We’d like to welcome our newest guest blogger, Maneesh Juneja. His speciality is in Digital Health. Here is a little more information about Maneesh.
As someone not afraid to ‘think the unthinkable’, Maneesh Juneja has recently delivered a talk in the UK & USA, entitled, “Healthcare in the future: Will advancing technology make doctors unemployed?”. This triggered a debate on both sides of the Atlantic over Twitter. His bold thinking led him to the stage of TEDx StPeterPort earlier this year, where he talked about how Digital Health technologies could be used to make Guernsey the best place to live on Earth.
Based upon his extensive research into global trends, he has shared his provocative ideas on the potential of personal health data marketplaces at a recent event hosted by NESTA in London.
In 2012, he left the security of his career at GlaxoSmithKline, to set up his own consultancy, MJ Analytics. In the same year, Maneesh also founded the Health 2.0 London Chapter, which has since become the UK’s largest grassroots health tech community.
In a career spanning nearly 20 years, Maneesh 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. health insurance claims & European EHR databases at GSK R&D.
Even today, in addition to public speaking & consulting in Digital Health, he continues to work hands-on with ‘real world’ patient data for international clients.
Maneesh says “I have worked hard to build links with innovators around the world, particularly with Silicon Valley. I’m inspired by the innovation culture of Silicon Valley, and unlike many of my friends who have relocated there, I have decided to stay in London and do my best to bring elements of Silicon Valley’s culture to the UK.”
