When Josh Gluck joined Pure Storage this past April, he arrived well-acquainted with the most pressing data-management issues affecting healthcare IT leaders today. He’d spent the previous two decades in hands-on leadership roles in the field, most recently as deputy CIO for Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City and, prior to that, as director of IT at New York Presbyterian Hospital. He continues to teach health policy and management at New York University. As Pure’s VP of global healthcare technology strategy, Gluck has wasted no time establishing himself as a go-to thought leader on everything having to do with, and made possible by, enterprise-level flash storage. He took our questions on flash and why it promises to remain a hot topic among healthcare IT leaders for many years to come.

Population health is absolutely something we want to target. To do that, we are using our archive of images that includes radiology, cardiovascular, interoperative and dermatology. For example, we’re looking at body composition—the amount of muscle, visceral fat and superficial fat. And common sense makes sense. Body composition correlates with how well patients do. In some cases, abdominal fat can even be an early biomarker of some cancers, like pancreatic cancer.

To look into the future is to catch only a glimpse inside Simon Warfield’s radiology research lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. His team is pairing hyperfast imaging and deep learning to push the limits of medical imaging and artificial intelligence (AI) to identify, prevent and treat disease. He’s also eyeing ways AI will help as data sharing expands among research sites. “The research world needs to look forward to manage forward,” he says.
