Speaking about her win Julie said, “It is fantastic for digital health to be recognised amongst all these other exciting areas of innovation. We’ve come a long way in a short time and it’s a privilege to be part of this incredible journey to bring digital health to patients and health professionals.”
Charles Lowe, Our Mobile Health Associate and Managing Director of Digital Health And Care Alliance (DHACA) added, “Julie is a most impressive innovator and visionary. She spotted the opportunity before others to establish an mHealth assessment organisation, set it up and secured her first customers extremely rapidly. From this position of strength she has maintained her influence on the assessment process, collaborating with, and influencing, the NHS team established to decide which apps they will support as well as playing an important role influencing EU mHealth app assessment guidelines. Her work has been well rewarded of late with a string of contract wins, including one that will put excellent Our Mobile Health-assessed mHealth apps on GPs’ desktops at more than 4000 practices in England. Congratulations to her for a richly-deserved success.”
