HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Aetna (NYSE: AET) announces a new wellness and behavioral health benefit that helps improve overall brain health – MyBrainSolutions. MyBrainSolutions is an interactive brain-training website that brings together games, videos and trackers designed to improve stress management, memory and attention. These services are specifically designed for employers looking to improve productivity and the health and well-being of their workforce.
Created by Brain Resource, Inc., MyBrainSolutions provides adults with the tools they need to take charge of their own well-being and performance. MyBrainSolutions uses an objective personal brain assessment to measure the four key areas of brain performance - emotion, thinking, feeling and self-regulation - and matches a person to specific brain training games and exercises.
Regularly participating in exercises designed to improve brain health can help in many ways. For example, it helps participants:
"There are strong linkages between brain health and overall health and well-being,” said Louise Murphy, head of Aetna Behavioral Health. “The addition of MyBrainSolutions into our industry leading portfolio of products provides our members with a fun and engaging way to improve their health and wellness."
A MyBrainSolutions personal dashboard is also available to track a person’s individual brain health success. Goal setting tools help set and track long-term goals, including the positive actions and daily habits that support those goals. The online training is self-paced, private and can be completed in as little as 10 minutes a day.
“Clinical evidence clearly demonstrates the correlation between brain health and physical health,” said Hyong Un, MD, Chief Psychiatric Officer for Aetna Behavioral Health. “MyBrainSolutions’ unique approach uses the latest knowledge about the interconnected nature of the brain to provide integrative training that helps people regulate their emotions, thoughts, and feelings.”
“We have seen significant interest and momentum build around the concept of brain health,” said Gregory A. Bayer, Ph.D. chief executive officer of Brain Resource, Inc. “Employers are looking for better ways to engage employees in wellness programs and promote resilience, and our solutions fill the gap between wellness information and action.”
