Jason McRoy has joined Quality Health Network in Grand Junction to lead the analytic intelligence and strategic risk stratification services department of a community information exchange.
McRoy will focus on data collection and analytics for the Community Resource Network, an information exchange among behavioral, social and medical agencies to meet needs and fill gaps in services.
McRoy brings to his duties nearly 18 years of experience in the human services and health sectors, most recently as deputy account director with the IBM Watson Health Division on a project with the Colorado Department of Healthcare Policy and Financing. He also served as director of the business operations and systems division of Boulder County Housing and Human Services.
He graduated from DePauw University and studied mathematics at the University of Colorado at Denver.
“I am very excited to be able to join QHN and the broader Western Colorado community in implementing CRN,” McRoy said. “The visionaries behind CRN speak volumes about the type of leadership and innovative thinking happening across Colorado. My hope is to bring an analytic perspective to the implementation in terms of helping to develop the evaluation model for the system, but also to look at how the data collected by the application can be used to generate new insights for the staff and programs using it.”
Dick Thompson, executive director and chief executive officer of Quality Heath Network, welcomed the addition. “Jason’s unique understanding of complex data will enable us to capture critical information across the three domains — medical, behavioral and social. This will lead to life-changing analytics that identify those most in need and prioritize help to them, ultimately filling the gaps in care.”
