Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Galileo 904

Description

This session will provide an overview of the impact of the EHR on burnout, beginning with specific explanations of how the EHR relates to burnout manifestations and drivers. Many provider organizations have taken a variety of approaches to addressing EHR impacts. The speakers will describe the experience of the Sutter Gould Medical Foundation as it implemented changes to clinical workflows and to the user interface, significantly reducing EHR-related physician burnout. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion in which attendees share the work they have done on EHR impacts in their organizations. Attendees should come away with an in-depth understanding of the drivers and manifestations of burnout, and a set of action items that they can implement in their own organizations to address this challenge.
