Branding Director

Meet Brian

Brian Murphy helps mid-revenue cycle healthcare professionals--clinical documentation integrity (CDI), HIM/coding, and case management/UR professionals, as well as trauma/oncology registry professionals--find fulfilling careers. In whatever way fulfillment means, whether that is work/life balance, salary, promotions, and more.

Brian is the Branding Director for Norwood, a company dedicated on placing great people in great roles in the mid-revenue cycle. Norwood also offers CDI consulting including traditional acute-care inpatient services, but places special emphasis on value-based CDI--some call it ambulatory or outpatient--as well as pediatrics. It also provides medical coding audits and support.

Brian is the former founder and director of the Association of Clinical Documentation Integrity Specialists (ACDIS). He helped grow ACDIS from zero members at launch to nearly 7,000 members, and developed educational products, a certification program, a national conference, and a popular podcast. In his spare time he’s a published author of non-fiction and lives in Massachusetts with his wife and two daughters.
