SimpleTherapy was founded in 2011 by Orthopaedic Surgeons doing their residency at the University of Pennsylvania. After discovering that patients are commonly treated surgically prior to exhausting effective and non-invasive treatment modalities such as physical therapy, SimpleTherapy was formed with the mission is to make early intervention highly accessible, very simple to perform, deeply personalized, and following best practices that are proven to relieve pain quickly.
There is significant peer-reviewed research that demonstrates that most MSK-related conditions can be managed or eliminated through the use of early, conservative measures such as exercise therapy. However, 77% of all physical therapy prescriptions go unfilled and only 30% of those who even begin therapy complete their course of care. The result of low adherence to exercise therapy is worsening symptoms, utilization of higher levels of care, avoidable surgeries, and a significantly higher cost of care per patient. Reportedly, the high cost of co-pays and deductibles, having to take time off of work 2-3 times per week, and other inconvenience factors contribute to its low adherence rate.
SimpleTherapy is a solution without any barriers that is performed at home. It guides users to recovery using technology that augments a user’s care pathway in real-time.
SimpleTherapy is the first line of defense against musculoskeletal disorders. The program was developed by clinicians and mimics the thinking of a physical therapist in real-time to speed recovery and provide lasting MSK relief. SimpleTherapy addresses 85% of all musculoskeletal conditions (head-to-toe) and integrates into an employer’s existing ecosystem to responsibly navigating members to the appropriate level of care sooner in the care continuum.
The simple user interface provides access to evidence-based care in less than 3-minutes. Unlike other musculoskeletal solutions, SimpleTherapy learns about the user’s condition and modifies their care plan in real time to achieve deep personalization and optimal recovery. Each user’s recovery plan is unique to them and their journey is dynamically modified to keep them engaged and progressing to recovery. Three tiers of health coaching provide a high touch experience and behavioral support.
– 89% of users recover
– up to 60% fewer healthcare resources utilized
– up to ,800 cost avoidance per condition recovered
SimpleTherapy has successfully completed Independent IRB Clinical Trials demonstrating safety, efficacy, and the ability to guide users in a self-directed program using an intelligent algorithm without the need for costly and complicated sensors.

It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|

Service providers are also able to collect reviews from their customers, once they are validated by Shortlister.

There is no way for public site visitors to differentiate the source of the review.|
