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.
Juneja believes the products and services that will have the biggest impact on our health, will not come from healthcare, but from outside of healthcare. In 2022, he appeared in the Netflix docuseries, “The Future Of” sharing his thoughts on a future world where we could have 3D printed organs that are connected to the internet, and in 2021, whilst living with Long Covid, he delivered a virtual keynote at Health Datapalooza on how becoming a patient shaped his thinking as a futurist.
He currently looks at questions like: How will Generative AI, like ChatGPT, reshape our interactions with health data? How do we leverage real time streams of data from sensors monitoring our health 24/7 to predict early signs of illness? How can we link novel sources of health data together to power new algorithms in a manner that respects the rights of the patient?
Juneja 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. He has given 4 TEDx talks and has spoken around the world to leaders from organisations in multiple sectors. He believes that stories change ideas, and that the best stories leave us feeling excited, inspired and hopeful.
In 2012, Maneesh Juneja left the security of his career at GlaxoSmithKline, to immerse himself in the new world of Digital Health. In a career spanning over 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 real world databases at GlaxoSmithKline R&D.
