James Strader, CEO
Physicians are in the cross hairs of a dramatic convergence in healthcare today. Innovations to decrease the cost of healthcare, utilize mobile and other technologies and improve patient outcomes are exploding. Regulators and payers are intent on driving some of those same innovations while responding to others with expansive rules and regulations. As a result, physicians find themselves facing unprecedented compliance demands on their practices. For example, they are under increasing pressure to ensure that medications they prescribe, particularly opioids, are medically necessary and justify their case management. Seeing a glaring opportunity, Dr. James Strader introduced Safe Harbor Compliance and Clinical Services to bring forth enhanced compliance methods to physicians to help them practice medicine and treat patients suffering from pain and other chronic conditions more effectively. Every Safe Harbor professional understands the importance of meeting all applicable regulations, recognizing it is adherence to proven standards that ultimately maintains and improves the quality of healthcare.
Dr. Strader, a proven healthcare innovator, was certain toxicology screening and confirmations could improve case management and regulatory compliance. Through his organization he wanted to demonstrate to physicians that they can practice medicine with more confidence while ensuring they are doing their part to address major societal concerns about abuse and diversion of prescription medications. Describing the company’s motto, Dr. Strader adds, “I emphasized compliance as a key element of our business from the beginning, and my intention is always to go beyond the necessary when it comes to compliance.” Their leadership is committed to ensuring Safe Harbor companies continually meet or exceed all federal and state regulations and understand the dynamics of delivering quality products and services in their respective healthcare environments. The Company’s innovative concepts are backed by rigorous, reliable research with published outcomes.

Safe Harbor offers effectual business consulting services—including planning, management, development and compliance consulting—to the healthcare companies it owns and develops nationwide.

Every Safe Harbor professional understands the importance of meeting all applicable regulations, recognizing it is adherence to proven standards that ultimately maintains and improves the quality of healthcare.
