Shortlister hosted Scott Osler, Sr. Director of Employer Partnerships at GRAIL to share how the Galleri Multi-Cancer Early Detection Test available to employees is a potentially life-changing benefit.
GRAIL is a healthcare company formed in 2016 from a world-class team of leaders, scientists, clinicians, engineers, and other experts, with the purpose to detect cancer early, when it can be cured.
The company headquarter is in Silicon Valley, at the heart of the intersection of the life sciences and technology industries and supported by leading global investors and pharmaceutical, technology, and healthcare companies.
The earlier that cancer can be found, the higher the chance of successful treatment and survival.
The statistics just confirms it:
Cancer is one of the largest healthcare spend categories for employers. Employer cancer care costs are growing at 2x the rate of other healthcare expenses. Additionally, the treatment of late-stage cancer can cost 2 times more than early-stage cancer. Diagnosed at earlier stages leads to fewer disability claims and less frequent early departures from the workforce.
GRAIL is using the power of next-generation sequencing, population-scale clinical studies, and state-of-the-art computer science and data science to overcome one of medicine’s greatest challenges with the Galleri™ multi-cancer early detection blood test. It is a ground-breaking and potentially life-saving advancement in cancer detection.
The compelling results supported by large clinical studies show that with Galleri™ Test, a simple blood draw can lead to unique results:
The results showed the following:
GRAIL’s commitment is to enable a seamless and positive employee experience. They do that with a comprehensive and consumer-oriented test experience which consists of four steps:
Currently, there are no effective early detection tests for the majority of cancer types, and many deadly cancers are often detected too late. Galleri has demonstrated the ability to detect more than 50 cancers and predict, with high accuracy, where the cancer signal originated in the body, all of this from a single blood draw.

|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|

|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. 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.

|Do service providers see information and reviews put in the site by your users?||Service providers cannot see the information put in by Shortlister's consultant and employer users.||Service providers can see information that was collected from their own clients.|
