Quantellia's World Modeler™ software is shown at the United Nations, as part of the Forbes 400 annual conference
: In late May of 2013, Quantellia was approached by
Last Mile Health
to consider building a model that would help to analyze the scaling impacts of its revolutionary and effective approach to addressing childhood mortality in Liberia.
Said Last Mile Health's CEO and co-founder Raj Panjabi:
“As I was preparing my presentation for the United Nations at the Forbes 400 conference in June of 2013, I reached out to Quantellia to ask if they could help to build a decision model to analyze and illustrate the impact of Last Mile Health Front Line Health Workers on childhood mortality in Liberia. The modeling process, and subsequent video, has helped me open my eyes to my own business.
Our team displayed the video at the United Nations in a breakout session with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and several of the Forbes 400 in attendance.
In my opinion, a systems view is essential to understanding the impact of programs such as Last Mile Health. I believe that Quantellia has created a breakthrough technology that allows system modeling to be done rapidly and cost-effectively. This capability is an essential component of “factivism” : facts without systems understanding can only go so far.”
