Claudia Martinez

Health Policy Fellow

I am currently a Health Policy Fellow at Reform and work on a project basis. I joined the organisation as Research Manager in November 2018 with an interest in healthcare policy, digital innovation and social care.

Prior to joining Reform I was a Senior Analyst at the Research & Innovation Department at Centra - the technology and care & support arm of Clarion Housing Group. In this role I focused on delivering Centra’s innovation programme, leading on the evaluation and integration of cutting-edge assistive technologies. I was also involved in strategic research projects, including assessing the impact of the digital switchover on housing providers, and evaluating the effect of AI-powered monitoring technologies on people’s health and wellbeing outcomes. I am passionate about “technology for good’’ and its potential to deliver transformative change in public service delivery.

I also worked as a management consultant in the mining and metals industry in Chile and as a researcher at a London-based social impact agency. I have an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Chile and MSc in Politics and Globalisation from King’s College London.

In my spare time I like to travel, practise yoga, and go to the theatre. I also volunteer at a community garden in East London a couple of weekends a month.

My favourite Reformer is… Professor Daniel Kahneman for his ground-breaking research on heuristics, nudging and rational choice.

#Reformdigitalhealth conference 2019

On 5th June 2019, Reform held its #reformdigitalhealth 2019 conference, 'Unlocking the promise of digital health'. It explored what we can learn from failures in digital health, getting the implementation right and reimagining the future of healthcare. 

The event brought together a range of voices including patients, public service leaders, businesses and future thinkers.
