Patrick Colletti

At the peak of the dot.com days, Patrick Colletti joined a startup whose Red-Bull-swigging, flip-flop culture quickly faltered, leading to lay-offs, substantial debt, and near collapse. From this, Patrick was appointed President, and he and a partner led a turn-around which included negotiating debt, re-focusing the product, and of course, wearing many hats simultaneously.

The company that emerged, Net Health Systems, Inc., is focused on healing the seven million people in the US with chronic, life-threatening, non-healing wounds often associated with Diabetes. Today, the company’s web-based Electronic Health Record (EHR), WoundExpert®, facilitates over three million patient treatments and supports reimbursement for $1 billion in services annually.

The company has grown by more than 40% for each of its nine consecutive years. Its fast growth and culture have been lauded in Inc. Magazine, BusinessWeek, TEQ, as well as local, regional, and healthcare industry publications. In 2010, Patrick received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, representing Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New York regions.

As President of Net Health, Patrick directs and executes business strategy with direct oversight of sales, marketing, administration, and finance. He is passionate about the confluence of creativity, strength-based alignment, and innovation as a spring-board to create compelling culture.

Patrick’s previous experience includes work with Dorland’s Data Networks and American Lawyer Media, where he was part of the team that launched the online marketplace and content portal, now known as LAW.com. He has served on the boards of the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Advanced Vital Services, and taught for five years as an Associate Professor of Marketing at Point Park University.

Patrick’s formative years were spent skateboarding; his first foray into business was an unprofitable paper route. He earned BAs in Philosophy and Marketing from Muskingum University, and married his sweetheart, Jennifer. Their family now includes Hudson (6), Andrew (4) and Chessie, their pup.
