Claro Group Adds Trio of Healthcare Consulting Specialists

The Claro Group, a national financial and economic advisory firm, has added a team of three healthcare advisory specialists: Managing Director Melissa Scott, Managing Director Jeannie O’Donnell and Managing Director Nicole King.

The trio join Claro from B. Riley Advisory Services, a division of B. Riley Financial that provides advice on compliance and risk, forensics and litigation, restructuring and mergers and acquisitions.

Scott, O’Donnell and King bring deep consulting expertise in provider/payor reimbursement litigation, healthcare operations, internal audit, forensic analysis, regulatory compliance, investigations and transactional reviews.

The trio will form the core of a new team of healthcare consultants within Claro’s litigation and investigations practice, with Scott as the leader.

Scott has spent the past three years as a general manager at B. Riley. Previously, she spent nine years in the consulting services practice of Change Healthcare (formerly Sinaiko Healthcare Consulting), where she most recently served as Managing Director. She also previously held senior management positions in revenue cycle management at St. Luke’s Health System in Boise, ID; Bend Memorial Clinic in Bend, OR; and Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

O’Donnell has spent the past three years at B. Riley as an associate director. Previously, she spent eight years at Change Healthcare, where she was most recently a management consultant. She has also held auditor positions with Geisinger Health System, Greater Columbia Behavioral Health and Chan Healthcare Auditors (now Crowe).

King spent the last year and a half at B. Riley as an associate director, after spending four and a half years at Change Healthcare as a senior program manager. Previously, she was Director of Revenue Cycle at St. Luke’s and Data Analyst at St. Alphonsus Medical Center.

“We are very pleased to welcome Melissa, Jeannie and Nicole to the Claro family,” said Matt Schwab, General Manager. “Their arrival significantly expands our Litigation & Investigations practice. While many of us at Claro have periodically been involved in a variety of healthcare issues, Melissa’s team brings a level of industry knowledge and expertise that attorneys and clients covet. Melissa, Jeannie and Nicole have a real passion for the work they do and will prove to be wonderful additions to Claro.

Founded in 2005, Claro provides advisory services in corporate finance and restructuring, fraud and investigations, claims and litigation. The company has more than 140 people in offices in Chicago, Washington, DC, Houston and Los Angeles.
