Drive provider retention with 5 new ideas

Provider burnout is top of mind and one of the largest challenges facing healthcare today. Learn 5 new ideas that can help solve burnout and help you keep a healthy provider network.

The past three years have been challenging for health systems of all sizes, and for providers, the uncertainty and stress has taken its toll mentally, physically and emotionally. As a result, the prevalence of provider burnout is intensifying.

5 ways to solve for provider burnout

We hear it loud and clear: different people have different needs. Figuring out a way to be flexible but scalable and financially sustainable in your business is how we're trying to fit that perfect space between the organization's needs and your clinicians' needs.

Flexibility leads to scalability

Work is better with friends

For virtual organizations, determine how clinicians can come together and chat like they would in a physician lounge (in more traditional practice) and strive to create that sense of community. It's something we have to be much more intentional about in a fully virtual world.

Experimentation is key

For healthcare leaders, look at how you structure your care delivery teams and support the clinician's practice to allow them to practice at the top of their license. Finally, hold consistent, active conversations to stay on top of their needs.

Non-traditional benefits lead to retention

The key for healthcare organizations is to try to meet clinicians where they are and help to provide not only the flexible working environment but other tools that will aid them in continuing to be healthy.

Advocacy is critical

Finally, providing care is critical to reduce the types of barriers that lead to overworking, exhaustion and burnout. It’s up to healthcare businesses and organizations to be the voice of their providers and advocate for their health and wellbeing to abate burnout and potential retention challenges.
