Q&A with David Entwistle, president and CEO, Stanford Health Care

by Sean Ruck , Contributing Editor
From the August 2018 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine

HealthCare Business News spoke with Stanford Health Care president and CEO David Entwistle about his background, the efforts Stanford is taking to make use of their Silicon Valley connections, and some of the exciting advances they are seeing as a leading academic medical center.

HCB News: What inspired you to follow a career in healthcare?
David Entwistle: In high school, I took three years of Latin. I was determined to be an attorney. Then I had the opportunity early on in my collegiate journey to meet some individuals who were attorneys, and I determined pretty quickly that it wasn’t the right career path for me. After being introduced to several healthcare CEOs, I really got excited about the idea of dedicating my career to something that really benefitted individuals. These CEOs I met early on showed me that, through hard work, it is possible to improve the health of entire communities.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

HCB News: What attracted you to Stanford Health Care?
DE: My career focus has always been on academic medicine. I really enjoy the teaching, research and clinical aspects of what we do. Academic medical centers are at the leading edge of patient care. We’re developing the latest technologies, the latest treatments, and we’re doing research that drives where the industry is going. When I got the call from a recruiter at Stanford Health Care, I said to myself that I could not miss the chance to work at what I think is one of the best academic medical centers in the country. The opportunity to work in the heart of Silicon Valley, where digital health technology is reaching a tipping point, was also too good to pass up. Healthcare is such a labor-driven industry, and it’s expensive. I believe that technology—used in the right ways—can be a powerful tool, so that’s why I want to not only improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare, but to create more consumer-friendly experiences for our patients.

HCB News: What attracts patients and employees to Stanford Health Care?
DE: There’s certainly a strong brand recognition. But more important, what we’re able to do with the incredibly talented and experienced professionals here is astounding. The people who come to work at Stanford Health Care continue to push the boundarides of what’s possible. From the CAR-T therapy we’re pioneering today to our recent 50-year celebration of the first heart transplant in America, which happened right here at Stanford, innovation is very much a part of our DNA. I think there’s also a very collaborative spirit at Stanford Health Care that enables us to bring a breadth of expertise together to tackle some of the most complex challenges in medicine today. From a patient perspective, there’s not only incredible patient safety, there is a long history of excellence. We are at the forefront of technology and have always been.
