Enrique Estrada, Senior Director Healthcare Industry Solutions, VMware
From his perspective with 25 years in the healthcare technology industry, Enrique Estrada, the new senior director of healthcare industry solutions at VMware, is impressed with how CIOs pivoted during the pandemic. As a former marine, he learned how it’s key to adapt and overcome; and that’s exactly what he saw CIOs do. In this episode of healthsystemCIO’s Partner Perspective Series, Anthony Guerra, editor-in-chief and founder, Estrada says patients should be at the center of everything, because ultimately, we are all patients. Estrada fell into healthcare early in his career, but because of how important it is, he would never leave it. He also sees more hope than many who say healthcare is technologically 10 to 20 years behind, instead, predicting healthcare is only a few years away from keeping pace with other industries.
