athenahealth Invests in Employee Wellness Through New Partnership with Restfully

April 12, 2021 – Boston-based athenahealth, a pioneer in cultivating modern healthcare ecosystems, today announced that they have partnered with Restfully to provide pediatric sleep coaching services for employees and their families. 

Restfully offers personalized physiological and psychological plans designed by doctors and leading sleep experts to provide a scientific approach backed by cutting-edge research.  They specialize in pediatric sleep solutions to improve sleep quantity and quality for the whole family. 

Wellness in the workplace has been a growing trend over the past decade.  At a time when employees are increasingly overwhelmed by economic uncertainty, limited social outlets, and blurring lines between work and personal time, employers are increasingly considering the mental well-being of their workforce. 

For employees shouldering the added responsibility of childcare, the importance of sleep wellness is paramount. Athenahealth recognizes the benefit not only for employees, but for the organization as a whole.  

One employee explains, “I was beyond tired and barely functioning – I couldn’t even drive into work some days. I had to decrease my hours by 30%. My productivity was suffering and I was fearful that I would lose my job. After working with a REST Coach, that all changed!  I was able to regain control of my family’s sleep patterns and returned to my former energetic self.” 

Restfully Chief Education Officer, Arielle Greenleaf says that this is a common worry among clients suffering from sleep deprivation and disruption – they know that they aren’t performing up to their usual standards, or they’re making mistakes – and they’re afraid it will cost them their jobs. 

Likewise, companies suffer the fallout of lost productivity, major errors, and even violations of safety standards.  “Sleep is essential to all members of the family, and our partnership hopes to deliver family wellness to all interested Athena employees,” says Mellisa Massardo, Co-Chair athenaFamilies at athenahealth.

All athenahealth employees covered by their Aetna medical insurance plan can be fully reimbursed for Restfully services.  Employees that do not receive medical benefits through athenahealth may use FSA or HSA accounts to pay for Restfully.  For more information please contact media@restfullysleep.com.
