Disrupting Healthcare from the Ground Up

While loaded with jargon about exponential organizations, syntropic designs, and transformative purposes, the core concept is straightforward: We can collectively construct a better healthcare system by decentralizing innovation.

Niki Faldemolaei Michael Friebe, PhD

When it comes to industries ripe for disruption, healthcare tops the list. The bloated costs, inequitable access, and sick-care approach that diagnoses and subsequently treats symptoms of sick people rather than preventing illness have made this field a prime target for innovators exploring new models. And that's exactly what the "Transforming Healthcare" chapter delivers - a ground-up case study of using exponential thinking to revolutionize preventive care.

This chapter is part of a larger book that showcases how the exponential organization (ExO) framework pioneered by Salim Ismail, Peter Diamandis and a community of curators can be applied by small and medium enterprises and entrepreneurs, not just tech giants. By tapping into ExO principles like leveraging the crowd, using staff on-demand, and maximizing shared assets, a diverse group is catalyzing change.

At the heart of "Transforming Healthcare" is an ambitious investment fund focused on nurturing early startups centered around the "5P Future of Health" concept: Prevention, Prediction through analytics, Precision or personalized medicine, Participation of individuals, and Prolonged healthy lifespan. Rather than incrementally improving sick care, the fund aims to spark a parallel business ecosystem devoted to keeping people well.

Author Michael Friebe Ph.D. Chapter excerpt…

Exponential organization concepts and attributes combined with the Purpose Impact Pyramid [7] and Syntropic Enterprise principles were the starting point of the idea for the operational setup that began in early 2022. The goal of the Purpose Impact Pyramid is to highlight the need for the creation of products and services with the goal to achieve triple sustainability and profits to sustain the operation and venture combined with the consideration of the Planet and People. The guiding Purpose ensures the generation of a Positive Impact. 

Syntropy, the opposite of entropy, means to leave everything on Earth and for the creatures better! This is done by applying the laws inherent in nature to enterprise design, human coordination, accounting for value, enabling financial, physical, and developmental provisioning, and structuring the legal code of the enterprise [8].

As such a Syntropic Enterprise is building entirely new models of enterprise that make our existing exploitative extraction to extinction models obsolete. Transformation and intentional disruption - in our case moving from Sickcare to Health (and beyond) - needs new models and needs bold and novel setups also for investment funds.

Our fund idea, which is a start-up itself, is to ensure excitement and create awareness of the problem, and with that excitement, engage in the 5P topics. This should also help the potential future deal flow and draw entrepreneurs into the local innovation ecosystem.

What's refreshing is how this endeavor emerges from the grassroots level, powered by the passions of entrepreneurs, medical experts, academics, and local community stakeholders. There's no corporate top-down mandate but rather a philosophy that transformative healthcare solutions must bubble up from those closest to the problems.

The fund leverages the ExO mindset in clever ways to overcome limited resources. Design challenges engage citizens to crowdsource ideas. Mentorship programs and university partnerships provide talent pipelines. A focus on lean, pivotable prototypes and experiments aligns with the ethos of building innovative new models iteratively with community input.

A Focus on Metrics that Matter…

ExO Attributes/Methodology:

The fund applies Exponential Organization (ExO) principles to set up and run operations, with a central emphasis on a Massive Transformative Purpose (MTP) of moving from "sick care" to health. Other attributes used to form this unique fund are Community & Crowd, Staff on Demand, Leveraged Assets, Engagement, Interfaces, Experiments

  • 5P FoH IF:
    • Objective: Be recognized as a leading innovation and start-up supporter in the 5P space.

    • Objective: Invest in a minimum of 2 start-ups in personalized medicine in the first 18 months.
    • Key Results: Track a >10% increase in patient satisfaction using these personalized healthcare services.
  • Participation:
    • Objective: Organize at least 3 Innovation Design Challenges on dedicated 5P topics with universities/innovation communities in the first 18 months.
    • Key Results: Establish lasting partnerships with a minimum of 5 health and exponential innovation networks. Key Results: Identify >10 novel ideas and support 3 groups towards starting a company.
  • Prolonged Life:
    • Objective: Invest in projects focusing on healthy longevity and prolonged life.
    • Key Results: Measure the impact of supported start-ups on increasing the average healthy lifespan.

Ultimately, this is a story of dismantling conventional ways of operating and re-imaging healthcare delivery in a synergistic model that creates abundance by preventing illness in the first place. It's inspired by big, utopian thinkers like Buckminster Fuller's philosophy of solving global problems cooperatively.

While loaded with jargon about exponential organizations, syntropic designs, and transformative purposes, the core concept is straightforward: We can collectively construct a better healthcare system by decentralizing innovation. This community-driven case study proves it's possible when we apply ExO principles with deeply human intentions.

For readers interested in how to activate real-world change beyond theorics, "Transforming Healthcare" makes an inspiring read. It's a reminder that revolutions can begin at the ground level when communities align abundant mindsets with exponential actions.

ExO Angels have deep ties to solving for global challenges. In recent years, there has been an increased focus on decentralized forms of social organization. This shift is in part due to the growing body of evidence that decentralized systems are more effective at meeting the needs of their members. When power is decentralized, individuals are able to make decisions that are based on the needs of their community rather than the top 1%. This leads to more equitable and sustainable societies. 

One of the most important benefits of decentralized systems is that they give the female archetype a greater role in decision-making. When women are given sovereignty over their own communities, they are more likely to focus on the needs of their residents. This, in turn, leads to more sustainable and equitable societies. Decentralization is a powerful tool for promoting social justice and creating more livable communities. The time is now to embody the divine balance of nature's law.
