The Physician Burnout Matrix Report contains over 117 ways healthcare organizations can keep doctors engaged and enjoying medicine.
SEATTLE, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – With physician burnout at epidemic levels and a tidal wave of newly insured patients on the way, physicians and healthcare organizations are stretched to the breaking point.
The Physician Burnout Prevention Matrix Report from Dike Drummond MD, CEO of TheHappyMD.com, was developed in response to this crisis in the front lines of healthcare. This free report is a comprehensive resource of methods to lower stress, prevent burnout and create a healthier workplace for physicians and staff. The report is the playbook for a balanced approach to physician wellness with tools for both individual doctors and organizations.
Research shows an average of one in three physicians suffers from burnout on any given office day and, in a 2012 study, 60% of doctors said they would quit if they “had the means.” Healthcare organizations are struggling to keep the doctors healthy and patients happy. Adding to these pressures, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act is projected to produce a physician shortage of 91,500 by 2020.
“These days the physicians are often the canary in the coal mine of medicine and that has to change. The most successful healthcare organizations in the years ahead will be those who take excellent care of their providers and staff. These hospitals and groups will understand that physician satisfaction is the only true foundation for consistent patient satisfaction. Here are over 117 ways to get started,” Drummond says.
Each of the Matrix tools stands on its own and will lower doctors’ stress at work or increase their ability to recharge while off the job. Dr. Drummond provides in-depth implementation support to put the Matrix tools into effect with both individual coaching and organizational consulting.
