Managing Population Health and Avoiding Physician Burnout: Can You Do Both?

Share this post:

Managing the care of a population comes with a unique set of challenges. Providers and their care teams must continue to care for the patients who come in regularly for appointments, and also take responsibility for patients who do not come into the office.  Add in documenting patients’ visits, monitoring patients between encounters, and you have a situation that could lead to burnout.

A large and growing opportunity exists to innovate and refine systems to increase care team efficiency. With the expanded responsibility of caring for a population of patients comes a need for simple, automated, yet personalized solutions.

Listen to this replay of the webinar “Managing Population Health and Avoiding Physician Burnout: Can You do Both?” with Paul DeChant, MD, MBA, Senior Advisor at IBM Watson Health and Bridget Searles, RN, MS, Clinical Sales Consultant at IBM Watson Health.

  • How a Lean management system can support care teams
  • The importance of huddles at the executive, physician and front-line levels
