"Physicians today are confronting yet another epidemic, one that affects doctors directly and is not caused by a virus. It is the result of the 'patient portal' through which patients send typed messages directly to their physicians. Though the portal has benefits, anecdotal experience suggests that high message volume is having a deleterious effect on doctors’ blood pressure."
Paul L. Fine is an internal medicine physician.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "What to do when doctors develop 'portal hypertension.'"
The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience.
With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
