Silicon Valley (SV)

Healthcare Leaders CEO Group

2nd Tuesday of the month from | 8:30 – 11:30 am  | Mountain View, CA

Upcoming ZOOM Meeting

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Opening Discussion Topic:

COVID’s Shadow Pandemic: Behavioral Health Disorders

The statistics are staggering. In August, the CDC Morbidity & Mortality Weekly reported these upticks from June:

  • Nearly a third of adults are dealing with an anxiety and/or depressive disorder.
  • 75% of 18-24 year-olds and 52% of 25-44 year olds report at least one mental and/or substance adverse behavioral health symptom
  • And at 10.7%, suicidal ideation is now as common as diabetes among adults.
  • And for America’s essential workers, the percentages range from 1.7x higher for anxiety and/or depression to 3.2x higher for increased substance use, and 4.1x higher for suicidal ideation.

During our Group Discussion, we’ll look to hear your Best Practices for helping your team and yourself stay upbeat and engaged in month seven of COVID – and how you recognize the signs (and what to do) when they aren’t.  As well as, any other Issues you’d like the Group’s Feedback on.

Then, our Featured Guest Member Dave Haddick, CEO of PSYCHeANALYTICS, will demonstrate how their “Behavioral Health StethoscopeTM” triage tool for universal behavioral health screening enables all primary care clinicians to assess their patients’ psychosocial and behavioral health before their clinical visits (via a phone-text service). Particularly since COVID has made Healthcare Disparities an issue of national concern, each patient’s response illuminates treatable conditions frequently obscured by a patient’s poor health literacy, reticence or cultural barriers, or unconscious bias. Dave’s ask of the Group: how to quickly get their BH StethoscopeTM (reimbursable as a “brief emotional/behavioral assessment” under two CPT codes) into the hands of more clinicians before the end of the year – while they’re offering it at no charge!

Dave, long before founding PSYCHeANALYTICS, built an impressive career as a serial entrepreneur and developer of patented technology, including an electronic charting system for UCSF that enabled patients to be matched at the point-of-care to clinical trials. His expertise in developing diagnostic interfaces, coupled with his deep interest in behavioral health, led Dave to develop the Behavioral Health StethoscopeTM as a clinical behavioral health assessment and psychosocial analysis solution that delivers a personalized recommendation report.
