Powering the Future of Health Through Media.

We are a full-service media agency, and regulatory experts with health-specific proprietary and syndicated tools to power data-driven, strategic campaigns.

Here's how we're different:

We Know Healthcare: Decades of health and wellness experience across more than 60 brands speaks for itself.

The Full Package: Planning, investment, and analytics across all channels and verticals. Full-spectrum HCP and DTC experience to boot.

Journey-Focused: We have the tools and resources to map out patient and healthcare provider journeys, and deliver media touchpoints to increase awareness and adoption.

Performance Obsessed: We engage with decisiveness and action to drive delivery, performance, value, and prediction—always.

Compliance Experts:  Our fully-certified team of HIPAA and regulatory specialists help you navigate the ever-changing complexities of this space.

Experience Matters.

KSM’s healthcare experience is as deep as it is wide. We have applied our skills to over 60 major brands across every subcategory: OTC and DTC pharmaceuticals, healthcare device makers, hospital networks, healthcare providers, insurers, and wellness-related brands—we've touched it all.

Our insights into patients and physicians have been honed over the years; in doing so, we’ve gained the experience to understand how to navigate the complex healthcare industry while maintaining creativity, customization, and innovation.


Smart Solutions + Smart Data

Too many agencies take a disjointed and siloed approach to media. At KSM, we demand better. We're media-agnostic, data-driven, and consumer-centric. Our work revolves around three integrated areas of service:

Strategy & Planning: Finds insights into your business goals, markets, and consumer journey, and transforms them into a media plan with KPIs that align with your business goals.

Investment Solutions: We don't believe in "traditional" and "digital" media. It's all integrated media buys that deliver on campaign objectives and business goals.

Analytics & Insights: Ongoing tracking and reporting allows our team to provide optimization recommendations and identification of opportunities, mid-campaign.
