“Healthcare is faced with the unprecedented challenge of balancing the cost of an aging population who are increasingly living with long-term conditions with decreasing budgets. Technology has an absolutely pivotal role to play in transforming healthcare to support new care models that will drive better patient outcomes and operational efficiency. I am extremely proud and passionate to be working for DXC, who are delivering groundbreaking services and technology to an industry that touches all our lives.” -- Guy Lucchi
Guy Lucchi is a director in DXC’s Healthcare and Life Sciences practice in the United Kingdom. He is the chief architect of healthcare and life sciences industry software (HCLS) for DXC in the region and has been intimately involved in some of our largest and most visible healthcare initiatives.
As a lead technologist in healthcare, he is often called on to lead teams that resolve the most complex system problems. Guy served as the Chief Technology Officer for CSC on the NHS National Programme for IT for seven years; it was described as the largest, most complex, IT-enabled transformation for a civil client ever undertaken in the world, with a total contract value of $5 billion. More recently, he has played a leading role ensuring the success of a client patient coordination system, a first-of-its-kind solution in the population health market.
Guy instigated, shaped and drove a DevOps-enabled and software-defined data center transformation program in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Netherlands (UKI) region, which will form the basis of the next-generation infrastructure platform for all UKI healthcare-based workloads, including Lorenzo. His work, which received a Technical Excellence award in 2015, has reduced Lorenzo builds from days to hours and was the first example of the Agile IT offering. He also drove the creation of a global Mobile Reference Architecture that was subsequently adopted by the global mobility team.
Guy has an exceptional ability to harness the skills of cross-functional and geographically dispersed teams, encouraging collaboration and motivating members to accomplish extraordinary things. He believes success is based on understanding team members' different perspectives, cultures and ambitions and fostering a sense of cohesion and unity aligned to a shared goal. Being honest, open and approachable are key, coupled with a determination to "make things happen" and a never-give-up attitude that commands respect from the teams and motivates them to work hard and deliver what is needed.
