From a physician who comes from a family of physicians to a wife and mother turned advocate against physician burnout, two people whose lives have been personally changed because of physician burnout share their perspectives on an issue affecting almost half of today\u2019s physicians.Provider Perspective: Solving Physician Burnout with Work-Life Balanceby Noreen Butte, MD, part of the HIMSS Physician CommitteeComing from a family of physicians and being one myself, I have seen the demands that are being put on physicians increase tremendously. With the disruption of work-life balance, more and more physicians are reaching the point of burnout.Primarily, the cause of physician burnout in today\u2019s environment is the loss of control on how physicians practice medicine. Taking care of patients is a complex process. Every physician practices medicine in their own unique manner while following the same set of primary guidelines they learned and the skills they developed after practicing hundreds of hours to become a physician.Even though there are many factors that lead to the state of physician burnout and are contributing to this reality, I would like to focus on technology as this is an important contributing factor.Technology that should make physicians\u2019 lives easier has made it more cumbersome. The one glove fits all methodology forces physicians to practice medicine according to the unnatural workflow within their prospective electronic medical records.
