Peter Levin

Chief Technology Officer Department of Veterans Affairs (USA)

You might expect to meet an electrical engineer, GPS expert, computer scientist, semiconductor company CEO, venture capitalist, CBO policy analyst, academic dean, and nationwide health system CTO at Health 2.0. But you’d be a bit surprised to find they were all one person. CTO at the VA since June 2009, Peter has already overseen the radically successful VA innovation challenge, the famous–and now expanded to everyone–Blue Button initiative, and the VAi2 challenge grant funds. And then there’s that little VA project called VistA. Peter will share his perspective on the role of entrepreneurs in health IT ecosystems around the world and specifically for healthcare giant players like the VA.
