Wearables Predict Stress in Frontline Healthcare Workers

Evidation Health

About the Project

Our sponsor, Evidation Health, helps connect individual participants to research studies. They partner with leading healthcare companies to analyze the collected clinical data and publish rigorous studies. We are using data collected in “The Stress and Recovery in Frontline COVID-19 Health Care Workers Study.” Daily notifications prompted 365 participants to complete tasks through a REDCap study app including a Demographic Survey and a Daily Stress Measure and Work Shift Details survey. Our project objectives consist of two parts: The first part is to identify the main factors of stress (duration of sleep in different stages, heart rate, respiratory rate, and levels of oxygen saturation); and the second part is to predict whether a participant is stressed given those factors.
