While at the Health Insurance Association of America (HIAA; Washington, DC) CIO Devin Jopp saw his position shift from an information capacity to a more operational capacity, as exemplified by his secondary role as COO of the HIAA's business programs. Jopp has now made a further shift in that direction with his move to healthcare organization accrediting body URAC (Washington, DC; formerly Utilization Review Accreditation Commission), where he will serve in the newly created role of senior vice president, planning and operations.
"Coming from the CIO position provides a great jumping point into operations, as [CIOs] are often those most familiar with almost every aspect of an organization," Jopp says.
In his new position, Jopp will lead the internal operations of URAC, including finance, human resources, education and standards development activities. "URAC has the mission of promoting quality healthcare through its voluntary accreditation programs," Jopp says. "My role is to support the administration of our accreditation programs and continue to enhance our standards within our development cycle."
Jopp's goals include enhancing the processes that drive URAC's accreditation review function, building out healthcare IT standards as a core competency, and improving the organization's ability to support future growth.
