CORA Direct: Smarter Than Using a Network

When you work with CORA Direct®, your fees go straight to clinical care instead of network overhead. That means we can deliver more care for less money. It also means no "one-size-fits-all" treatment plans dictated by the network. CORA Direct® patients receive individualized recovery plans develped specifically for them.

And we're every bit as convenient as a network. The CORA Direct Rapid Referral Center® gives you one convenient, consistent, HIPPA-compliant point of contact for all your referrals to over 80 CORA-owned and operated clinics throughout Florida.

But how do outcomes from CORA Direct compare to network-referred patients?

CORA Smart Protocols®: Smarter Evaluation

Our disciplined, comprehensive process allows us to better understand and motivate patients.

Our approach employs CORA Smart Protocols to create a complete evaluation of each patient to help us develop exactly the right plan. After all, severity of the injury is an important criteria, but not the only one.

CORA Smart Protocols Incude:

Every patient responds differently to treatment. Some will recover quickly, while others experience complex issues that must be taken into account for the plan to be effective. An overweight 55-year old with diabetes will require a different approach than a fit, motivated 25-year old with the same injury. Differences in overall health and lifestyle can complicate recovery and drive benefit costs up as well.

We listen carefully - and ask the right questions - to fully understand each patient's habits, culture, job, work and home environment, and general approach to living. Then we tailor a program specifically to help the individual to reach the prescribed goals.

CORA Health knows from experience that the best way to motivate patients to comply with their recovery plan is to actively involve them in creating it. And every patient's recovery plan is structured with a series of milestones, each of which is designed to produce a fast, safe return to work.

Achieving milestones helps speed return to work and avoid re-injury:

CORA Smart Systems®: Smarter Technology
