At the HLTH conference in Vegas the week before Thanksgiving, I decided to embark on another adventure in health care. Somehow I badly hurt my back and was barely able to walk when I found myself at the Hinge Health booth. Could they give me any help? As it turned out they could. I met physical therapist Lori Wolter who showed me (and used me as a guinea pig for) their Enso device and got a quick update on Hinge Health’s progress from its President Jim Pursley.

Omada Health put to use part of their recent $57M funding round to acquire Physera, a musculoskeletal care company that uses telehealth and digital interventions to deliver ‘virtual physical therapy’ to those suffering from back, knee, and neck pain. How does the acquisition fit into Omada’s growth strategy? WTF Health’s Jessica DaMassa chats with both Omada Health’s CEO, Sean Duffy, and Dan Rubinstein, CEO of Physera, about the acquisition, the IPO buzz that continues to swirl around Omada, and whether or not the opportunity that COVID-19 has created for digital care will be lasting as we move forward.
