The Hidden Healthcare Issue: Burnout

Burnout is defined as “a longterm stress reaction marked by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a lack of personal accomplishment.” In 2015, physician engagement was identified as the number one opportunity to improve the U.S. healthcare system and CEOs’ top strategic priority. In contrast, today it has become a focus on provider burnout. Clinicians are becoming increasingly apathetic during interactions due to caregiver fatigue and subsequently burnout. This leads to an inability to fully engage with patients. August 1, 2019

Transparency best practices: A conversation with Andy Ibbotson

Transparency is also extremely important for healthcare branding: 77% of patients begin their search for a new provider online, and almost all of them want to see verified reviews from other patients before they’ll book an appointment. By enabling organizations to publish verified patient reviews on their own websites, NRC Health’s Transparency solution gives health systems a way to proactively manage their brand, and to offer the content patients want to see.
