IPRO has functioned as a Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS)(R) compliance audit organization since 1997.

IPRO has conducted approximately 1,000 HEDIS(R) compliance audits in thirty states, using NCQA-certified auditor employees and subcontractors.

"With a team of experienced, certified auditors, we expect the change-over to be seamless to MCO customers," said Virginia Hill, R.N., M.P.A., IPRO's Vice President for Managed Care. She noted that the new entity's CEO, Anu Sajja, M.P.H., has a five-year history as an NCQA-certified HEDIS(R) Compliance Auditor and Senior Director in IPRO's Managed Care Department. Sajja has a Masters of Public Health degree with specialty areas of epidemiology and quantitative methods from the University of Medicine and Dentistry at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Administration from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.
