wellteq announces a partnership with Lysn, a mental health company whose technology offers personalised mental health coaching and consultations.
- Lysn offers over 500 psychologists on-demand capable of 11 languages with a global reach including triage, learning modules, workshops and presentations.
- The combined solution offers psychology with digital wellness and objective mental health screening to offer the most comprehensive mental health and wellbeing solution for enterprises across APAC.
- The partnership will deploy immediately as a digital innovation to the Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and offers immediate consultation capability following risk detection.
Mental health has become a primary focus of large employers and insurers recently and wellteq has responded by extending their capabilities to include objective screening and virtual consultation through partnerships. Incorporating counselling to specifically focus on mental health has been a strategic plan, and builds on the recently launched objective mental health screening capability.
New End-to-End Solution Helps Employers Get Ahead Of Risk
EAP utilization rates have traditionally lingered at 2-4%, whereas the corporate wellness industry average surges ahead at ~25%. By adding mental health screening and psychology to digital wellness capabilities, the wellteq end-to-end solution extends the value chain of an HR investment. Leveraging wellteq’s personalisation engine to triage employees earlier improves the current care model and helps employers get ahead of risk.
By integrating Lysn’s virtual and face-to-face consultation capabilities into wellteq’s digital wellness platform, wellteq extends the use case and continuity of care. Its suite of digital health assessment and wellbeing tools now extend past objective health risk assessment and preventative coaching into psychological consultation. This extended value proposition now strongly contends to disrupt the current Employee Assistance Program (EAP) market by offering broader value for higher workforce utilization and data-rich insights for more strategic workforce support compared to the status quo.
What Does This Mean For Employees?
For employers this collaboration offers an end-to-end solution from prevention programs and engagement to 1:1 consultation-based care, specific to mental health in the workplace:
- New insights into employee mental wellbeing that can help with support programs such as return-to-work and more targeted workplace wellness interventions.
- More accurate employee profiling allowing employees to get ahead of the risk before the situation becomes more serious and costly.
- Safe and secure digital environment for employees ensures user anonymity as only aggregated information is reported back to the employer.
Dr Jonathan King, CEO and Founder of Lysn, said:
“Such an exciting partnership to announce with wellteq, combining workplace physical data insights with Lysn’s wellbeing software and services provide a holistic wellbeing approach for employees and their workplaces.
Collaborating with wellteq, we’ll provide better data-driven employee assistance programs. This will not only help employees but increase the return of investment for businesses. We make a really simple and transparent process for companies to see their return on investing in wellbeing. I am very excited to see how we can transform workplace health together.”
Scott Montgomery, CEO of wellteq, said:
“Employers for a long time have been calling out for innovation to the incumbent EAP model. Due to its siloed and reactive nature, it was attracting underwhelming utilisation by waiting for employees to activate the solution rather than the solution activating the employee.
wellteq now with our Lysn partnership can offer proactive wellness engagement via data-driven personalisation for employees, and when needed can seamlessly triage into private 1:1 coaching or consultations. Finally, we can link risk assessments, preventative wellness and specialist consults into one smartphone app. I’m incredibly excited by this partnership and the outcomes we’ll deliver in this next 12 months alone.”
