Episode 9 of The DocBuddy Journal - "Universal Healthcare Doesn't Fix Physician Burnout"
Here's what to expect on this week's episode of the DocBuddy Journal:
Over the weekend, the NYT ran an op-ed titled "Doctors Aren’t Burned Out From Overwork. We’re Demoralized by Our Health System." and it caught the eye of the DocBuddy team.
Where the expectation by those in Health IT would be that the "system" addresses workflows that are not optimized for physicians, the author instead chooses to address the US healthcare system as a whole while calling for universal healthcare as the solution to burnout.
An attempt is made to connect data-derived contributors to burnout to the authors assertions.
A quick look across the pond at England's NHS: the current burnout sentiment even in socialized medicine.
