If we wanto to move into a digital era, what does the technology look like? What is that technical foundation that you're going to build upon look like? So part of the role is, Hey, do you have an understanding of how cloud technology should really work? Do you have an understanding of what the API and the open source world looks like? And just having that understanding doesn't mean just take it and drop it into healthcare because there's different sensitivities in this industry. But understanding that technology allows you to come in and really poke holes and say, how can it work and what should it look like within healthcare?
