LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. – Mary Beth Conroy has joined IPRO as Senior Director of Data and Analytics. In this role, Conroy will serve as data lead for all Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) contracts. Conroy joins IPRO after 32 years of qualitative and quantitative research experience working for the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH).
Conroy has extensive experience leading professional staff engaged in quality measurement, biostatistics, predictive modeling, population health, information technology, policy analysis, health systems research and reports. This makes her well-prepared to oversee the extensive data collection and analytics requirements for IPRO’s three CMS contracts. Under IPRO’s largest CMS contract, it serves as a Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) in 11 states and the District of Columbia, touching the lives of 20 percent of the nation’s Medicare beneficiaries. Under a separate CMS contract, IPRO is also a Hospital Quality Improvement Contractor (HQIC), working to improve the quality of healthcare in 270 hospitals across 12 states and the District of Columbia. IPRO also holds CMS contracts to run four End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) networks in New York, the Ohio River Valley, the South Atlantic region, and New England.
“Adding Mary Beth to IPRO’s Data and Analytics team helps position us for the future,” said Herman Jenich, Sr. Vice President and Chief Data and Analytics Officer at IPRO. “Her deep experience in data, research, and technology will advance IPRO’s analytics strategy, including growth in our use of predictive modeling and artificial intelligence.”
During her time at the NYS DOH, Conroy led professional staff in the development and operations of data systems and analytics. During the COVID-19 state of emergency, she served as a leader and key member of teams deployed to provide information, data and statistics to the Commissioner and the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force.
A resident of the Town of Halfmoon in Saratoga County, Conroy holds a Master of Public Health from SUNY University at Albany with a concentration in Health Policy and Management. She will be based in IPRO’s Albany office.
