"Patient-centered, high-quality health care relies on the well-being, health, and safety of health care clinicians. However, alarmingly high rates of clinician burnout in the United States are detrimental to the quality of care being provided, harmful to individuals in the workforce, and costly. It is important to take a systemic approach to address burnout that focuses on the structure, organization, and culture of health care."
"Taking Action Against Clinician Burnout: A Systems Approach to Professional Well-Being builds upon two groundbreaking reports from the past twenty years, To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System and Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, which both called attention to the issues around patient safety and quality of care. This report explores the extent, consequences, and contributing factors of clinician burnout and provides a framework for a systems approach to clinician burnout and professional well-being, a research agenda to advance clinician well-being and recommendations for the field." -NAM webpage
“Taking time to reattach to work helps our work goals to become more salient, which energizes us to focus. When we consider how to achieve our goals, we become more aware of our autonomy to accomplish them, as well as the resources and people we have supporting us. All of these factors contribute to feeling more inspired and engaged at work—which, other research suggests, is important for productivity.”

“Many a clinician has cursed as they click through multiple screens to enter information. Workflows are getting better at being simpler and faster, but still they add hours to a clinician’s day, taking away valuable time spent interacting with and caring for patients. As the caretakers for people’s health, every interaction a clinician has with an EHR system should provide a clear benefit to their patients.“Patients are still entering the same information on multiple forms and repeatedly explaining symptoms. In some cases, information scrawled on paper patient questionnaires may not be inputted into their digital chart. Deeper interoperability could help patients avoid these frustrating, repetitive interactions and also lead to better, more coordinated care by including more historic information.“Having payer data, such as coverages and reimbursement rates, available at the point of care can give patients and providers more information to make informed decisions. This is especially helpful for patients to understand out-of-pocket costs on treatments outside of their plan coverage.“However, one factor that currently erodes trust is that different functions—administrators, nurses, doctors and payers—may not see the same data set. They each have different views that restrict them from seeing the whole picture, which is an issue especially for value-based partnerships dependent upon more risk sharing.” [emphasis/underline added]
