Membership Categories

USCIPP
Introductory Member

This membership category is primarily intended for organizations that are either joining USCIPP for the first time or are rejoining after a membership lapse. Completion of the annual benchmarking survey will be recommended (but not required if the member’s international program is too nascent to provide usable data). Introductory members will receive the benchmarking reports only if they complete the survey.

Introductory members will also receive any formally developed business intelligence research reports/deliverables within 12 months after they are released to Premium members.

Once an Introductory member has completed their first year of membership and have completed at least one round of benchmarking surveys, they will be eligible to renew either at the Standard or Premium level.

USCIPP Premium Member

Premium membership replaces the previous structure in which some of our members also supported a separate Sponsored Projects Fund (SPF). While the Premium membership category is open to all organizations, the membership is particularly useful for more established programs, including those that may have an international focus that extends beyond the direct provision of care to patients traveling to the US.

An important goal of the premium membership category is to support a broader portfolio of member-supported project activity. This is made possible by dedicated staff support in the form of a business intelligence analyst who supports one or more projects that will be planned on an annual basis as well as a portfolio of shorter-cycle work focused on emerging member interests and needs. Examples of the types of projects Premium membership will support are provided below:

USCIPP
Standard Member

This membership category is intended for organizations that have been a part of USCIPP for at least one year. Annual completion of the benchmarking survey is a requirement for this level of membership, and Standard members will receive all benchmarking reports. Standard members will also receive any formally developed business intelligence research reports/deliverables within 12 months of their release to Premium members. Support for custom staff work (e.g., customized analytic reports) is available to standard members on a fee-for-service basis.

If a Standard member chooses to drop its USCIPP membership at any point and wishes to renew at a later date, the organization must rejoin first as an Introductory member. Additionally, if a Standard member does not complete the benchmarking survey during a given year, they will need to renew at the Introductory level until they have begun completing benchmarking surveys again.

Organizations are eligible for Standard membership once they have completed an annual survey data submission for the prior year.

Workflows


Annual-Cycle Work

Projects requiring in-depth/methodical analysis and/or updating of existing resources. Prioritized on an annual basis. Opportunities may be provided to commission additional work on an ad hoc basis.


Quarterly Projects

Research involving rapidly changing contexts and/or the need for quick turnaround (e.g., RSO, evolving payor activity by region). Run on a 12-week cycle. Reprioritized quarterly.


Rapid-Cycle Work

Smaller-scale projects relevant to multiple premium USCIPP members (e.g., additional analyses of the benchmarking survey data, additional country profiles, other issue briefings). Reviewed quarterly.


Direct Service Work

Activities requested by individual premium USCIPP members (e.g., database/archival research and retrieval, consultations about specific topics). Tracked by utilization and requesting organization on an ongoing basis.

Premium members guide a portfolio of USCIPP business intelligence & research initiatives and are invited to serve on associated project advisory committees. They also receive first access to the associated work products.
Completion of the benchmarking survey is a requirement at this level of membership, and Premium members receive all benchmarking reports. If a Premium member does not complete the benchmarking survey in a given year, the organization will only be invited to renew its membership at the Introductory level. If a Premium member chooses to drop its USCIPP membership at any point and wishes to renew at a later date, the organization must rejoin first as an Introductory member.
