Standardized quality measures could eliminate physician burnout
Many doctors feel burned out. That's because they spend too much time documenting care in order to comply with different quality reporting requirements. But health care leaders can help, according to Dr. Peter Ubel. He says they can help eliminate physician burnout by working with payers to cut the number of quality measures that clinicians track, developing some level of uniformity across payers on the measures being tracked, fully leveraging the electronic health record to automate more tasks, and striking a better balance between time spent tracking measures and time spent with patients.
