Book highlights how transformational leaders can reach goals for better healthcare, health equity and meaningful social change
PITTSBURGH, PA–June 3, 2021—How to meet the many challenges facing healthcare today and better meet goals for improving healthcare, expanding access, and fostering social change, are highlighted in a new book, Refounder (May 25, 2021, Per Capita Publishing), written by leadership and organizational culture expert Patrick Colletti.
In his debut book, Colletti shares insights and experiences gained over two decades serving as president of Net Health and taking it from a small start-up to one of the top specialty EHR and analytics companies in the nation. With stories about well-known leaders, cities, and organizations, Colletti explores how society often reinvents for the better and reveals how individuals can assess what needs to be “refounded” in their own life.
“Refounders are visionaries that take a different approach, by reimagining existing structures and improving them so they better meet the needs of people today,” said Colletti. “Utilizing the raw materials of a company, culture or life, they transform them into something more meaningful.”
Using real-world examples, each chapter explores a refounding principle and expands on how to navigate problems, crisis, and difficult situations through the application of those principles. Readers can learn more about:
- Tackling Problem Zero: Understanding the practical problem that is threatening your organization’s survival (or lack of flourishing) and the steps needed to make it to the other side.
- Health Equity: How society has created vulnerable populations that are slipping through healthcare’s safety nets and what we can do about it as a society.
- Cultural Formation: Ways to create and develop a meaningful organizational culture built on a shared bigger purpose and reinforced by opportunities to be understood and challenged.
“We need resources that can help us transform our organizations and communities,” said Josh Pickus, Net Health’s CEO. “Patrick’s book Refounder does just that in a way that provides new insights that can lead to positive changes across our country. At Net Health, we are all grateful to Patrick for transforming his experiences building the Company into something that can serve an even larger purpose.”
