The partnership will provide members with mobile digital technology, curated personalized content and access to an upstream virtual health platform in real time with a tailored and precise approach to their mental well-being.
(TORONTO) – August 10, 2021 – Novus Health, an information and technology-enabled health services provider and a leader in health navigation and wellness solutions, is partnering with Highmark Interactive (Highmark), an award-winning digital health company, to provide Canadian employers and their employees with access to technology and services that allow for an earlier identification and a more upstream approach to mental wellness through its EQ family of products.
Highmark, one of the world’s first companies to use gamification to develop a FDA-cleared Class II medical device, is revolutionizing how individuals assess and remotely monitor brain and mental wellness through digital and clinical solutions. Novus Health currently assists over 3 million employees to connect to health care in a more accessible, understandable, and effective manner by using its customized platforms that create a central access point for all elements of the member experience.
Novus Health members will be able to access the Highmark mental health tools and services through its expanded mental health ecosystem. This ecosystem utilizes a stepped-care model to deliver the right care at the right time. By accessing the Highmark mental health tools and services, Novus members will be able to optimize their mental health in a more upstream approach by evaluating and monitoring their resiliency which can allow them to self-identify and self-manage any imbalances between their own stress and recovery.
Highmark is equally excited to offer the Novus platform to their members as it will provide them with additional health navigation support, personalized content and health-related tools and information with the mission to keep them engaged and to promote better overall health outcomes.
“Partnering with Highmark is a critical step in the development of the Novus mental health ecosystem,” says Novus CEO, Robin Ingle, “The need for a multidimensional approach to mental health has become exponentially more important during the pandemic.”
“Highmark is pleased to collaborate with a partner like Novus Health who values mental well-being and has the ability to provide a guided, personalized and precise approach to mental health” said Sanjeev Sharma, MD, Highmark co-founder and CEO. “During a time of adversity such as the COVID-19 pandemic, leveraging tools such as Highmark’s digital health technology can help users build resilience and overcome the mental health issues both at home and in the workplace.”
