Bringing a valuable blend of experience, skills, and proven market results, Steve Ambrose specializes in engaging with internal and external stakeholders to develop compelling thought leadership content—supporting sales, product, and go-to-market efforts in B2B (SaaS) and B2C environments. His more than 30 years across healthcare segments bridges clinical care, data, communications, education, and technology across multiple verticals in the health system.
His in-depth multimedia thought leadership content includes written, audio, and video engagements with healthcare luminaries and well-known key opinion leaders. Recently, his content contribution at Innovaccer, a $3.2B health cloud data technology leader, led a 151% YoY increase in site traffic and many qualified leads for their Best in KLAS data & analytics platform.
Steve also serves as strategic advisor for both Aimedis and Creative Design Group, in the capacity of marketing communications, growth marketing, and content strategy. He also developed the learning content and hosted the highly unique Walk The Ridge employee civility training solution for improving civility and communication—recommended by 94% of its business clients.
Here’s the type of content that I develop—and coordinate on—with company leaders and key stakeholders.
Because competitive target markets and commoditized solution segments require the type of thought leadership that differentiates, engages, and captures leads.

Steve made a huge impact during his time at Innovaccer. His thought leadership content helped lead a 151% year-over-year increase in inbound traffic to our company website. He helped launch the Innovation Accelerator Podcast and built an audience from zero to 30K+ listeners in a little more than a year; transformed content marketing by crafting and collaborating on some Innovaccer’s most successful white papers; improved the editorial quality of our social media and demand generation content; and worked with our leaders and SMEs, bringing a wealth of fantastic ideas to the table that helped elevate our content marketing.
I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
I highly recommend Steve for any role in B2B content marketing and healthcare. He consistently exceeded expectations in delivering high-quality multimedia materials (blogs, white papers, podcasts, vodcasts, videos) and meeting tight deadlines. Despite a heavy strategic workload, Steve went above and beyond by taking on additional projects and delivering excellent results.
His work has resulted in some of the most effective content we have published, from generating inbound traffic to form-fills and MQLs.
Steve will be a valuable asset to any organization. Highly recommended!
