CIMRO added two review staff members in 2023: Brandi Woodward, MSN, RN as review coordinator, and Amy Jo Adams as credentialing and review project specialist. Brandi is brand new to CIMRO, while Amy Jo is making a return to the team.
Brandi joins the other review nurses in supplying clients with the information and education they need to ensure providers are giving – and patients are getting – the best care possible. She interacts with clients and reviewers all along the journey from assignment of cases to delivering the final product.
Prior to joining CIMRO, Brandi held positions including medical-surgical nurse and clinical liaison in an acute inpatient rehabilitation unit. She worked in managed care, facilitating a safe continuum of care after discharge for high-risk Medicare patients, and served as quality practice adviser for a kidney health management company. During the COVID crisis, Brandi provided telehealth triage, support, and education to active and retired military members and their families.
Brandi and her partner, Ryan, are “pawrents” of two cats and a dog. Her son is in college, preparing for a career in veterinary medicine.
Amy Jo is one of the first contacts reviewers have with CIMRO. She is part of the recruiting process, and handles credentialing and bringing new reviewers on board. She held the same role from 2012 to 2017, and we’re glad to have her back!
Originally from Arcola, IL, Amy Jo holds a bachelor’s degree in health information management and a master’s degree in pastoral counseling. Her past experience includes working in medical records and managed care.
She and her husband have two teenagers and a Welsh Corgi. Among many sports and school activities, they enjoy camping and traveling as a family.
