Physician burnout is a serious concern for provider organizations working to deliver high-quality care as reimbursement declines and regulatory pressures increase. EHR technology was intended to support physicians in providing effective and safe care, but published literature consistently identifies EHR use as a leading contributor to burnout. But things don’t have to stay that way.
Leading health systems, hospitals, and physician groups are realizing the potential of EHR technology to be part of the solution. Using capabilities built into popular EHR systems, provider organizations are able to identify inefficiencies in the use of the technology and tailor education and training that leads to physician mastery of new and existing digital tools. Likewise, these organizations are implementing tools that automate key clinical activities to minimize data entry and enable physicians to focus on their patients.
