Physician burnout is a significant challenge in healthcare today. The root cause is not a lack of resilience among the physicians, but significant dysfunction in the clinical workplace.  Physicians are left struggling to effectively connect with and care for their patients.

In this webinar, Dr. Paul DeChant will discuss a five-step plan to reduce the drivers of burnout, focused on improving the
management system, organizational culture, and clinical workflows in a way that reduces the drivers of burnout while empowering and aligning clinicians across the organization.

Dr. Paul DeChant joined Simpler Healthcare in 2014 as a physician executive with more than 25 years of clinical and management experience in all aspects of medical group governance, with an emphasis on quality improvement, strategic planning, financial growth, acquisitions and Lean workflow redesign. He is an authority on physician burnout, having co-authored the book, “Preventing Physician Burnout: Curing the Chaos and Returning Joy to the Practice of Medicine”, speaking internationally, and blogging regularly at http://www.pauldechantmd.com   From 2009 – 2014 he served as CEO of Sutter Gould Medical Foundation (SGMF), a not-for-profit health care organization dedicated to providing the highest level of patient care. During his tenure with Sutter Health, Dr. DeChant also served as President of the Palomares Division of Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF) and served 4 years as Chair of ACME, Sutter’s Administrative Council of Medical Executives. In those roles DeChant launched programs to drive quality and service improvements and cost reductions throughout the system. He has also held leadership roles at Geisinger Health System, High Country Health Care and Breckenridge Primary Care.
