After getting my Master’s in Public Health, I wanted something bigger, to do something for someone besides myself. When I found Iora, I thought ‘This place really exists? People are working like this?’ It gave me hope!

I get to help patients by finding the best people to care for them. It’s an honor to work with team members who have such high hopes and dreams. There’s a respect and appreciation for everyone who works here. We’re all needed to do what we do.

This isn’t just a job. It’s a way of seeing the world. It’s an answer to a question I asked for a long time: Where can I make an impact? Many people we talk to know they want to make a difference but aren’t sure how. This is a place where we can build something together.

To impact health care overall, we start with primary care.

We believe that by investing more in primary care, we invest more in our patients. We take the time to get to know them as people, to learn about their goals and to understand how we can help in getting there. And because of this, our patients become more engaged and healthier.

Our results are externally validated.

We continuously measure our impact on the health of the patients and communities we serve using a rigorous methodology developed in partnership with an advisory panel from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. We assess patient experience, engagement, access, clinical outcomes and coordination of care. And we share this population data with our sponsors transparently and frequently.

Patient engagement and experience

The number of people that use Iora for their primary care has grown quickly since our first practice opened in 2014. Results show that these patients are actively engaged, satisfied and very likely to recommend Iora to a friend or colleague. For our Medicare practices...

Never in my life has anyone cared for me the way you do here.

Clinical outcomes

Iora’s Medicare patients dealing with hypertension and diabetes have had better success controlling these conditions as compared to the national average. By improving patients’ health and increasing the coordination of care, Iora significantly reduces unnecessary utilization and downstream spend:

Coordination of care

Our investment in primary care includes what we do for our patients as well as taking the time to coordinate care that happens outside of our practices. This results in healthier people. And healthier people leads to lower costs thanks to lower rates of specialty care, diagnostic use, ER visits and hospital admissions.
