This is the first meeting of the Committee on Systems Approaches to Improve Patient Care by Supporting Clinician Well-Being. The committee will examine components of the clinical training and work environment that can contribute to clinician burnout in a variety of care settings, as well as potential systems interventions to mitigate those outcomes. The committee will identify promising tools and approaches to support clinician well-being, identify gaps in the evidence base, and propose a research agenda to address areas of uncertainty. In developing its report, the committee will consider key components of the health care system, including:

  • factors that influence clinical workflow, workload, and human-systems interactions;
  • the training, composition, and function of interdisciplinary care teams;
  • the ongoing movement toward outcomes-based payment and quality improvement programs;
  • current and potential use and impact of technologies and tools such as electronic health records (EHRs) and other informatics applications; and
  • regulations, guidance, policies, and accreditation standards that define clinical documentation and coding requirements, as well as institutional expectations and interpretations of those requirements.
