HealthDay-Harris Poll reveals 63% of US doctors and nurses suffer job burnout. To alleviate this, healthcare organizations turn to technology. AI reduces burden associated with electronic health records, therefore lowering stress. UC San Diego Health and UNC Health employ AI to streamline online patient communication. On top of aiding patient interactions, it also eases work-life balance by reducing administrative tasks. Other tech solutions include virtual nursing that automates routine tasks, optimizes staff efficiency, and positively impacts patient and nursing satisfaction scores. This mitigates staff shortage and care quality issues as seen by a significant decrease in unnecessary patient transfers by the Guthrie Clinic's virtual care center.
