Iora changes primary care as we know it. Our care team, which includes a dedicated advocate for each patient, works together to treat the whole person. We see people when they’re sick, but also when they’re well, so that we can keep them healthy. Here, the environment is caring and patients have a voice. It’s our job to give them everything they need to live happier and healthier lives.
Our Health Coaches are relationship builders. They are hired for their ability to connect deeply with people because our Health Coaches are more than a friendly face. They are trusted resources, cheerleaders and partners in their patients’ care.
We believe it’s easier for patients to manage their lives when mental health is also prioritized and seen as integral to one’s overall health. At Iora, our patients can access their own behavioral health specialist in the comfort and privacy of their doctors’ office. Our specialists provide short-term counseling, assessments and referrals, as well as consultation to other team members, all within the scope of primary care.
For our model to work, we need partners who share our belief in a better way to take care of people. Together, we open practices, understanding that high quality primary care is the solution for happier, healthier and more engaged patients. And in the long run, this is what leads to lower costs.
