Anthony Lange, Virtusa’s Senior Vice President for Healthcare and Life Sciences, speaks about advancements in healthcare in light of a post-pandemic world

Anthony Lange is Virtusa’s Senior Vice President for Healthcare and Life Sciences. Having worked with the organisation for nearly 13 years, he witnessed first-hand the shift of technology from a nice-to-have to a must-have capacity. A charismatic and team-oriented leader, Lange’s role at Virtusa changed drastically with the onset of COVID-19. Pre-pandemic, a large part of his role was based around travel, meeting clients, visiting site locations and so forth. This routine flipped on its head the moment lockdowns happened, but that didn’t stop Lange from working harder than ever and thinking of ways Virtusa could support its clients and partners through these unprecedented times. “I don't think I’ve ever worked so hard in my life, and a lot of it was about our employees' safety and making sure they were in the right place, both physically and mentally. We spent a lot of time ensuring we’re doing things the right way as fast as we can and with the right logistics in place.” 

Lange prides himself on being a leader who is always available and says there is no other way to go about it. So, team calls and standups have become commonplace, Lange quips, and while this was necessary to facilitate workflows, he believes it also did its part in ensuring that the employees’ well-being was top priority at all times. 

Speaking about Virtusa’s long term vision and his personal ambition with the company, Lange believes that he challenges the status quo every day, pushing the organisation to be better and do more for their clients and ultimately those that depend on their services. When asked about what motivates him, Lange says, “In my perspective, the healthcare and life science team feel honoured to be in this industry, because while a lot of the other industries work to make other people rich, what we are essentially doing is trying to save lives, and we save lives every day.” 

When asked what digital transformation means to him, Lange equates it to buying something online as opposed to going to a physical store to purchase it. “When you take away all the words”, he says, “...that’s basically what digital transformation is.”
