ABOUT

With a single bright idea — to start a firm based on pure collaboration — Speire Healthcare Strategies was born. Our goal is to collaborate with our clients, our team, and each other. We believe we are better together, by bringing together our combined federal, state, and private sector experience we provide our clients with a holistic view of, and thoughtful insights into, the healthcare industry and its complexities.

Our years of working with federal and state government agencies and private sector companies give us national insights with local perspective. To help maintain that blend we currently work with government and private sector clients advising on program operations and emerging policy. We continue to have a strong presence in Washington, D.C., but chose to base our firm in Nashville, Tennessee a thriving healthcare community.

Each of us brings a wealth of experience and deep relationships across the industry. Our combined team has experience that includes, Medicaid, health insurance marketplaces, managed care, strategy and compliance, health reform, value-based purchasing, government programs and operations, and related matters. All of our partners have served as government and private sector executives, holding executive roles in Medicaid agencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and within top tier management consulting firms. Members of our team have consistently worked across the public and private sector on a variety of initiatives, including as a current commissioner for the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) and formerly in leadership with the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD). Every project is an opportunity for us to bring our collective experience together to find the best solution for our clients.

We built a firm that reflects us, built on a foundation of collaboration, integrity and experience.
