Pritesh works in the policy team where he focuses on how digital tools and technologies can improve health and care. He is particularly passionate about using evidence-based digital technology as an enabler to improve quality of care and outcomes while critically assessing buzzwords and technology as a silver bullet. Pritesh combines his understanding of technology with the broader picture of the essential ingredients needed for digital change to have an impact. This encompasses culture, unmet need, infrastructure, change management and knowledge all to improve quality, inequalities and outcomes.
Before joining the Fund, Pritesh led the innovation activity at the Royal College of General Practitioners encompassing system change, entrepreneurship, grassroots innovation and horizon-scanning. Before this he worked at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust helping to bring together clinicians and patients with research and technology to improve the care and outcomes of people with life-debilitating conditions such as heart failure.
