SEATTLE, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Burnout is rampant among American doctors. One recent survey shows 54% of practicing physicians suffering from at least one burnout symptom (1). Burnout's pervasive negative effects include lower quality of care, patient satisfaction, higher error rates and an organizational culture of resistance and disengagement.
One of the causes of this modern epidemic is twenty years of single-minded industry focus on the Triple Aim – Cost, Quality and Population Health. In 2015 a group of healthcare leaders finally asked the obvious question, "How can our organizations provide high quality medical care if our people are burned out?" The answer revealed healthcare's new Quadruple Aim. (2) In these chaotic times a focus on this fourth aim – the health and wellbeing of all the people providing the care – will make the difference. When physician leaders learn the skills to reduce burnout and build a more supportive culture – actually living the Quadruple Aim – better care and satisfaction, fewer errors and more engagement will be the result, naturally and automatically.
