Reboot Healthcare’s mission is to incubate clarity. Healthcare is complex and it’s easy to lose sight of both the big picture and the little details. We’re here to help bring healthcare’s challenges into focus and support efforts to reboot the healthcare system.
Read more about why we’re rebooting healthcare here.
for the public good
Reboot Healthcare is a public benefit corporation, often referred to as “B Corp”.
We have a special duty to perform work that benefits the public, making life a little better for us all. This status also requires that our benefit to society be measurable—the work we do has to have a real impact.
With public responsibility comes public reporting. Our mission and measurable impacts are reviewed and published according to state requirements.
Look for our first public benefit report on January 31, 2020
Public benefit corporation status gives us the flexibility to make smart investments in people and solutions, while freeing us to make decisions based on values that transcend profit.
This special status means we can host events like the Reboot Healthcare Summit without needing to own every good idea that comes from it. We foster an environment where people can develop and implement their own solutions, and do everything we can to spread the best solutions. We use the profits we make to invest in the most promising ideas and people as part of our mission to incubate the organizations bringing clarity to healthcare.
If we do what we’ve always done, we’ll get what we’ve always got.
Building better healthcare starts with rethinking assumptions, care models, and definitions of health.
TVs, phones, and planes aren’t what they used to be 20 years ago—by design. Healthcare needs a major redesign to keep up with both technology and the times.
Healthcare won’t magically evolve into something better. Thoughts need to be translated into action. Designs need to be implemented. We support rapid prototyping of alternatives, in order update and reboot healthcare.
Laura is an advocate for facing the structural problems of American healthcare squarely, rather than continuing to let the status quo profit while Americans suffer an extreme lack of coverage, outrageous levels of health disparities, and indefensible costs (that are a feature and not a bug) in the current healthcare business model.
Laura has been solving technical and operational problems in healthcare for 19 years, and has determined that radical innovation and solutions cannot be adopted inside the current system.
