Healthcare Workers Wellness Index

Receptiviti's Healthcare Workers Wellness Index measures the daily emotional and psychological health of doctors and nurses by continuously analyzing daily submissions and comments by thousands of self-identified doctors and nurses in their posts on Reddit. 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. All of these measures are available in the Receptiviti API.
