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.
