Empowering Sustainable Primary Care

Throughout the pandemic, the resilience, dedication, and heroism of primary care professionals across the nation was put on full display. But even before the pandemic reshaped the healthcare landscape, there has been a growing consensus around the idea that primary care can and should play a more central role in U.S. healthcare.

EHR Buyer’s Guide

The advances in healthcare EHRs have spurred practice efficiencies, improved care through patient data sharing, and improved workflows within the practice. Technology Advances have also caused some providers to stress over how to pick the right one. At the same time, a purpose-built EHR may be the key to mitigating the increasing rates of provider burnout and making for a financially solvent practice.

Although the increased use of technology, including the requirement to implement it in independent practices to secure certain value-based care reimbursements, has been shown to contribute to the burnout rate, integrated healthcare technology can be the solution needed to help improve and simplify care team workflows, reducing the stressors that contribute to burnout.

For example, the research on physician burnout found that, on a scale of 0 to 100, a 10-point increase in the usability of an electronic health record (EHR) will decrease the odds of physician burnout by 30%.
