Jerry Davis, VA’s Chief Information Security Officer, also recently left his post to become CIO at the NASA Ames Research Center. FedScoop first reported Levin’s decision to leave.
Levin has played a key role in several of VA’s biggest external technology initiatives.
Levin led the effort to create Blue Button technology for veterans to control and share their electronic health records with medical professionals. VA reported last fall that more than 1 million veterans downloaded their health records using the Blue Button technology.
Levin also played a key role in helping VA fix its claims processing system, and initiated challenges and contests to improve a patient scheduling application through its innovation initiative.
Throughout his career, Levin has worked in and out of government. He was a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator and a White House Fellow.
He also worked in the private sector where he co-founded and led a semiconductor design software firm, was a venture partner at Dusseldorf-based Ventizz Capital Partners, and was an executive director of Astaro A.G.
