Syra Health’s “Syrenity” Research Study Protocol Approved by Institutional Review Board

CARMEL, IN, April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Syra Health Corp. (NASDAQ: SYRA) (“Syra Health” or the “Company”), a healthcare technology company with a mission to improve healthcare by providing innovative services and technology solutions, announced today that Pearl Institutional Review Board (IRB) has approved the Company’s research study protocol for “Syrenity,” Syra Health’s prevention-focused mental and behavioral health platform.

Syrenity is evidence-based and designed to empower users to take control over their mental health via continual monitoring through assessments, cognitive therapy interventions, and telehealth access to licensed therapists.

Syra Health launched Syrenity in October of 2023, with a focus on selling the product to employers looking to support the mental health of their employees; colleges and universities who want to support the mental health of their students; and payer organizations supporting the mental health of their members. Organizations pay a monthly fee, based on the number of Syrenity users.

The IRB-approved research study will be conducted by third-party university researchers and practicing psychologists who will enroll approximately 300 people with moderate or worse depression severity. Participants will be randomly divided into two cohorts, one with access to Syrenity and the other without. The two-month study will examine the efficacy of the Syrenity app and determine in what ways it helped users improve their mental well-being. The study’s results will be targeted for publication in a scientific journal.

“We are proud that the protocol has been accepted by the institutional review board tasked with ensuring this randomized control trial meets all requirements,” said Dr. Srikant Devaraj, Vice President of Health Analytics and Leader of the Mental and Behavioral Health Business Unit, Syra Health. “This empirical research study is the right way to show if Syrenity is helping engage users and proactively lowering mental health symptoms. This research study will enhance the credibility of our Syrenity solution.”

Through the Syrenity app, users can also schedule health activities and set goals for their mental health. Syrenity’s humanized AI companion uses sentiment analysis and empathy for frequent chatting to help the user overcome obstacles and track their progress. At any point in

time, users can navigate a crisis by pushing an emergency button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen which immediately calls the Crisis and Suicide Lifeline.
