Full Description

A workflow and process module presented by the American Medical Association.Unnecessary tasks have introduced a heavy burden into the daily workload of physicians and other clinicians and are thought to be at least partially responsible for physician burnout. Electronic health record (EHR) systems in particular have created significantly more work for physicians.

Learn how to create a simple program where suggestions for change can be solicited and effectively carried through in your practice.
