Opening Discussion Topic:
The statistics are staggering. In August, the CDC Morbidity & Mortality Weekly reported these upticks from June:
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.
Our Silicon Valley Healthcare Round Table meets on the 2nd Tuessday of each month. We have been meeting via ZOOM since April, and look forward to meeting again in person – once we can do so safely, hopefully early in the New Year.
