Dick Schopp, one of the pioneers of the health information technology industry with 50 years of service, died on August 16 at the age of 75.

“We lost a great one last week,” says industry veteran and consultant Vince Ciotti of HIS Pros, where Schopp most recently served as a principal.

Schopp was a long-time regional sales manager for the health services division of McDonnell Douglas Automation, an early hospital information systems vendor known as McAuto. He was director of information systems at Magee Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, served at HIS Inc. and a founder of Healthcare Computing Strategies.
