What We Do

CléMetric worked with the COR Clinical Consultants to enhance key features and visual appeal of our software to cater to a spectrum of healthcare professionals (nurses, physicians, researchers, and administrators). We were thrilled when the COR team helped us decode highly technical concepts to extremely functional meanings. That was above and beyond our expectations in terms of broad-based acceptance. COR can help you get to the core of your issues to find solutions. We highly recommend them.
-Gergens Polynice, CEO at Clemetric
COR is hardworking, knowledgeable and incredibly customer focused. They have built computer-based training modules for our customers, making our software fit seamlessly into their clinical workflow. They are thorough in their materials and are always responsive to both customer needs and our needs! They also have served as clinical experts and their feedback is invaluable. It has been a pleasure working with COR and I look forward to doing many more projects with them in the future!
-Adele Lolus, Commercial Operations & Finance Manager at Excel Medical
For the last six months, COR has been assisting me with a major project to help design an effective plan to meet the healthcare needs of residents that are forced to enter evacuation shelters here in Georgia. I first met Nicole Denham and her partner Bonnie Matthews when they volunteered through the local Medical Reserve Corps to work in a Hurricane Irma evacuation shelter. Their work in the shelter using their nursing skills was beyond amazing, and they also came back with a lot of ideas to improve processes, documentation methods, and more in a shelter. When I found out they also did consulting work, I eagerly hired them to help us improve our shelter planning process. They are wonderful; I highly recommend them. They are bright, passionate about their work, thorough, listen well and understand your needs, come up with thoughtful ideas to make the project better, and produce high-quality products on a timely basis. They are also a lot of fun to work with, which is a bonus. You will not be sorry if you hire them to help you with a project.
