We set the Standard
Medical Review Institute of America, LLC (MRIoA) was founded in 1983. Today MRIoA is an industry leader in providing external review resources for clients nationwide. MRIoA provides review of medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy, vision, and workers’ compensation for insurance carriers, employers, TPAs, self- administered union groups, pharmacy benefit managers, consultants and departments of insurance nationwide.
In 2001 Bill returned to MRIoA as a national marketing representative with the primary responsibility of growing the company business. He is credited with bringing on many of MRIoA's largest accounts today. In 2006 Bill was appointed President. In his current role, he has oversight responsibilities for all corporate operations including product offerings, review quality, regulatory compliance, provider relations, human resources, and sales/marketing. Most importantly, he ensures his vision for corporate culture, customer service, and high quality is fully embraced by the employees. Bill spends much of his time traveling, meeting with clients and prospects ensuring MRIoA designs products that best serve the client's needs.
Bill has an Executive MBA and Bachelor of Science degree in Communications both from the University of Utah. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the Better Business Bureau in Salt Lake City. He resides in Bountiful, UT with his wife Shirley and their 5 children. Interestingly enough, he met his wife Shirley while she was working at MRIoA in 1992. Most of his free time is spent with his family. He especially enjoys watching his children participate in a variety of sports and other activities.
As the Chief Operating Officer at MRIoA, Jeff is driving improvements focused on customer and employee satisfaction to ensure that we provide trusted clinical guidance to enable the right decisions for patients while reducing overutilization costs across the Healthcare landscape.
Jeff is actively involved in the community with an entrepreneurial spirit as a catalyst for change in businesses and communities. He has pioneered startup initiatives and board developments to innovate around education as a founding member to revolutionize how kids learn and solve real problems alongside industry partners (IT Academy – Mukwonago High School). Jeff’s passion for change and providing opportunities to others also drove him to become a founding member to transform education and bring world-class learning to the poorest country in the western hemisphere (SchoolForHaiti.org). He was blessed with the opportunity to co-coordinate a red-carpet prom for 200 guests with special needs as part of Night to Shine with the Tim Tebow Foundation. Jeff loves to teach kids life lessons and leadership through sports as a coach for youth hockey, soccer, lacrosse, and football. He and his wife Colleen live in Salt Lake City with their son Justice while his other three kids are living their own adventures with Madisyn and Morgan finishing college and Mason serving as a US Marine.
His experience and background gave him the opportunity to work for a startup company in Salt Lake City as the VP of Engineering developing and applying artificial intelligence process control applications. When market conditions led to the dissolution of the company, Don leveraged his computer skills and became a freelance programmer.
A short term assignment in the fall of 2000 with Medical Review Institute of America, a small company who needed a little programming support, quickly turned into a fifteen year and counting position as head of Information Technology. As part of this role, Don also became responsible for Information Security at MRIoA. He earned his Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) credential in March of 2010.
Don and his family thoroughly enjoy living in Utah. As an avid skier (10 years on the Park City Ski Patrol), mountain biker, and with his general love of the outdoors, he finds it easy to make Utah his home.
Prior to joining MRIoA, Denny worked as both a hospitalist and clinical nephrologist. During his fellowship, he published articles in several peer reviewed journals.
Denny received his M.D. degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He has a master’s degree from Vanderbilt University and earned a BS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of Utah, subsequently completing his fellowship in nephrology at Vanderbilt University.
In addition to her compliance acumen, Aja brings to her position a well-rounded perspective and diverse skill set. With a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Utah and a Certification in Healthcare Compliance (CHC), Aja has assisted initiatives across the organization, from client relations and case management to marketing. She has worked to integrate a compliance mindset into company-wide processes, which has resulted in a score of one hundred percent compliance upon desktop and onsite review over multiple accreditation cycles. When not geeking out on all things compliance, Aja is probably hiking, camping, playing volleyball, or watching her daughter’s impromptu daily performances.
