The Story:

New York Startup Finds the Right Algorithm for Mental Health as seen in FORTUNE reported by Dan Primacy

Quartet Health wants to make mental health parity a reality.

Our Expert Opinion:

“If I was going to choose the single biggest shift that is going to impact upon healthcare in the next decade, it is the changing nature of the contract between citizens and professionals. Citizens are now more informed, they have access to the internet, to information, to data. Through the consumer movement, people’s attitude towards consultation and services has changed.”

– Matthew Patrick, CEO of the South London and Maudsley Foundation Trust (SLaM)

A PROJECT 375 Perspective:

This is just the tip of the iceberg in the utilization of all the data produced from wearables, health monitors and platforms. Giving health practitioners the ability to evaluate patients with various health metrics and feedback from everyday life can paint a clearer picture of what might be causing aliments and help proactively diagnosis and chart a more complete course of action. Wearables and health monitoring are hot sectors, but there is a divide between those who have and own the data and those who can access and use that data in the most beneficial way. This platform in mental health could close that gap and revolutionize the medical industry.

– Bouker Pool, Operating Partner Alchemy Global, PROJECT 375 Ambassador

THE CONVERSATION

Let’s Talk About It:

We are so excited to bring you our latest installment of REAL CHATS. This week’s story is from Stephen McDonnell.

Stephen McDonnell lives in northern England. He has survived mental illness since the age of three. He is now in his 42nd year of his life journey and using his experiences as a way to help others.

PROJECT 375: Would you rather go to the theatre or a movie? Why?

Stephen McDonnell: Oh the theatre darling of course! What else? I love movies, I do – especially sci-fi and psychological thrillers, but going to a cinema really pees me off.

Find this installment of REAL CHATS here.
