Aetna Rolls Out MyBrainSolutions Wellness Site

Calling it a new wellness and behavioral health benefit, the insurer says the games, videos, and trackers will improve stress management, memory, and attention.

Hartford, Conn.-based Aetna has unveiled a new wellness and behavioral health benefit named MyBrainSolutions. It's a brain-training website offering games, videos, and trackers that were created by Brain Resource Inc. (San Francisco, Calif.) to improve stress management, memory, and attention, according to the insurer's announcement. These, it says, will assist employers trying to raise productivity and improve the health and well-being of their workers.

MyBrainSolutions uses a personal brain assessment to measure four areas of brain performance -- emotion, thinking, feeling, and self-regulation -- and then matches the person to specific brain training games and exercises.

"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 personal dashboard is available to track individual brain health success, as are tools for setting and tracking long-term goals. The online training is self-paced, private, and can be completed in as little as 10 minutes per day, Aetna said.

"Clinical evidence clearly demonstrates the correlation between brain health and physical health," said Hyong Un, M.D., 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. CEO 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."
