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.
