The healthcare industry is witnessing physicians increasingly leaving the profession, with 47% of doctors citing burnout as the reason for their departure. The long hours, lack of family time, and increasing administrative burdens push them past their physical and mental limits. Healthcare organizations need to find effective ways to alleviate this burden and promote well-being so that today’s physicians can provide the best outcomes for patients.
One method to improving burnout is by readjusting the way in which physicians are scheduled for their day-to-day and on-call shifts. The current traditional methods establish a strained atmosphere between physicians and schedulers as tensions run high and patience runs low. However, with automated physician scheduling software, staff can turn complex spreadsheets into fair and balanced schedules, saving time and improving provider satisfaction.
