The dayzz platform, targeted at self-insured employers, aims to increase productivity and reduce sleep-related costs
Innovative corporate sleep solution provider dayzz launched its sleep training app built for enterprise workforces, which will help improve sleep while reducing employer costs related to decreased productivity, accidents and inefficient health care utilization. In the US, over 30% of the adult population suffers from sleep problems, and it is estimated that 50-70 million Americans have a sleep disorder that affects their health and quality of life. Insufficient sleep alone costs the US economy over $400 billion a year, and sleep problems among employees having huge financial implications on employers. dayzz’s vision is to bring better sleep to everyone while significantly decreasing sleep-related costs.
Along with proper nutrition and exercise, getting quality sleep is an important pillar of health. dayzz has created a personalized sleep training app that evaluates a number of sleep issues and offers a complete, holistic sleep improvement solution. It is a unique new service in the sleep app landscape, relying on evidence-based protocols and backed by leading physicians and therapists. Treating sleep problems takes more than a single solution, and each one needs to be tailored to each user’s lifestyle and sleep needs.
dayzz provides a complete plan, integrating what customers need in a personalized and gradual manner using big data analysis. The app incorporates data from a variety of sources, including mobile behavior (ex. phone usage), mobile sensors (ex. light, noise), and monitoring devices such as Fitbit®. Analyzing the varied amount of data allows dayzz to provide users with a personalized experience, which includes appropriately timed tasks, reminders and motivation boosts based on their sleep habits, lifestyle, location, motion and activity. Along with a human sleep trainer available for employees via chat, and an upcoming sleep support group feature, dayzz’s solution is easy to follow and adhere to.
The program begins with an initial sleep assessment, and monitors users over 24 hour periods, in order to provide a unique sleep training program for each user. The individualized programs offer feedback and guidelines related to daytime, nighttime, mind and environment, using big data to identify nuances in movement patterns and behavior. The plan constantly evolves and improves depending on each person’s training progress and personal needs.
“It is estimated that millions of Americans suffer from undiagnosed and untreated sleep disorders,” said Dr. Mairav Cohen-Zion, Chief Science Officer at dayzz. “In contrast to the traditional healthcare system, the digital solution easily lends to 24-hour hands-on sleep monitoring, and immediate, individualized, problem-based interventions aimed at supporting the sleep management process while encouraging and rewarding the user’s behavioral changes, known to improve sleep and associated physical and emotional well-being.”

“There is a rising awareness that lack of sleep is extremely detrimental to overall health. We are also aware that people may have more than one sleep issue, and that sleep is affected by more than just our nights,” said Amir Inditzky, CEO of dayzz. “If we can improve health and overall quality of life by improving sleep quality, costs incurred by employers due to insufficient sleep will drastically decrease. The healthcare system has a limited capability when dealing with a chronic condition such as sleep problems, but our digital platform provides a complete and easy-to-use solution that treats the individual, following up and ensuring progress.”
