ProjectZ, Optisom’s sleep health program, addresses sleep deprivation through techniques involving cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Optisom has partnered with CoreHealth, a workplace wellness platform that powers programs for corporate wellness companies, insurers, health coaching companies, employee assistance providers, group benefits brokers, health systems, and consulting firms that deliver health and wellness programs to client organizations.
“Clinically, adequate sleep is absolutely necessary to allow the body maintain and regulate its vital systems,” says board certified sleep physician and Optisom chief medical officer Dominic Munafo, MD, FABSM, in a release. “When the body doesn’t get the rest it needs, it becomes more vulnerable to both disease and injury. Research links sleep deprivation with higher risk for stroke, heart attack, diabetes, workplace accidents, and many other health problems.”
By integrating ProjectZ into CoreHealth’s corporate wellness technology, organizations on the platform can give employees easy access to the clinically-based program to increase healthy sleep behaviors. Studies show that better sleep health results in higher productivity and creativity and lowers healthcare costs and accident rates.
Anne Marie Kirby, CEO of CoreHealth Technologies, says, “The wellness providers we work with are always looking for tools and resources to help their client’s workforces improve physical and emotional health. Sleep is a fundamental part of achieving overall health so it was important we partnered with a leading sleep solution like Optisom. ProjectZ is the perfect complement to our existing network of best-in-class wellness vendors and we look forward to seeing how employees reap the benefits of good sleep.”
