Governmental regulations are getting more strict. Organizations are changing systems and becoming more technical. Reimbursement policies are constantly changing. These - among other challenges - all add up to a volatile state of healthcare, and a trickle-down effect has had an impact on healthcare professionals. The strain of current events has led to unprecedented cases of burnout, career implications, and even physician suicide.
The Physician Well-Being Index launches a new approach to physician well-being. The first step in addressing physician burnout and improving well-being is to assess and acknowledge the current state of burnout. Physicians tend to avoid reporting burnout or even discussing the issue within the workplace as there is a perceived stigma of failure, career repercussions, and other negative consequences.
Burnout is not only detrimental to physicians on a personal and professional level, but also to the entire institution. Burnout causes depression, decreased quality of life, substance abuse, and even personal harm among individuals. From an organizational standpoint, it leads to decreased patient care, potential on-the-job error, and high staff turnover.
Using rigorous development and a multi-step validation process, the Physician Well-Being Index was invented by physicians at the Mayo Clinic to evaluate multiple dimensions of distress. Since, they have been validated by various publications and used by more than 35,000 medical professionals.
Once you have a cost estimate, you can print or share your estimate to plan for future planning purposes.
You will get instant access to the Well-Being Index demo account to test the software as different types of users. We will also send you a confirmation email with the link to the demo account for future access.
