No World Borders advises clients regarding disruptive regulations and disruptive technology in health care. We are a team of nationally recognized experts, published authors, regulatory and policy advisors and health IT people who have worked in care delivery, health plans and for the U.S. Government. We have a growing expert witness practice because of our in-depth knowledge of regulatory and resulting economic issues.
Our company name springs from the idea that we support borderless health care and is inspired by Complexity Theory and Adaptive Systems in economics. Complex systems typically have fuzzy boundaries. The “borders” we speak of are the silos in the U.S. healthcare system. Therefore, we believe that disruptive regulations and global events in healthcare mean that in many cases, traditional ways of “getting our heads round the problem” are no longer appropriate. We provide an independent advisory service to help our clients improve their outcomes and find strategic advantages.
We’ve been covered in The Wall Street Journal, and our founder’s articles have been published in Healthcare IT News, Gov Health IT, Mobile Health News, Financial Health News, Healthcare Financial Management Associations Strategic Financial Planning Newsletter.
