Competitive Health Inc (CHI), a virtual health services marketplace, has partnered with SimpleTherapy Inc, which provides virtual musculoskeletal (MSK) care.

Created by orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists, SimpleTherapy is a low cost, 24/7 solution that helps members avoid unnecessary surgeries, addictive opioids, and needless doctor visits associated with pain and recovery.

It is now part of the CHI SHOWBenefits mobile platform and the Competitive Health marketplace, according to a media release.

“Competitive Health is proud to partner with SimpleTherapy. One of our core business philosophies is to provide pain relief solutions to our members. SimpleTherapy’s digital health solution can help our members physically heal, reduce employee absenteeism, and move toward pain-free lives,” says Kimberly Darling, President & CEO, Competitive Health Inc, in the release.

Combining a physician designed care program and a no-appointment-necessary philosophy, SimpleTherapy guides members to relief and recovery at a self-directed pace while keeping them compliant to the gold-standard of care for MSK.

“We are very excited to be tightly aligned with Competitive Health on our vision and mission to bring affordable, evidence-based care to individuals as early as possible. This partnership further accelerates that goal and increases access to SimpleTherapy for tens of thousands of Americans,” Arpit Khemka, CEO of SimpleTherapy, comments in the release.
