Our Story

In 2014 our founder and CEO, Shakil Haroon came up with the idea for MPIRICA while investigating the best hospital for an immediate family member living abroad and in need of advanced surgical care. After several weeks of research, he realized that easy-to-understand and trustworthy quality information that covered U.S. hospital history of delivering successful outcomes at the procedure level was not readily available.

It was then that the idea for the MPIRICA Quality Score was born. At that point, Shakil set out to build a stellar founding team and group of advisors to create the Score and the underlying cloud-based software and API.

Backed by a rock-solid methodology and nearly 30 years of rigorous medical quality analysis by MPA Healthcare Solutions, the MPIRICA Quality Score represents an outcomes-based, apples-to-apples comparison of medical providers at the surgical procedure level.

Armed with this type of comparative metric, patients and primary care physicians can now be more informed and have greater peace of mind when choosing a hospital or surgeon.

MPIRICA also offers healthcare payers as well as employers who have self-funded health plans the ability to reduce healthcare risk and cost by steering their workers toward high value providers who are both effective and efficient in their care.
