Scottsdale, Nov 19, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Resonea is proud to highlight its partnership with the city of Goodyear's Energize 2020 fatigue management program. The city of Goodyear, Arizona, is a leader amongst municipalities focusing on employee well-being and efforts to mitigate the negative impacts of fatigue on health and productivity. Resonea is partnering with the city of Goodyear to offer its comprehensive, innovative DROWZLE® Sleep Health Program to both employees and their bed partners.
Within the first 30 days of launching the program, 26 (30%) individuals were identified as having significant risk for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and were connected to the City's onsite Wellness Clinic for further follow up.
"Ninety-seven percent of Americans have at least one risk factor for fatigue, with sleep loss being the second most prevalent factor," said Tim Fisher, Continuous Improvement Manager for the city of Goodyear. "As part of our Whole Employee culture, we believe providing employees and their spouses. This resource is essential in supporting emotional and physical well-being. Sleep really is a quality of life issue."
Approximately 70% of Americans suffer from chronic sleep problems and, 90% of employers report being negatively affected by employee fatigue. There is a defined link between poor sleep health and fatigue on employee productivity and absenteeism, costing employers ~$63 billion a year. OSA affects 20% of the population in the US, and it's estimated that 80% of those affected go undiagnosed
"Sleep is so vital to our health and is one of the most important things we can do to help improve medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, not to mention memory and focus. By improving our sleep, we not only feel better and less fatigued, but we actually perform better," says Dr. Karen Underwood, Chief Medical Officer of Resonea.
The DROWZLE Sleep Health Program uses smartphone technology to screen workers for common sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) while also providing sleep education and strategies and Sleep Well/Live Well, a virtual, self-managed sleep improvement program.
