Dr Julie Eatock
Julie’s main area of research is discrete event simulation modelling, and she has applied this in many different areas including information systems and policing.
As a post-doctoral researcher in Brunel University London her interests tended towards healthcare and she has applied her skills in areas such as healthcare service provision, the impact of disruptive technology, and the cost-effectiveness of the entire Atrial Fibrillation treatment pathway.
She has recently taken a position in the NHS in the Strategy and Transformation Team of the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups (NWLCCCGs) as an Intelligence Analyst looking at how different projects will impact NHS services and costs. Taking this position has provided a different perspective on healthcare improvement projects, but has additionally allows her to employ her analytical skills on ‘real’ projects that will impact healthcare delivery.
Julie will present a brief outline of her simulation projects in healthcare from her time as an academic researcher, showing the different types of projects she has undertaken. She will then concentrate on her new role as an analyst working from inside the healthcare sector, and highlight the differences between the two perspectives, in terms of the types of projects, and the expectation of the outputs of the projects.
