4 Ways Your Medical Office Can Address Burnout Now

Balance workloads

Work-related stress can manifest into physical and mental illness. Explore resources to offload less-critical duties such as scheduling software or virtual receptionists. What tasks can be automated, standardized and outsourced?

Streamline communication

A disconnect between patients, providers and staff can increase the chances of error and frustration. Consider expanding communication with text, chat and call services to book appointments and relay messages.

Foster safe environments

Physical and emotional safety are important to minimizing burnout. Seek out team-building activities, such as group walks, exercises or yoga. Create an open-door policy where employees can raise concerns or suggestions.

Utilize digital toolkits

Consider utilizing online toolkits and training developed by leading medical associations to assess and manage provider burnout and stress. Medical toolkits tailored for provider burnout include STEPS Forward and Organizational Biopsy, both created by the American Medical Association.3
