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.

“With the new scheduler and EHR, we get a lot of the information up front, so when the patient comes in, unless they have something changed insurance-wise they’re already verified and ready to be taken back right away, it also makes it much easier for billing.”

“If you want to be focused on your practice and not worry about infrastructure, this is it. It’s transparent, just like when I plug something into the wall I’m not worried about what the voltage is and what’s the availability; it’s just there—like AdvancedMD. It does it so well sometimes you don’t appreciate it until you really think about it.”

“Having integrated practice management and EHR is absolutely wonderful, you don’t have to flip back and forth between systems—all of your information is at hand when needed.”
