Medical Alley: Leading the Conversation toward New Models for Addressing Mental Health gathers leaders from healthcare delivery, payment, and technology to discuss and debate one of the most critical and underrepresented healthcare issues: mental health.

The status quo isn’t meeting current needs, this is well-established, and the barriers to change have been discussed, debated, and dissected for years. The fundamental problem remains the unchanged: In the US alone, 44 million people experience mental illness every year and 10 million of them will experience a serious mental illness, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, yet 60 percent of those individuals will not receive treatment. The burdens of social stigma, access to treatment, and even lack of good treatment options for certain illnesses makes mental health one of the largest crises facing the US and the world.

That debate will not rehashed; there is too much at stake to continue with business as usual. Instead there will be in-depth discussion of ideas that have shown efficacy in the real world and innovators making a real difference, so you can learn from their successes and struggles. Technology, care models, payment, and policy will be examined for a rich discussion on this complex, multi-faceted healthcare challenge.

Set in Medical Alley, the global epicenter for health innovation and care, Leading the Conversation toward New Models for Addressing Mental Health will consist of a curated set of discussions with thought leaders from across healthcare. Attendees will see a spirited and challenging discussion with senior leaders from across healthcare. By the end of the day, you will be more informed, more connected, and more prepared to make an impact.

Capital is hard, innovation is hard, success is hard. That is why healthcare startups today are increasingly scrappy – focused on cost effective innovation, minimizing burn, and maximizing output. Hear from a panel of your peers on creative ways to advance a healthcare venture efficiently. Topics like virtual teams, non-dilutive financing, international partnership, and more will be discussed. And as a peer to peer program you are invited to share your best practices for scrappy innovation.
