Shortlister hosted Jocelyn Nowak, VP of Mid-Market Sales, and Todd Norwood, Director of Clinical Services, to share how Physera brings virtual physical therapy to provide employees with personalized care for muscle and joint pain.
Physera is a workforce virtual physical therapy solution that provides care to patients using licensed physical therapists via a smartphone app. As of May 2020, Physera is a part of Omada Health.
The global pandemic has hastened the pace at which companies and their employees have been forced into the adoption of digital solutions in all areas of business. Wellness and physical therapy are no different.
Working from home has caused new physical difficulties for workers, as the absence of traditional workspaces, ergonomic chairs and other standard office furniture can be the source of new ailments and injuries in our now-confined world. Simultaneously, doctor’s visits have become more difficult than ever, as stay-at-home orders and social distancing are the new normal.
Physera’s virtual physical therapy solution solves both traditional obstacles to receiving proper muscle and joint care, and new obstacles caused by the pandemic:
Early physical therapy helps thwart long-term health issues as well, leading to measurably better outcomes:
With Physera, patients saw an average 27 percent reduction in medical spend compared to similar employees who did not use Physera.
Not only do patients get quicker and more accessible physical therapy with Physera, but they also get high-quality, evidence-based care.
Physera has strict hiring standards for its physical therapists.

|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.|
