Here’s the list of physician burnout items for those following along at home:

  • Patient Generated Data
  • Quality Metrics
  • Other Health Professionals
  • Telemedicine
  • Lack of Genomic Knowledge
  • Reimbursement
  • Retail Based Clinics
  • EHR Frustration
  • Transparency Office Notes
  • Algorithms
  • Super and Cloud Computing
  • Scorecards
  • Online Health Social Networks
  • Patient Satisfaction
  • Online Reviews; Getting Yelped

Was there something left off the list? Do we really need to add any more to the list to understand why physicians are getting burnt out? Do you see any relief on the horizon?
