Healthcare Workers Wellness Index (Live)

Tracking the impact of COVID on the mental health of frontline healthcare workers.

Receptiviti's Healthcare Workers Wellness Index measures the daily emotional and psychological health of doctors and nurses. It continuously analyzes daily submissions and comments by thousands of self-identified doctors and nurses in their posts on Reddit in medical subreddits (r/medicine, r/nurses, r/emergencymedicine), beginning June 1st, 2019 through to the current day. It evaluates key emotions and psychological variables that impact their wellbeing and their capacity to provide care.

 

The index focuses on levels of cognitive load (associated with strain, and mental energy utilized for coping), analytical thinking (capacity for complex problem solving and higher order executive functioning), anger, fear, anxiety, stress and empathy. More detail on how we infer these measures can be found here.


Since the declaration of the pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11th, 2020 we have seen upward trends in levels of stress, anxiety, fear, cognitive load, and a downward trend in levels of analytical thinking among these healthcare professionals. Empathy levels are quite variable. The index will be updated daily as we continue to track the impact that Covid-19 and other world events are having on front-line healthcare workers and their capacity to provide care.
