are all inline with our wheelhouse of expertise—healthcare marketing and strategic planning—which makes it the perfect opportunity for us to network and learn.

As I write this blog post, I am in the middle of a 36-hour (mostly) silent retreat detached from electronics. As someone who straddles the line between extrovert and introvert, opportunities like this are a welcome backdrop to my normal day-to-day.
This retreat has given me time to reflect on many things, including Stratasan’s six-year anniversary which we celebrated on May 18th (photos from the party shown below). As I consider all that has happened over the last six years, my thoughts continually circle back to our culture and how it has developed over time. From the outside, my co-Founder, Brian Dailey, and I are seemingly very different people. But, at our core, we value very similar things: a healthy intertwining of work and personal life; being present for the moment and the task at hand; helping and watching others grow even beyond where they thought they could; and finishing a job sometimes merely because we gave our word that we would.
