Certified Outcomes Report Analysis (CORA)

The challenge to reducing medical costs is finding high-value healthcare vendors, solutions, tools, and programs that deliver on their performance and outcome claims. CORA covers what benefits buyers and benefits advisors need to know to verify these claims to help their companies and clients spend more wisely.

In four self-paced modules, CORA lays the foundation with basic terminology and concepts, then advances to program design and program results, covering the following topics:

  • Defining key terms like population, intervention, and outcome
  • What data is valuable to analyze
  • How data comes together into outcome measures
  • Real-world CORA applications

Students receive a checklist which includes each of the topic areas. In the real-world application section, students practice using the checklist alongside real case studies to test and explore their new skill set.

After taking the course, students will be able to:

  • Explain the components of a high-value healthcare program/service
  • Discern a valid population health measure from an invalid one
  • Analyze a program offering and list which elements are missing
  • Explain why each element is needed
  • Distinguish between high-value and low-value healthcare programs/services by analyzing outcome claims
