Julia Ross, Predict X 


Before joining PredictX 8 years ago, my experience included a wealth of Board level operational and clinical posts across large-scale complex health and social care organisations in the public, private and voluntary sector. I worked for 10 years as Director of Social Services and CE of a PCT in London and spent 5 years on policy work with the Department of Health. My networks include the Association of Directors of Social Services (ADASS), Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, the Acute Frailty Network National Board and both ADASS Older People’s and Technology Networks. I believe passionately in making a difference in the lives of people using health and social care services through more effective use of Big Data and analytical solutions.

As Chief Strategist for Care and Health, I lead the strategic delivery of SaaS with integrated data analytical solutions to the NHS and Councils.

What you will bring to the Health & Social Care Programme and the Health & Social Care Programme: 

Over the past three years, I have worked with the techUK Council to promote and grow the development of our work programme including the creation of the Integrated Services Working Group with NHS Digital which I jointly chair. I am delighted to have contributed to this growth and want to see this accelerating as the industry continues to grow its influence on shaping policy direction, improving the adoption of new technology and new business opportunities. This means making better use of our considerable collective expertise, especially in relation to SMEs. I am particularly skilled in building partnerships across the public, private and third sectors and believe this is critical for future working across industry and government. I am a good communicator with growing social media skills and would like to see techUK communicate and play a stronger campaigning role. I have a good grounding in the politics of technology and crucially understand the complexity of the political and policy context both nationally and locally.

I will bring clarity and purpose to techUK over the next three years through my determination to improve the world of health and social care for patients and service users by improving care through better data.
