The recent survey just revealed that cardiologists in the USA spend about 6 hours in a day on EHR related activities and 5 hours on their practice and 3 additional hours outside the office. This has become a serious concern about the growing burden of the influx of the workflow results in burnout and in major of the cases cardiologist suicides.
Also; scientific research has demonstrated that a “burnout” presents itself in 3 symptoms such as personal accomplishments, depersonalization, and exhaustion.
How Will You Know Whether You Are A Burnout?
Cardiologists in order to combat and prevent the tough times at work, it is important to figure out when to draw a line. How will you differentiate between a serious burnout and everyday stress?
Below Are Few Signals Which Help You To Figure Out Your Burnout Condition:
- You Are Beginning To See Your Practice As A Chore
- There’s A Lot Of Paperwork Piling Up
- Your Claims Are In Mess
- There’s A Lot To Look After When Your Practice Gets Over
- Your Patients Doesn’t Interest You Anymore
- Simply Getting Through The Day Is What You Are Looking Forward To
Does this to be you? To reduce the revenue burnout; there’s a tech remedy that requires to implement.
How can we reduce revenue burnout? Cardiologists need to address certain pain-points such as the high number of regulations. Without any intervention to improve and simplify workflow, burnout and disenchantment will get worse.
As such, the hours are long and stress for any cardiologist can be high. However, the right risk management technology can streamline and automate a multitude of their tasks involved with managing and administering claims — freeing up adjusters time their sake and will benefit from the technology implementation.
For Instance, Healthcare Technology Can Help Reduce Revenue Burnout By:
- Create a paperless claims process that eliminates time spent shuffling paper around, as well as reduces redundant data entry. Electronic incident forms can be automatically converted into electronic claims forms with just a few clicks. Relevant data is auto-populated instead of manually re-entered by a claims professional.
- Offer one central repository for all claims data and communications regarding claims — reducing time-consuming back and forth communication regarding claims in one-off emails and phone calls that are difficult to track.
- Automate a wide variety of tasks, including creating and sending first and subsequent reports of injuries to states in a compliant fashion; processing payments; and assigning and tracking claims-related tasks throughout the organization. Certain data inputs trigger these predetermined workflows in the system, alleviating adjusters from having to drive any or all processes on their own accord.
- Simplify report creation and sharing with automatic data visualization tools; regularly scheduled data feeds so all claims data is automatically uploaded and reflects real-time information; and dashboards that allow a variety of users to see information in a variety of formats without the having to create unique one-off reports time and again.
- Such capabilities aren’t mere bells and whistles — or just “nice to haves” — attached to risk management technology. They are actually time-saving solutions (and only a small sample, at that) that help solve for the problem of having an overburdened workforce.
Technology Can Go On In Adding Real Value By:
- Prioritizing Potentially Expensive Claims And Intervening Early Before Costs Spirals
- Detecting Fraud When Claim Costs Or Details Don’t Align With Similar Legitimate Claims
- Provide Prompt And Helpful Customer Service To Claimants That Benefits All Stakeholders
Healthcare technology’s ability to automate so much of the claims administration and management process, as well as enable an insightful analysis of claims programs, really does support claims adjusters needs to have more work-life balance and meaningful work. Moreover, technology can automate so many processes that seasoned adjusters know simply from memory and repetition, it can reduce the amount of time spent training new employees.
This leaves more time for training in areas that might keep younger employees more engaged in their work — like predicting and then prioritizing outlier claims that could become costly or that are actually fraudulent; accurately estimating how long an injured worker will be away from work; or detecting general claims trends that could be impacting a business. This will help cardiologists with the more robust workforce in place and minimize the possible damage.
