Prudential and NeuroFlow are working together to extend their mental health benefits for Prudential employees on disability leave. NeuroFlow provides a platform through which employees get access to care coordination services and crisis intervention, as well as self-service tools for psychoeducation, relaxation, and coping skills training.
NeuroFlow platform uses data analytics and artificial intelligence to identify at-risk employees and help them with the help of an app that improves their disability experience and outcomes. NeuroFlow will provide a real-life care coordinator access for additional support.
“Prudential has long advocated for addressing the psychological impact that accompanies injuries or illnesses that put someone out of work. That need has become much more urgent with the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dr. Kristin Tugman, vice president of Health and Productivity Analytics and Consulting Practice for Prudential Group Insurance.
He further added, “The drastic changes to how we live and work have only made our mental health crisis worse and more complex. Improving access to behavioral health resources was a natural next step in supporting our claimants and helping them return to work.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the employees reported a 48% increase in the risk of depression between November and December of 2020, according to the Mental Health Index by Total Brain and the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions. Prudential identified this problem and responded to it by partnering up with NeuroFlow which will surely benefit the employees and make the work environment better.
