Practice Transformation: Measure

Measuring physician burnout, organizational efficiency and team culture is a key first step for health systems to improve professional satisfaction and team well-being. To support health systems in identifying key drivers of organizational stress, the AMA provides complimentary assessment services to organizations nationwide.

Physician burnout is largely attributed to organizational and systemic factors. Therefore, solutions must be identified and developed at the systems level. By measuring, organizations can (1) understand unique challenges to physician and care team well-being in their system and (2) develop strategies and solutions that can be targeted to the distinctive needs of their organization, physicians and care teams.

AMA’s work in practice transformation aims to create the conditions where joy, purpose and meaning are possible for physicians and other health professionals.

Collaborating to improve physician well-being



The Organizational Biopsy™ (Org Bx) (PDF) is an assessment tool and a set of services to support organizations in holistically measuring and taking action to improve the health of their organization. The Org Bx provides a comprehensive assessment for health systems across four domains:

  • Organizational Culture (leadership, teamwork, trust, etc.)
  • Practice Efficiency (team structure, team stability, workflows, etc.)
  • Self-Care (post-traumatic stress, post-traumatic growth, work-life balance, etc.)
  • Retention (work intentions)

From professional burnout assessments to targeted intervention strategies, the AMA is pleased to support health care systems across the country with guided and validated solutions.
