In the hospital world, the core task is to have the patient in focus. In order for the healthcare staff to give their best effort towards the patients, they need to thrive. To support the wellbeing of their employees, NSR – Næstved, Slagelse and Ringsted Hospital have chosen to offer Howdy as a wellbeing tool to all of their employees.

Howdy Wellbeing uses the scientific framework WHO-5 that has gone through more than 200 scientific studies since professor Per Bech launched it in 1998. The model has proven to be one of the most precise in wellbeing assessment.
In 2018 Per Bech published an article in the Nordic Journal of Psychiatry based on Howdy data. The article concluded that proactive early intervention had a significant positive effect on user’s ability to return to normality after experiencing a drop into low wellbeing.
Howdy Body uses the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire that gives users the possibility of indicating their experienced level of pain in specific regions of their body.
