The issue


Aetna initiated a randomized controlled trial to test the efficacy of a mobile CBTI (cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia) solution on sleep quality, workplace productivity, and quality of life in a commercial business population.



  • Email recruitment sent to 32000 employees offering the Sleeprate service
  • 3900 showed interest and had PSQI scores greater than 8
  • 500 were selected and randomly assigned to the Sleeprate CBTI intervention or control group
  • Both groups got a pre-study survey including: ✓ PSQI ✓ Work productivity and Impairment (WPAI) ✓ Health Related Quality of Life (HRQOL).
  • Both groups got post-study surveys at 8 weeks and 12 weeks following initial survey.
  • Surveys were administered and analyzed independently of Sleeprate data analysis.

Usage Funnel

Out of the 250 who received the application, 183 completed a baseline sleep assessment, and 83 completed 3 weeks of digital therapy with an average of 5 nights tracked per week.

Benefits and advantages


Sleep and Wellness Improvement at 12 weeks

  • PSQI scores were 68% lower than the control group (P = 0.00), and improving 4.8 points from baseline.
  • Workplace presenteeism was 49.4% lower than the control (P=0.00),
  • HRQOL indicated 4.8 Healthy Days (P=0.00) per month were added to the intervention group.
  • Sleep Latency (SO), Wake After Sleep Onset (WASO), daytime sleepiness and morning sleep satisfaction, as monitored within the APP, also improved significantly.
