Maneesh Juneja is a Digital Health Futurist who explores the convergence of emerging technologies to see how they can make the world a healthier and happier place. He looks at these technologies in the context of socio-cultural, political and economic trends, helping organisations around the world to think differently about the future.
He believes the products and services that will have the biggest impact on our health, will not come from healthcare, but from outside of healthcare.
He is passionate about ensuring that the choices we make in society result in a better future, not just for the privileged few, but for everyone. How might we use technology to reduce social inequalities in health? Many of the new technologies require a certain level of digital literacy, so how do we ensure that in addition to digital literacy, the general public have enough information to be able to make informed choices when using these new products and services.
In 2012, Maneesh left the security of his career at GlaxoSmithKline, to immerse himself in the new world of Digital Health. In a career spanning 20 years, he has worked with data to improve decision-making across a number of industries. From supporting the Whitehall study at University College London, managing the Tesco database at DunnHumby, and most recently, working with the world’s largest U.S. & European patient databases at GlaxoSmithKline R&D.
