CONFERENCE OVERVIEW | MENTAL HEALTH IN THE AGE OF COVID-19

COVID-19 has been described from multiple perspectives: as a global pandemic of grief for the families and communities who have suffered loss, and a pandemic of burnout for the frontline workers managing the crisis. COVID-19 has also created challenges of mental health disparities affecting communities of color disproportionately: a recent analysis showed the Black community had the greatest change over time in anxiety while Native Americans had the highest change over time in suicidal ideation. Our April Medicine X Annual Conference will address these issues and more as we tackle Mental Health in the age of COVID-19.

COVID-19 has been described from multiple perspectives: as a global pandemic of grief for the families and communities who have suffered loss, and a pandemic of burnout for the frontline workers managing the crisis. COVID-19 has also created challenges of mental health disparities disproportionately affecting most of the vulnerable groups, especially displaced persons and minorities, all over the World.

Limited assess to healthcare, limited resources, and limited freedom of movement has triggered unprecedented changes in lives of millions. Mental health issues have become living experience for many. A recent analysis in the US, showed the Black community had the greatest change over time in anxiety while Native Americans had the highest change over time in suicidal ideation during the recent pandemic. Even harder impacted have been developing countries with less accessible and very limited resources in mental healthcare, leaving millions without care. Our April Medicine X Annual Conference will address these issues and more as we tackle Mental Health in the age of COVID-19.


At Medicine X | CHANGE we will meet the innovators who are disrupting health care throughout the globe. We will see the emerging technologies of today and learn how they will impact the health care we deliver and receive tomorrow.

We will explore the drivers of change through organizational leadership and creative collaboration outside of health care’s traditional silos.

We will be inspired by moonshot thinking and learn how to grow pockets of excellence and innovation to large-scale change. We will experience empathy and compassion. We will gain an understanding of the problems that matter most in health care.

Be ready to use what you learn at Medicine X to create a shared vision of collaborative change and participatory medicine of tomorrow.


THANK YOU

This May 19th Annual conference is organized with recommendations from an interprofessional advisory panel of designers, researchers, physicians, patients and communication experts in collaboration with Dr. Larry Chu, Professor of Anesthesiology, Stanford University School of Medicine and Executive Director of the Stanford Medicine X Program.

Medicine X | IDEO Design Challenge 2021 - May 18, 2021

Our iconic and legendary health care design event the Stanford Medicine X | IDEO Design Challenge is returning again for a once-in-a-lifetime patient-centered health care design-thinking experience. Stanford Medicine X is once again joining forces with Palo Alto-based firm IDEO to offer Medicine X attendees the opportunity to collaborate with ePatients, designers, researchers, technologists and health-care providers to spark new ideas for improving patient care.

"IDEO was an extraordinary experience. I met tons of new contacts, including entrepreneurs, physicians, investors. I was really impressed by this culture of support, creativity and change that Medicine X cultivates" — conference attendee

Health Privacy Policy: Offline/online

SESSION DESCRIPTION

Our privacy online and offline have fundamentally changed in the information age. Facebook, Google, Amazon, and many other internet companies have sought to monetize our personal and sometimes private information for corporate profit. What implications might this have for our personal health privacy? As our offline lives become more intertwined with our online identities, how will companies protect us from unwanted health privacy breaches? What role might legislation or government oversight play to ensure public trust?

eHealth reporter Mohana Ravindranath will moderate this panel of experts that includes Lucia Savage, Chief Privacy and regulatory Officer, Omada Health and Erik Perakslis, Rubenstein Fellow, Duke University.

PANEL

Mental Health in the age of COVID-19

SESSION DESCRIPTION

The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges for the global mental health community, leading a crisis with skyrocketing rates of people seeking help for anxiety and depression. Young people are struggling most with their mental health and lonliness or isolation are top concerns.

Stanford Brainstorm is an academic lab dedicated to mental health innovation and entrepreneurship. The lab is currently working on studying some of these issues and believes it can do so in an ethical and socially responsible manner by designing solutions that are based on scientific evidence, interdisciplinary, integrated inside and outside the traditional healthcare system, and scalable to millions at a time.

In this Medicine X | CHANGE session, moderator Jakub Bil will lead a panel discussion of Stanford Brainstorm lab members, as well as a Patient and Researcher, Cyrena Gawuga in a discussion on Mental Health in the Age of COVID-19.

PANEL

What can we learn from learning health networks?

SESSION DESCRIPTION

Online communities bring people with shared health conditions and medical knowledge together with the goal to improve lives. These networks of peer support on social media are a lifeline for many ePatients. Yet, along with these benefits come great risks. Health care organizations have largely failed to embrace community-generated data in an equitable and fair way. Nor have they studied or implemented practical knowledge from these networks in ways that meaningfully improve patient outcomes. Privacy abuse and medical misinformation are also threatening the existence of online peer support networks.

Could Learning Health Networks flip this narrative? Might this model offer a respected for patient communities in clinical care? During this session, you will learn about the current threats to patients who engage on social networks. This will guide us to frame the problems we intend to solve. We will then hear from the founders of a thriving Learning Health Network that started out of Cincinnati Children's Hospital that is run by patients, for patients.
