Llewelyn Brown has almost 20 years of experience in health information technology (health IT) with expertise implementing electronic health record (EHR) systems and developing measures of quality using EHR data.
Brown joined Mathematica in 2012 and currently directs a project exploring the feasibility of using EHR audit logs to quantify provider burden experienced during the use of EHRs, funded by the office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation. Brown also leads a task to validate electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) data submitted by hospitals to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid services. Past projects led by Brown have included development of an eCQM to evaluate opioid prescribing patterns and a project funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for health IT to measure safety hazards associated with the use of health IT.
Brown’s previous work includes system and clinical analyst positions at Computer Sciences Corporation, the University of Pennsylvania Health System, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Maimonides Medical Center. He holds an M.P.A. in public administration and health management/nursing informatics from the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service at New York University.
