DXC Technology has announced the launch of a “community edition” of Springday, a digital evidence-based wellbeing platform designed to reduce psychological injury claims.

The community edition is exclusive to DXC customers and features multimedia content from leading experts and integration with wearables connected through desktop and mobile devices.

DXC says the features included in the community edition provides a cost-effective way for employers to manage employee physical and mental wellbeing.

“Insurers are becoming increasingly concerned with the rising number and costs of psychological claims,” GM Insurance Australia and New Zealand Michael Neary said.

“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.”

The platform was co-designed with insurtech Springday, which is part of a consortium focused on developing digital solutions for health and wellbeing in Australia.

Springday CEO Georgie Drury says the community edition of its flagship offering “doesn’t have the overhead of full integration and customisation”.
