Technology innovation reduces psychological claims for Australian employers and insurers
SYDNEY, Australia – DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, announced the launch of the community edition of Springday, a digital evidence-based wellbeing platform designed to reduce psychological injury claims.
The community edition provides employers with a cost-effective online platform that allows employees to proactively manage their physical and mental wellbeing through gamification reducing the likelihood of workplace-related workers’ compensation claims.
The new platform was co-designed with Springday, a participant of DXC Invitational, an annual competition aimed at connecting start-ups and scale-ups from around the world with the insurance industry.
Dr Michael Neary, general manager, Insurance, Australia and New Zealand, said, “Insurers are becoming increasingly concerned with the rising number and costs of psychological claims. The complexity and difficulty in achieving return to work outcomes mean psychological claims cost almost twice the average physical injury claim. Our immediate focus has been workers’ compensation claims management but addressing mental injury claims is equally important for life and health insurers. DXC is keen to work with insurers to improve the wellbeing of Australians and reduce these claims.”
Georgie Drury, CEO and founder of Springday, says, “DXC and Springday co-designed a community edition of Springday’s flagship offering, which is exclusive to DXC’s customers and doesn’t have the overhead of full integration and customisation. Through working with DXC, we have been able to identify a significant opportunity for us to generate broader awareness around the importance of workplace wellbeing.”
The community edition platform features multimedia content from leading experts and integration with wearables accessible through desktop and mobile devices.
“DXC is committed to working with the insurtech sector to accelerate the innovation cycle of the insurance industry. We are delighted to be working with Springday to reduce the impact of stress and improve the physical and mental health of individuals,” added Dr Neary.
