Background

Dr. Scott Berkowitz is an associate professor in the Division of Cardiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He has published widely in the emerging fields of accountable care, population health and care delivery transformation. He has explored this from the perspective of academic medical centers, primary care and specialty providers, and current accountable care organizations. He has also examined the ethical implications related to accountable care, among other areas. Most of these articles provide guidance and recommendations to provider groups and health systems who view Johns Hopkins as a leader in this area and are seeking to transform themselves.

Dr. Berkowitz received his undergraduate degree from Yale University, his medical degree from the Yale School of Medicine and his master’s degree in business administration from the Yale School of Management. He completed his residency at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine as well as a clinical and research fellowship in the Division of Cardiology. He also completed a research fellowship in the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Prior to joining the Johns Hopkins faculty, Dr. Berkowitz was a congressional fellow for the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and for the Senate Committee on Finance, and a senior policy development adviser for health care in the Office of the Governor of the State of Illinois.

He serves as the project director/program administrator of the Johns Hopkins Community Health Partnership (or J-CHiP) which is currently transitioning beyond the award.
