Internal medicine resident passionate about clinical operations that foster person-centered, high quality care; particular interests in chronic disease management, oncology, information technology, costs of care, and value of care.
David Mou is a psychiatry resident at Massachusetts General Hospital and McLean Hospital, and he is interested in combining the rigor of academic medicine with the speed of entrepreneurship to revolutionize mental healthcare. Previously, he founded and sold a funded medical education company as a medical student, and he worked at Fidelity Biosciences (a biotech VC). During residency, he founded Valera Health, a funded mental health startup company that combines smartphone technology and high quality mental health delivery to promote preventative psychiatry. By collecting data on how many steps patients take, how many hours they sleep, how many text messages they send per week, among other variables, the Valera app can detect when a patient is clinically worsening, and then alert case managers and therapists as needed. David won the 2015 Partners Healthcare Connected Health Startup Competition as well as First Prize at the 2016 US China Health Summit Innovation Competition.
David received his BA in neurobiology from Harvard, where he was awarded the Hoope's prize, the top prize for research. He spent a year in Paris after college to continue his neuroscience research, and returned to earn a joint MD MBA from Harvard. He is a 2011 Soros Fellow, a Gates Scholar, and a member of the Horatio Alger Association and the Academy of Achievement. He made LinkedIn's top 10 under 35 for Healthcare in 2016. He has published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
