Provider burnout is a national, complex and systemic issue. Medicine is facing an era of rapid and continuous change in nearly every way: payment models, technology, standards for clinical practice, and consumer driven healthcare. As we navigate in an increasingly stressful environment while attempting to continue the same level of academic productivity, UNC, like all institutions across the country, has witnessed increasing rates of provider burnout. To combat this issue, UNC has adopted the Quadruple Aim: a focus on enhancing patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs, and improving provider work life. The way forward requires novel approaches that integrate and add wellness as a critical metric in our collective performance as an institution.
