Cority, the most trusted provider of environmental, health, safety and quality (EHSQ) management software, announced a strategic partnership with Highmark Interactive, an award-winning digital health company, to provide organizations access to practical, evidence-based solutions to assess and improve employee mental wellness and neurological performance through its innovative EQ At Work solution.
Highmark’s EQ At Work solution is a highly-interactive, gamified mobile application that allows employees to complete short, entertaining “mini-games” that help assess their mental wellness and neurological performance based on variables including reaction time, reasoning, memory, balance and stress level. Users can track their performance over time using highly visual dashboards and metrics, and even share the data with their treating health professional. By integrating Highmark’s EQ At Work solution with Cority’s market-leading Occupational Health platform, companies can leverage Cority’s extensive business intelligence tools to monitor aggregated and anonymized mental and neurological performance indicators more broadly, identify larger organizational trends for action, and help occupational health teams coordinate health and wellness services, including clinic exams, testing, and/or counselling for employees tailored to their specific wellness needs. This integration enables businesses to take a more proactive, data-driven approach to manage mental wellness risks, and help optimize employee health and productivity.
“With EQ At Work, we help organizations deliver an easier, faster, and more relevant way to assess mental wellness and neurological performance based on a unique understanding of dynamic brain function,” said Dr. Sanjeev Sharma, CEO of Highmark Interactive. “We’re extremely excited to partner with Cority to help empower employers with leading tools that will help enhance employee wellness now and into the future.”
“Organizations are increasingly recognizing the role that mental health and wellness plays on overall employee health, workplace safety, and sustainable business performance,” said Michael Couture, Chief Product Officer at Cority. “There is a growing appetite across industries for practical solutions that will enable firms to proactively identify mental health and wellness risks and allow them to take the appropriate steps to mitigate harm and remove barriers to care. Recognizing the importance of this issue, we feel our partnership with Highmark will enable us to bring newer innovations to clients to help them meet this challenge head-on.”
