Leading the Conversation: New Models for Addressing Mental Health

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.

Leading the Conversation: Value Based Care

Medical Alley: Leading the Conversation in Value Based Care gathers leaders from healthcare delivery, payment, and technology to discuss and debate one of the most critical issues to improving the United State's health care system: value based care.

The need for change is established and the barriers to change have been discussed, debated, and dissented for years.

Value in healthcare has often been defined as outcomes for a given unit of cost. This simple on face concept has driven thousands of discussions, debates, and business decisions with the goal of improving value for the healthcare customer (AKA, the patient, the consumer). The passage of the Affordable Care Act was supposed to presage the shift from volume to value in the U.S. but given the discussions we all continue to have it is not clear if we have made progress.
