DXC Technology partners with health & wellbeing insurtech Springday
IT services company DXC Technology 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 an 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.
“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.” – Dr. Michael Neary, general manager, Insurance, Australia and New Zealand.
“DXC and Springday codesigned 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 customization. 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.” – Georgie Drury, CEO and founder of Springday.
