Why the Shift to Value-Based Care Makes Care Team Burnout a More Critical Issue Than Ever Before
Quality-of-care impact becomes increasingly important with the shift to value-based care. Despite the significance of nursing burnout to healthcare’s top and bottom line, many organizations lack a formal retention or satisfaction program for nurses.
With increasing acuity in hospitals and ambulatory centers, case mix index is going up dramatically, leading to more stringent provider/nurse to patient staffing ratios. Besides the changing dynamic of healthcare delivery, many organizational factors, including communication, governance, and training, can have a significant impact on overall care team satisfaction and burnout.
Optimize your existing EHR governance and change management approach to create a culture of clinical/operations-led improvements and a culture of collaboration towards a common goal.
Provide enhanced technology training and communication using tools like eLearning, regular EHR update newsletters, and examples of how technology improves care quality, efficiency, access to care, or reduces costs.
