VA CTO Peter Levin to leave agency
Monday - 2/18/2013, 6:00pm EST
Peter Levin, the department's chief technology officer for the last 3 1/2 years, announced he is resigning, a VA spokeswoman confirmed.
The spokeswoman said there are no details at this time about Levin's plans or the date he will leave.
Levin's resignation follows on the heels of VA Assistant Secretary in the Office of Information and Technology and Chief Information Officer Roger Baker's decision to resign last Friday.
Jerry Davis, VA's Chief Information Security Officer, also recently left his post to become CIO at the NASA Ames Research Center.
Peter Levin, chief technology officer, VA
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.
