Center for Health Care Innovation
Shivan Mehta is the associate chief innovation officer at Penn Medicine and an assistant professor of medicine and health policy at the Perelman School of Medicine. Shivan is a clinical gastroenterologist and also serves as co-director of quality for the Division of Gastroenterology.
Shivan leads a team of managers, designers, and engineers to develop, evaluate, and implement health care delivery innovations across Penn Medicine’s health system. Current projects focus on connecting with patients outside of traditional venues through population health outreach and automated hovering. Shivan has led and evaluated 20 pragmatic trials of health care delivery that leverage behavioral science, care redesign, and information technology to improve population health outcomes in areas such as colorectal cancer screening, hypertension management, breast cancer screening, hepatitis C screening, and vaccine outreach.
He has received external funding from the National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Aging, and National Comprehensive Cancer Network to support these initiatives, and his work has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, BMJ, JAMA Internal Medicine, and Gastroenterology.
Shivan received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Yale University, his medical degree and master’s in health policy research from the University of Pennsylvania, and his MBA in health care management from the Wharton School. He was a resident in internal medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia and a fellow in gastroenterology at Penn Medicine.
