Burnt out? Just hire a scribe, study suggests

Doctors report it cuts unpaid working time and increases satisfaction

Doctor burnout is a global issue. And e-health is a major factor, with US studies showing that doctors spend two hours on the computer for every one hour of actual patient care.


This will be no shock to Aussie doctors. But how can the problem be fixed?

It’s simple, according to JAMA Internal Medicine. Just give every doctor a “medical scribe” to do their computer work for them.
