Ilya Ivlev, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.I. (he/him)

  • Assistant Professor of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology, School of Medicine
  • Co-Director, Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center, School of Medicine, Oregon Evidence-based Practice Center


Ilya Ivlev is a physician-scientist passionate about improving health and healthcare equity through developing and implementing evidence into clinical practice. His professional focus spans from conducting systematic evidence reviews that inform clinical practice guidelines to executing original studies that address operationally relevant needs in health systems, known as Learning Health Systems (LHS) research. His mission is to improve health for All.

Over the years, he has spearheaded evidence reviews to inform clinical guidelines and policies. Many of his reviews have been used to develop clinical practice guidelines by the American College of Rheumatology, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Defense, the US Preventive Services Task Force, and others. Beyond systematic reviews, his original research has filled critical evidence gaps and addressed vital public safety concerns, including the health effects of tear gas exposure, leading to legislative changes. Additionally, he has partnered with scientific groups to improve methods for evidence synthesis.

He serves as a Co-Director of the Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) at OHSU. In this role, he leads teams in developing evidence reviews and supporting guidelines, furthering his commitment to evidence-based and data-driven healthcare.
