Using the right EHR allows physicians to combat the #1 source of their frustrations: a lack of time. A shortage of physician time has negative implications for all stakeholders in healthcare: the patient, the practice, and the provider. The following stats about physician satisfaction are derived from survey responses and reflect the fact that a lack of time is hurting providers. Did you know that:
- 80% of physicians report feeling overextended with no time to see additional patients
- 49% of physicians often or always experience feelings of burnout
- Only 37% of physicians describe their feelings about the future of the medical profession as positive
The previously mentioned lack of time is driven, in part, by the ever-increasing administrative burden placed on physicians and their practices.
