Irina Angel, MD, MS


Irina Angel, MD, MS, is a Research Scientist on the Quality Measurement Team at the Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE). Dr. Angel joins CORE to launch an effort to realize technology-powered health outcomes transformation using health data interoperability (HL7, FHIR) and to achieve integrated health benefits to address patient safety, care coordination, and dissemination of best practices. She has MS in Health Informatics and Analytics from the Tufts University School of Medicine.

Prior to CORE, Dr. Angel worked as a consultant to decentralized research companies, including 4You&Me and Nightware; as a patient safety monitoring physician at Meta Medical, and as a Subject Matter Expert at Pear Therapeutics, where she integrated user perspectives to support meaningful patient and clinician engagement while spanning their digital reach through connected health innovations.

Dr. Angel is Board Certified in Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, practicing in Boston since 2001. She served as Medical Director of the Cambridge Youth Guidance Center and Medical Director at the Cambridge Eating Disorders Center, among others, where she oversaw teams caring for large panels of acute and subacute patients, including medication-assisted treatment of Opioid Use Disorders. During her service at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, she was recognized for exemplary performance in the Press Ganey/CG-CAHPS patient satisfaction survey.

Dr. Angel has experience with Clinical Standards of Care and Safety Monitoring and evaluation of clinical data, developing emotional-social and cognitive tools in collaboration with the Children's Mental Health Task Force (CMHTF), the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Massachusetts Medical Society while addressing patients' unmet needs through education, collaboration, and advocacy.

Dr. Angel received her Medical Degree in pediatrics through a 6-year accelerated bio-medical program at the Russian National Research Medical University (RNRMU). She completed her psychiatry residency at the University of Pennsylvania and her fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Angel has ten publications from clinical and spatial epidemiology research and opinion pieces on medical and behavioral integration initiatives, digital health in pediatrics, and physicians' commentary on electronic health records. Her lifelong research interests remain in infant mental health. She hopes to have an opportunity to participate in a newborn intensive care informatics project utilizing a network-enabled monitoring application for the early detection of warning signs evident in physiologic data streams before they can be captured through traditional methods.

Dr. Angel profoundly cares about lifelong learning, people development, and a culture of belonging.
