The National Academy of Medicine’s (NAM) Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience (Clinician Well-Being Collaborative) hosted a virtual convening on Health Technology to Reduce Burnout: Bridging Islands of Innovation for the Future, on April 8, 2022.
Technology can be both a source and solution to the challenges of prior authorization, in-basket management, credentialing, and documentation burden that are contributing to clinician burnout. The NAM Clinician Well-Being Collaborative assembled industry leaders, policymakers, and clinician stakeholders to highlight the conditions for successful implementation of creative solutions at the health care organization and national levels.
The free public convening aimed to:
- Highlight innovations with promise for rapid implementation and broad scale that are available now; note the persistent barriers to penetrating real-world small and large practice settings to be resolved; and identify forward-looking technologies to reduce provider burden
- Examine data that illustrate technology related pain points for frontline care providers and that serve as opportunities for innovation
- Learn from implementers who have successfully deployed technologies at their institutions to reduce provider burden and who can spotlight technologies in development in a variety of practice settings
- Discuss the role of federal barriers and incentives in catalyzing implementation of technology innovations to reduce provider burden on a national scale
This meeting was second in a series of convenings hosted by the Mobilizing National Stakeholders Working Group of the Clinician Well-Being Collaborative. Learn more: nam.edu/CW
