She has served as Chief Medical Officer, St. Anthony North Health Campus (Westminster, Colo.), started her own successful medical practice early in her career, has spent time as a management consultant, and served as president of Rose Medical Group in Denver, a 680 physician PHO/MSO, for twelve years.

Dr. Halee Fischer-Wright has both the diagnosis and prescription for what ails American health care.

--Daniel H. Pink, Author of DRIVE and TO SELL IS HUMAN

A highly personal account, conveyed through storytelling that is both effective and accessible. Back to Balance is an insightful and delightful read describing the critical need for enhancing the art of medicine in providing health care to the nation.

--James L. Madara, MD, CEO, American Medical Association

Similar to Zappos, Back to Balance lays out a plan for businesses to involve the whole human; great insights into bringing the humanity back to business.

--Tony Hsieh, CEO, and New York Times bestselling author of DELIVERING HAPPINESS

Halee Fischer-Wright beautifully weaves together compelling stories, powerful evidence, and provocative insights in a book that's a joy to read. As a communication advisor I've watched health care leaders struggle to articulate what's wrong with medicine today and how to solve those challenges. Back to Balance clearly explains how art, science, and business all play a role in reimagining a health care system that reflects that highest expression of our talents.

--Carmine Gallo, author of TALK LIKE TED and THE STORYTELLER'S SECRET

Halee Fischer-Wright has made common sense transformational! Through a series a personal stories, popular culture examples, and rock solid logic, Dr. Fischer-Wright reminds us that we do hold the power to transform health care delivery, if we would reestablish in medicine some basic, commonsense principles and a healthy relationship between art, science, and business. Her approach is workable at every level--from policy to practice. This book is not another esoteric treatise but a straightforward route to providing greater value to the patients we serve.

--H. Stephen Lieber, CAE, President and CEO, HIMSS

In this timely, astute, and pivotal discussion, the author ... makes great use of pop culture, tying together Marcus Welby, M.D. and Star Trek references to Converse high top sneakers and the novels of Michael Crichton. She also employs a keen sense of humor throughout, which keeps the narrative grounded yet accessible and flexible, and concludes with a smart, multi-pronged strategy.
