Neura Health Introduces Comprehensive Virtual Sleep Care Solution for Employers

Solution will treat all sleep conditions, focusing on sleep apnea and insomnia

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, virtual neurology clinic Neura Health announced the introduction of its comprehensive, research-based solution for employers to support employees experiencing sleep disorders. The sleep-specific offering expands Neura’s suite of solutions for neurological conditions, adding to its proven solution for headache and migraine care.


Sleep conditions have a tremendous impact on the workforce, with sleep deprivation costing the U.S. economy $411 billion and 1.2 million working days each year. Insomnia, as one example, can increase per-employee spend by upwards of $4,000 for employers when compared to employees without a sleep disorder. Sleep deprived people are also twice as likely to make mistakes at work and are more likely to suffer from downstream health problems as a result of their sleep deprivation, to the tune of a 13 percent increased risk of mortality compared to somebody who follows a recommended sleep schedule.

Neura Health’s virtual neurology clinic is perfectly suited to treat a wide range of sleep disorders, all of which involve the brain. Neura connects patients with a sleep specialist in less than a week via video visit, allowing the specific problem to be diagnosed and treated quickly with a personalized plan. Neura coaches stay with patients throughout the course of treatment, helping guide them and adapt the treatment plan as needed. Sleep apnea patients will also be able to access home sleep apnea testing and sleep apnea devices through Neura.

“Our virtual neurology clinic model has proven successful in quickly and effectively treating neurological conditions like headache and migraine, so expanding that model to sleep conditions, one of the most costly and prevalent chronic condition segments within neurology, is a logical next step,” said Elizabeth Burstein, co-founder and CEO of Neura Health. “Our solution combines fast access to specialists and ongoing, personalized support that’s unique among other sleep products, and will maximize value for employers looking to support employees dealing with these disorders.”

Unlike other solutions on the market which focus on a small set of sleep disorders or are limited to a set of particular treatment methods such as wellness programs, content, or medication, Neura takes a comprehensive approach. This allows for employees with any sleep disorder, or combination of sleep disorders, to receive the exact intervention they need quickly from a sleep specialist, along with continued, personalized support.

“The current process for identifying and treating sleep disorders, like other neurological diseases, is often fraught with inefficiencies, including long wait times to see a specialist and difficulty getting an accurate diagnosis,” said Douglas Moore, Head of Product at Neura Health. “Our virtual neurology clinic addresses those gaps, getting patients the care they need quickly with ongoing support so that employers can reduce mistakes and missed work days, not to mention comorbidities, that result from sleep deprivation.”
