BSM Hires 2 New Senior Consultants to Join Progressive, Rose Divisions
We are thrilled to announce the hiring of two new senior consultants — Lisa Harrington and Elizabeth Cifers — to our growing team of experts. This announcement was made by Bruce Maller, president and CEO of BSM Consulting.
Lisa Harrington, former owner of Langston Healthcare Services, a San Diego-based ASC consulting firm, joins Progressive Surgical Solutions, a division of BSM Consulting that specializes in the development and management of ambulatory surgery centers. At BSM, Harrington will apply her extensive knowledge of ASC daily operations, licensing, Medicare certification, and accreditation for ambulatory surgery settings to work with a variety of ASC clients.
“Lisa brings a unique and highly valued set of skills to our surgery center consulting team,” Maller said. “In addition to spending six years managing a busy multi-specialty surgery center (San Diego Outpatient Surgical Center), Lisa has also been intimately involved in all aspects of ASC licensing, certification, accreditation, and compliance for about 100 surgery centers. This coupled with her experience with office-based surgical facilities will be helpful as we expand our presence with single and multi-specialty centers, as well as in cosmetic surgery.”
Harrington joins five other Progressive division consultants, who have more than 125 years of combined ASC experience. She is based in San Diego.
Elizabeth Cifers, former business and finance administrator/compliance officer for Retina Institute of Virginia, joins Rose & Associates, a division of BSM Consulting that specializes in Medicare reimbursement and compliance for the specialty of ophthalmology. A certified procedural coder, Cifers will use her 13 years of practice management experience with Retina Institute of Virginia and certification in health care compliance to conduct chart audits for BSM clients.
“We are thrilled to bring Elizabeth onto the BSM team,” Maller said. “Her industry knowledge and real-world experience in managing all aspects of a busy retina practice will add tremendous value to the company. Elizabeth’s intimate understanding of billing, coding, and compliance will enable us to better meet the needs of our clients in this fast-growing segment of the company.”
Cifers joins three other Rose division consultants who have substantial experience in the ophthalmic arena and expands the team’s ability to help clients make sound Medicare compliance decisions. She is based in Midlothian, Va.
