What Our Clients Say

"I am truly appreciative for the work of Dr. Barbara Duffy and her team at the Healthcare Innovation Institute which through the use of their "Comprehensive Inquiry Tool" and several conference phone calls, provided assessment information for Heal2BFree. I expect that this type of inquiry would be useful to many other healthcare startups. It has truly been a pleasure for me to work with the Healthcare Innovation Institute, which I believe will serve a very important consulting role in 2018 for Heal2BFree, as we seek to help bring about positive and impactful transformative changes in United States Healthcare Delivery to markedly improve outcomes, radically lower costs, and eradicate disparities."

Edward Joseph James, MD, MBA Founder, Heal2BFree
