Dr. Berlowitz is a professor of health policy and management at Boston University School of Public Health and director of the Center for Health Quality, Outcomes, and Economic Research. He leads a research team dedicated to assessing and improving the quality of health care in both ambulatory and long-term care settings. His research on ambulatory care focuses on the management of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. In the long-term care setting, he is a strong proponent of assessing nursing home care through the use of risk-adjusted outcomes calculated from administrative databases. Using pressure ulcer development as the model, he has demonstrated how these data may address a variety of policy-relevant issues. He received an MD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an MPH from Boston University.
