NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 22, 2019
wayForward, a behavioral health and emotional wellness technology company, today announced its partnership with Carebridge Corporation (Carebridge), providers of integrated EAP and wellness programs, to provide instant behavioral health support to the over 4 million lives they cover around the world. wayForward gives Carebridge EAP users easy access to scientifically validated assessments, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy based digital programs, and enables them to reach out from any connected device for one-on-one counseling when needed. The platform’s robust analytics enable Carebridge customers to track employee progress and outcomes.
“Carebridge approached us with a very clear objective: to make it easier for covered employees and their families to access mental health support,” said Dr. Navya Singh, Founder and Chief Clinical and Operations Officer for wayForward. “As one of the most forward-thinking EAPs in their use of technology, the Carebridge team was extremely rigorous in their evaluation process, which is why we’re so pleased they selected our digital platform to support their entire book of business. We look forward to a fruitful partnership and to enabling Carebridge to quantify the value they bring to their users and clients.”
Independent, as well as internal studies have shown that the wayForward platform improves user’s anxiety, depression and other behavioral health conditions. According to wayForward data, a third of all employees complete detailed screening on multiple domains. Additionally, the regular digital outreach campaigns engage over 25 percent of covered employees.
“We’d been approached by a number of customers and brokers looking for a technology solution that provided users with a balanced combination of online support and easy access to licensed therapists, which is precisely what wayForward offers,” said Richard L. Betts, President and CEO of Carebridge. “We believe the wayForward platform will give people an opportunity to start with self-guided programs to improve, knowing there’s a support system behind it. We particularly valued the ability to seamlessly integrate our EAP and wellness services and generate hard data which vividly show the ROI we deliver to our customers.”
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our continued commitment to making behavioral health support accessible and, as importantly, effective in achieving positive health outcomes for all stakeholders: patients/employees, employers and providers,” said wayForward’s CEO Ritvik Singh. “Central to our business strategy is partnering with “best in breed” EAP partners like Carebridge who share our commitment and show how striking a balance between intelligent technology and counseling expertise can make EAP play a more central role in a company’s success.”
