Batch Processing and Patient Flow – Get Home On Time This Week

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Batch Processing, Patient Flow and the science of how to Get Home On Time

Do you find yourself spending too much time on things that have nothing to do with seeing patients – and then getting home later than you would like?

Do you notice that for every 15 minutes you spend with a patient you spend WAY more than that messing around in the EMR and being distracted by things like prescription refills, test results and a hundred other forms of two bit clerical work in your day?

Does your organization expect you to access your EMR from home to complete chart notes in the evenings after you have tucked your kids into bed? ARRRGGGGHHH !   :-(

I wish I had a chance to shadow you in your office, because there are a number small changes you can make right now that will shave hours off of your “non-clinical activities”.

They don’t teach these things in residency … so let me share the top two tools I have found to get you home on time – with your charts done – more often.

Physician Leadership: Power Up your Monthly Staff Meeting

How can you get your team to carry some of the load, smooth out your patient flow and make sure your systems are constantly improving?

The answer to those questions is in this week’s physician leadership video lesson.

This video focuses on how you power up your monthly staff meeting by asking 3 simple but powerful questions. You stop “giving orders” and focus on asking questions and watch your team step up and do some of the heavy lifting from now on.

Watch until the end where I show you a 2 Minute Team Venting process for those times when the group simply must let off some steam before they can focus.

NOTE:

This is just one of 48 video, audio and document resources in the world's first Smart Phone APP to Prevent Physician Burnout
