Clinical Director and Founding Partner
Baltimore Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, USA Inc.

Over the past 10 years, Dr. Kanji and Dr Adeyinka with their Board has worked diligently to build BOR from a fledgling organization to the multi-disciplinary powerhouse it is today.

Originally from Toronto, Dr. Kanji attended the University of Toronto for undergraduate studies, where he was recognized in 2004 as one of the Top 40 Minds of the Past 40 Years. Dr. Kanji obtained his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Daemen College in Buffalo, NY before finishing post-Doctoral studies and clinical training at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

Shortly after graduating, Dr. Kanji teamed up Dr. Yinka Adepoju, the Founder and Director of Business Operations, and together, along with the help of key staff, were able to develop BOR’s current structure and operating climate.

As Clinical Director Dr. Ali's long-term ambition and vision has been to improve access to physical and psychological rehabilitation for those in need in the Mid-Atlantic region, while building patient census and a wholistic, best practice-focused continuum of care through a unique Rehabilitation-based system.

Early on, Dr. Ali D. Kanji realized that the combination and co-location of services acted synergistically to improve patient care, outcomes and prognosis while reducing healthcare costs.

BOR Rationale for Clinical and Business Models:

From CMS Manual:

  • Services for physical health and behavioral health (which includes mental health and substance use disorders) historically have been financed and delivered under separate systems. As a result, Medicaid enrollees with behavioral health conditions often find themselves interacting with multiple public and private agencies and receiving care from myriad providers funded from different sources.
  • Integrating physical and behavioral health has been shown to reduce fragmentation of services and promote patient-centered care for adults with depression and anxiety disorders.

Benefits of care integration, again according to the CMS Manual, include:

  1. Care coordination/care management
  2. Co-location
  3. Improved Screening and Referral to Treatment

A blog by Ali D. Kanji, DPT Introduction As a Physical Therapist practicing in Maryland for the past 12 years, I have been primary witness to the slowly shifting foundation and respective evolution of our profession. While we historically started off with roles similar to that of today’s Rehabilitation Technicians, Physical Therapists are now considered Direct Access clinicians with the capacity to treat patients without a direct Physician referral in every State in America.
