Eric Lester is Director of Network Services at one of the largest providers of inpatient behavioral healthcare services with a network of over 500 behavioral healthcare facilities in 39 US states, the United Kingdom and Puerto Rico. It was ranked on the Fortune 100 list of fastest growing companies in 2016. Eric leads the Network Engineering, Telecom, and Field Support teams responsible for the design and engineering, deployment, and support of network related services at all of the company’s facilities. He is a strong proponent of cloud, virtualization and automation of network services.



The future of clinical healthcare is based on cloud applications. Yet healthcare service providers are stuck with rigid, status quo networks that have been in place for over 15 years and impede the implementation of modern cloud-based in-clinic services.
In this session, titled, “Transforming to Cloud-Based Healthcare Applications with SD-WAN,” Eric Lester will explain how Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology from Viptela is empowering their lean organization to:


  • Migrate to cloud-based healthcare applications
  • Ensure 100% network uptime of patient and administrative services
  • Transition to a Hybrid WAN for Active/Active utilization and application based path selection
  • Achieve zero-touch IT capability while migrating the clinic footprint to the cloud
  • Rapidly enable services like guest WiFi, and cloud-based VoIP and medicinal dispensing
