6 Tips to Quench Physician & Billing Staff Burnout

eGuide

A recent study of nearly 7,000 physicians found that half of American doctors exhibit symptoms of burnout. A previous Mayo Clinic study found a similar disturbingly high incidence of physician burnout: 54% of doctors reported experiencing at least one symptom of burnout from the Maslach Burnout Inventory, a validated tool for measuring burnout.

While not specifically included in these studies, mounting evidence also suggests that other providers, and clinical and billing staff, may suffer similar effects from today’s high-stress healthcare delivery environment. A recent study by Compdata reveals that healthcare employee turnover has remained at record levels for several years running.

Even more alarming, the physician suicide rate is now much higher than the general public’s – even exceeding that of combat veterans. Whether you’re involved in an in-house or outsourced billing operation, you will likely deal with the trickle-down effects of escalating physician and staff burnout.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
