Preventing Physician Burnout from Impacting the Patient Experience

Healthcare organizations can establish team-based care models to maximize their existing resources, according to Jack Stockert, the managing director of Strategy and Business Development at Health2047. Team-based care models tap physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and other relevant personnel to share responsibilities and allow all clinicians to work to the top of their skill sets.

“How do we move some of those things off the plates of physicians? What does it mean to be 100 times more productive as a physician?” Stockert posited. “That’s not seeing another two, three, four, five patients in the day. It’s really contemplating a breakthrough in workflows, an ability to let clinicians practice in the highest clinical acuity, and embracing the abilities of those around them.”
