Iora Health is restoring humanity to healthcare by providing a radically different model of primary care built from the ground up. Iora Health's care model provides extraordinary service to patients to ensure improved health outcomes while also lowering overall plan costs. Our patients enjoy the benefits of better access to care, office and non-office based encounters (e.g. phone, text messages, and email), an accessible and transparent medical record, and robust educational offerings. Our practices, across the U.S., enjoy the benefits of smaller sizes, closer relationships with patients, and the opportunity to lead systemic change in healthcare delivery while working with a true team.
