Physician burnout is an epidemic in the U.S. health care system, with 44% of physicians reporting signs of burnout such as emotional exhaustion and depersonalization at least once per week.
The significant time spent on non-patient-facing tasks in the clinician’s workday contributes heavily to burnout.
Saving time for physicians and other team members is crucial—but this cannot be accomplished by simply telling physicians to become more efficient during patient visits or when writing notes. Physicians are already trained to be efficient and practice good time management skills. Therefore, time-saving efforts need to come from the top down: from the level of practice or organizational leaders who can effect large-scale change.
