Bri Clarin, CMRS, Healthcare Consulting Manager, Eisner Advisory Group

What is your current role?

My main focus is Revenue Cycle Management (RCM). From operations to high-level analysis, I have worked on projects such as Interim Manager, Director or VP of RCM to help practices during transition, Revenue Cycle Assessments, Revenue Cycle Operational Process review and redesign based on best practices and much more. My experience has provided me with knowledge of all areas of the revenue cycle; front, middle and back office from multi-specialty complex medical and dental insurance billing including payer claim requirements, revenue codes, pre-authorization, ICD and CPT codes, as well as financial forecasting, procedural development and operations.

I have been viewed as an exceptional problem solver. I analyze data and get to the root causes to create efficiencies and reduce resources, and I can explain the meaning of those results to the organization’s decision-makers. I have been with EisnerAmper since the Lurie/EisnerAmper merge in 2022 and have been working with Lurie since 2020. Prior to that, I owned a small Revenue Cycle Consulting and Medical billing company.

Why did you join the TRUST & what is your role?

I joined the TRUST in 2021 after being referred by colleagues who stated it was an incredible organization. They were absolutely correct! I was really looking for a network and, ultimately, a community where I could learn and grow from women in the health care industry.

I am co-chair of the Well-Being Retreat for the Associate Board and am also on the Programming Committee.

What has been your favorite part of being a TRUST member?

My favorite part of being a member of the TRUST is the connectivity. Everyone is so supportive of each other and happy to share experiences, knowledge and talent, as well as being willing to put in the time to network and help one another grow professionally and personally.

What one word would you use to summarize what the TRUST means to you?

Community. We have such an amazing group of women in this organization who truly support each other in their journeys – both personally and professionally.

What is the best career advice you’ve received?

The best advice I’ve received is to not be afraid to stand up for your worth, invest in your future or change courses in your career.

How do you support other women in their leadership journey?

I love doing whatever I can to support other women in their leadership journey. From networking coffees where I share my experiences, to introductions to others I think can help other women reach their goals, to just talking through hurdles and brainstorming how to overcome then, I try to take the time as others have taken with me and am excited to be part of their journey.

What do you love the most about the health care industry?

What I love most about the health care industry is its diversity. From physicians to hospitals to technology to marketing, research, and education, we have a vast array of members who contribute to this wonderful organization. Collaboration of different views and different experiences makes us stronger as leaders within our industry.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist since 2018. As a Certified Personal Training Fitness and Nutrition Coach, it is my vision to inspire, encourage, motivate and challenge clients to reach their goals and to be the best version of themselves. I provide clients with the tools and encouragement they need to successfully help them transform their lifestyles. I lead fitness sessions as well as fitness and nutrition education to help others make knowledgeable, healthier choices. It is my goal to create a positive, safe environment for clients to feel comfortable in. I help design and modify workouts based on each client’s needs and skill level for where they are today so they can reach their goals in the future.

Words of wisdom to live by?

“Get out of your own way.” There are plenty of difficult obstacles we must overcome to reach our goals and we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be one of them!
