Connecting Providers Forum: Healthcare Is Scorching Its Providers: The Burnout Epidemic
Friday, October 27th – 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Provider burnout is at an all-time high. Two thirds of family physicians report at least one element of burnout. Some specialties suffer higher burnout rates than others. Many factors contribute including growing regulatory pressures, inefficient EHRs, emphasis on RVUs, poor workflows, and work-life imbalance. Dr. Steven Waldren, Director of the Alliance for eHealth Innovation of the American Academy of Family Physicians will discuss the impact of burnout on healthcare providers and ways to avoid it. We will then have an open forum with GE Healthcare exploring how Centricity can assist providers to lessen the burden of EHRs on burnout.
