Checkit appoints UK and EU thought leader as non-executive director
One of the UK’s most celebrated technology leaders, Rachel Neaman, has joined Checkit as non-executive director to support the Cambridge company’s continuing growth.
Her extensive experience in the digital transformation of public and health services – having led initiatives with both the European Union and Department of Health – is a key factor in the appointment.
Checkit is expanding the provision of Work Management and Automated Monitoring solutions to clinicians, scientists and support staff within hospitals and other healthcare settings.
Neaman said: “With healthcare equipment and treatments becoming ever-more sophisticated, an increasingly ageing population, and costs spiralling out of control, the health and social care system is at a turning point.
“Checkit’s products make use of the latest technologies to improve efficiency, quality, safety and patient outcomes in a way that is affordable, scalable and easy to implement.
“As digitally-enabled care becomes a priority for the NHS, Checkit’s products provide a low-cost, high-impact solution with tangible benefits.”
Neaman is the former CEO of two not-for-profit organisations. Her current roles include running her own independent consultancy, Neaman Consulting Ltd, and advisory board positions for the Campaign for Social Science, DigitalHealth.London and Digital Leaders.
She is also strategy adviser for DigitalAgenda, a mentor for PUBLIC’s GovStart programme, and a leadership coach.
