CareFlash and Coro Health Team-Up to Improve Quality of Life and Enhance Outcomes
PR Log - May 14, 2012 - Coro Health and CareFlash, thought leaders in new media care innovation, have melded together their flagship products – CoroFaith and CareCommunities – integrating community and spirituality into a seamless, user-specific experience – nurturing better outcomes across the entire care continuum – throughout recovery, rehabilitation and aging as well as with impending losses and the grief that follows.
CareCommunities – each a private, invitation-only social media experience, enable family caretakers and loved ones to go far beyond the common tendency to limit interactions to recovery updates, well-wishes and messages of support. By aggregating meaningful community with spirituality – emotional barriers recede and concerns about intrusiveness diminish – improving outlook, optimism and overall wellness.

Rod Hildebrant, CEO, Hospice Advantage, Bay City, MI http://www.hospiceadvantage.net “The real value of hospice and the undeniable reason for our existence reflects our continued commitment to provide care, comfort, and compassion to the whole family. We are encouraged that this innovative CareFlash-Coro Health partnership extends how we help whole family healing by integrating spiritual content into an interactive social experience that makes it convenient to patients as well as associated loved ones."
Jim Faucett, CEO, Houston Hospice, Houston, TX “Everyone sees the baby boomers are the fastest growing demographic adopting social media and the ways it is changing how people interact. This CareFlash-Coro Health partnership is an innovation that brings people together using community and spirituality, overcoming emotional barriers that commonly explain why people find it difficult to become meaningfully engaged throughout a loved one’s final days and after their loss.”
James Monahan, EVP, Tidewell Hospice, Sarasota, FL “Having CoroFaith integrated into the CareFlash CareCommunities, provides a timely service for family members and the patient themselves, but it also allows hospices to differentiate their marketing efforts which can lead to increased referrals and giving. Traditionally, hospices have been ‘high touch, low tech’. CareCommunities allow them to be both, driving better outcomes for both family and patient.”
Eric Makowski, CEO, CORE Health Care, Austin, TX http://www.corehealth.com “Brain injury, mental illness and other developmental disabilities can impact every area of life. CORE Health incorporates treatment strategies designed to enhance behavioral, cognitive, physical and psychological functioning, as well as family issues. By integrating community and spirituality into the healing process, the CareFlash-Coro Health partnership dovetails nicely with the ways we incorporate the latest approaches to enhancing recovery, while nurturing the positive human elements of relationships, encouragement, optimism and advocacy.”
Jonathan Ross, CEO, Austin Recovery, Austin, TX "Addiction affects the whole family. It’s unmistakable the ways community and spirituality help whole families succeed in recovery. The CareFlash-Coro Health partnership is exciting because it mirrors our commitment to innovation, in the ways it integrates community and spirituality into the recovery process."
Rachael Wyatt, Board Member, Austin Recovery, Austin, TX "Beyond enhancing outcomes, the CareFlash-Coro Health partnership is an understandable, measurable approach to converting Austin Recovery's compassion and goodwill into marketing and giving. It has been my observation that some of the most powerful advocates for, and donors to Austin Recovery are those whose loved one and family have benefited from the care they received."
Kelli Kelley, CEO, Hand to Hold, Austin, TX “When a family is in crisis following a preterm birth, they face numerous challenges. Loved ones often want to help but often do not know how! CareFlash bridges these gaps by enabling families to create a centralized, online place to share updates and, more importantly, to engage a fabric of meaningful community while in the NICU, after discharge, or in bereavement. The CareFlash-Coro Health partnership extends our commitment to whole healing by adding this valuable (optional) spiritual content to nurture better outcomes. We are proud to offer this to our families.”
