Cloud transformation holds paramount importance in today's healthcare environment. Not only does it make patient care, data accessibility, and operational efficiency possible, but also enables real-time collaboration and facilitates advanced analytics. Rapid access to critical information, seamless scalability and reduced infrastructure costs further underscore the transformative potential of cloud solutions, paving the way for a more interconnected and patient-centric healthcare ecosystem.

With a history spanning 180 years, SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, is on a cloud transformation journey with a well-defined road map to achieve infrastructure elasticity, better disaster recovery and reduction in carbon footprint.

"We are on course to achieve our goals well within time. However, for any large-scale cloud migration to succeed, planning and sustainability should be given more importance than the speed of deployment," Nath said.

In this video interview with ISMG, Nath discussed:

  • Challenges of legacy IT and impact of COVID-19 on its transformation;
  • A systematic approach to cloud migration;
  • Why security should be a shared responsibility between organizations and governments.

Nath has more than 20 years of collaborative and tactical executive leadership experience. He is committed to enhancing the end-user customer experience to support evolving business needs. By cost-effectively utilizing technology in alignment with corporate financial goals, he successfully managed annual investments and expenditures ranging between $30-$40 million.
