Gary Mangiofico Authors Opinion Piece in Health Data Management on Healthcare Workforce Burnout
Health Data Management featured an opinion piece written by Gary Mangiofico which investigates healthcare employee burnout as a barrier to high-impact healthcare.
According to an online survey administered by the American Medical Association, 44 percent of physicians report high levels of emotional exhaustion. In order to achieve an optimal state of care delivery, Gary suggest healthcare managers must do a better job addressing the stressors inherent in the healthcare system and provide better care for their own workforce.
The opinion piece provides recommendations to healthcare organizations and how they can relieve pressures and stressors that their workforce is facing. Gary stresses the importance of why a “healthy” workplace should be a top priority for managers. “A healthy workplace enhances patient safety, facilitates better quality of care, reduces costs, and drives a system of care that leverages efficiencies by multiple stakeholders. In addition, a healthy workforce contributes to organizational health and well-being. Conversely, a burned out workforce can lead to more medical errors, increased costs, and decreased patient satisfaction and can result in the destruction of care organizations.” Read more.
