Providing Life and Health services

Life and Health Solutions

As a leading provider of independent medical assessment services in Canada, Cira operates with the goal of advancing employee health through timely diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Working with life and health providers, Cira provides targeted solutions to support and complement existing workplace health and disability programs.

With a roster of over 1000 medical specialists, Cira offers time-sensitive, professional, and cost-effective medical expertise to help case managers and plan providers determine:

  • The medical prognosis as it relates to short- and long-term disability
  • What treatments are required based on the medical assessment
  • Whether or not the employee can return to work and what accommodations are required

We are invested in building constructive partnerships with disability providers. Our clinical coordinators, health professionals, and medical director all work in partnership with case managers and other stakeholders to facilitate the employee’s optimal treatment pathway.

The Critical First Step: A Clinical Diagnosis

We enhance the disability provider’s capacity to manage cases through our ability to provide clinical diagnoses from medical experts. A proper and timely diagnosis is a critical step on the path to recovery, especially for mental health issues.

Our health professionals are experts in their fields, and as such have the experience required to provide timely and accurate diagnoses. They also offer treatment plan recommendations so that corporate human resources (HR) departments and case managers can support the employee’s health and well-being.
