AMA STUDY LOOKS AT SOURCES OF PHYSICIAN DISSATISFACTION
You really care about delivering the best care possible to your patients, and anything that gets in the way really frustrates you. And nothing seems to get in the way more right now than the electronic health record (EHR) beast. Those are the biggest findings in “Factors Affecting Physician Professional Satisfaction and Their Implications for Patient Care, Health Systems and Health Policy,” a RAND Corporation study AMA commissioned. “The AMA is committed to leading a national dialog regarding the major factors driving many physicians to feel increasingly disconnected from what really matters — their patients,” said AMA President Ardis Dee Hoven, MD. For the study, RAND interviewed a wide variety of physicians around the country, including former TMA Board of Trustees member Travis Bias, DO, of Pflugerville.
