Clinicians are becoming increasingly anxious and overworked as healthcare organizations worldwide struggle with massive patient backlogs due to the COVID problem. In addition to lowering job satisfaction, burnout can harm patient care quality. According to the COVID-19 tracking study conducted by the British Medical Association (BMA), 40% of doctors suffer from work-related stress, burnout, and anxiety.
The amount of administrative time healthcare staff must spend documenting their work is one of the leading causes of frustration and burnout. Of course, that isn’t the only cause, but it accounts for a significant portion of the disappointment. According to Erik Van Hoeymissen, worldwide business development director at 3M HIS, this difficulty develops when existing clinical documentation systems are not adequately matched to doctors’ workflows.
Clinicians can quickly reduce the time spent manually writing clinical documentation by adapting these tools to their processes. These technologies add an entirely new layer of capabilities, such as computer-assisted physician documentation. In addition, it proactively provides Clinicians with the insights they need when needed by continuously analyzing and monitoring the content created through speech recognition and the content created through other means.
