"When we let technology do what it does best, humans can focus on doing what they do best."

While jobs in healthcare have always had their unique stressors, there is an alarming increase in the levels of burnout from 30% to 50%, to now 40% to 70%. Not to mention, since the start of the pandemic, a reported 60% to 75% of clinicians have experienced symptoms of exhaustion, depression, sleep disorders, and PTSD.
With burnout on the rise, healthcare professionals are leaving their positions, creating a concerning labor shortage that is rocking the healthcare industry. At the end of last year, there were 11 million unfilled healthcare positions. Looking forward, a recent data analysis found that a critical shortage of an estimated 3.2 million healthcare workers is possible by 2026.
We are at a pivotal juncture. Solving the burnout problem is about more than simply keeping healthcare workers in their jobs. Ultimately, it is about mitigating attrition by reimagining healthcare delivery to pave the way for healthier staffing models, workflows and processes where every individual can reconnect with their passion and purpose – and thrive.
