Clinicians burnout in 2021 has reached a crisis point

2 min read

T-Pro is excited for upcoming projects in 2022 and for our expansion in the UK, AUS and NZ markets. Let’s take a moment and review some of the concerning stats from 2021.

No doubt the pandemic is a challenging time for everyone. For Clinicians, the nature of their profession requires them to help people in their weakest states but that’s near impossible if they’re not the best version of themselves.

Healthcare professionals increasingly face depression, high stress, and emotional exhaustion. Each of these severe ailments leads to burnout.

42% of Physicians experience burnout in 2021 (Mayo Clinic) 

A survey of physicians found that 42% experienced symptoms of burnout. The five specialities that ranked the highest were different in 2021 due to the pandemic. The lineup includes critical care at 51%, Rheumatology at 50 and infectious diseases at 49%. 

60% of Clinicians said ‘too many bureaucratic tasks’ causes burnout (LeverageRx)

 Bureaucratic tasks include charting and paperwork. This chews up lots of time for clinicians and prevents them from seeing more patients. 50% of physicians work at least 60 hours a week, with a good chunk of the time allotted to paperwork.

53% of Clinicians with depression said it affected their work in 2021 (Advisory Board)

Only 47% of depressed clinicians said that their mental state doesn’t interfere with patient interactions. But 35% experience more irritation with patients. Another 26% had less motivation to be careful with patient note-taking. Even worse, 14% made mistakes that they wouldn’t normally make.

39% of Clinicians with burnout say they lack resources

Clinicians’ levels of productivity directly affect their psychological state. If clinicians are more productive in their work, they may feel less burnout. 39% credit their burnout to a lack of tools and resources that are necessary to provide high-quality patient care.

It’s time to make eliminating clinician burnout a priority…
