05 September 2017

Cira Health Solutions (Cira), a trusted national provider of independent medical evaluations and health-related services, today announced its Three-Year Reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International. This reaccreditation represents a substantial achievement for the organization as it demonstrates Cira’s client commitment to continued growth and service excellence.

CARF is a globally respected, independent, non-profit accreditor of health and human services organizations. Their mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services. Cira’s CARF reaccreditation is confirmation to clients and partners that the organization’s medical assessments and health-related solutions are of the highest calibre as compared to international best practices and standards.

“By pursuing and achieving reaccreditation and benchmarking itself against international standards for quality, Cira continues to foster a culture of excellence,” began Karen Seward, President of Cira Health Solutions. “Our client-centric approach is evidenced by an investment in people, processes, and technology, and validated by our accreditation from this esteemed organization.”

“This CARF reaccreditation is a testament to our focus on the quality and execution of our programs and services. We are able to measure and ensure we are accountable to our clients in ways that give them confidence in their decision making as it relates to a file,” adds Dr. Avi Orner, Medical Director at Cira Health Solutions.

“We have invested significantly in our Cira Health Solutions business over the past two years and I am delighted that this CARF reaccreditation validates what we have known to be the case for some time,” says Ross Betteridge, Chief Operating Officer for SCM Insurance Services. “Cira makes our clients better and is able to outperform in the independent medical evaluations marketplace by utilizing market leading technology, a well-managed and respected medical assessor panel of experts along with experienced and accountable leadership.”

Cira was originally accredited by CARF in 2013, and this reaccreditation will apply to the organization for the next three years.
