Reorienting the U.S. Healthcare System Around Relationships to Achieve the Quadruple Aim

Christine A. Sinsky, MD, VP, Professional Satisfaction, American Medical Association

Over the past several decades, healthcare has increasingly been conceptualized as a series of independent transactions that can be distributed nearly randomly among healthcare workers: The resulting fragmentation of care is ubiquitous and has been at odds with the fundamental relational nature of medical care.

How would healthcare differ if the infrastructures, policies and technologies upon which care delivery is based were reoriented to prioritize relationships at every level? In this presentation, drawing from the commentary, Radical Reorientation of the US Health Care System Around Relationships, wherein 3 foundational recommendations are presented: 1. Structurally prioritize continuity of relationships, 2. Make room for relationships by removing sludge from the system, and 3. Realign reimbursement and research to prioritize relationships. Implementation tactics are provided to guide organizational leaders, policy makers, technology vendors and other stakeholders. After the session, you will be able to:

  • Describe one consequence of a transactional conceptualization of healthcare
  • Identify at least 2 tactical approaches to prioritize relationships within the physical structure, team structure, scheduling approach and/or technology within a work unit
  • Plan to bring home at least 1 change to remove sludge from the daily work of clinicians in your unit
  • Become inspired about the possibilities of reclaiming the joy in medicine

How AI Will Influence Burnout and Culture in the Modern Workplace

Joshua Proulx

As AI becomes increasingly integrated into the modern workforce, leaders and staff face an uncertain future. While a global impact brought with it increased competition for staff, inflationary pressures to drive up wages, and cultural changes such as quiet quitting, AI holds the potential to alleviate some of these pressures by automating tasks, acting as a virtual assistant, and in some cases completely taking over roles. Many employees harbor fears that the rise of AI technology could lead to job displacement, creating uncertainty about their future employment and career stability. The time-consuming benefits of AI could reduce workforce burnout while simultaneously increasing it due to fears of workforce reduction. What will the modern workforce culture look like in the coming AI age when AI becomes our assistant, our co-worker, our replacement, and maybe even our manager? In this session, you will:

  • Gain better insight into the capabilities of AI in the modern workforce
  • Understand the potential impacts AI will have on workforce culture and burnout levels
  • Learn about workforce cultural implications as AI agents become co-workers and even managers

How Do YOU Feel?: Recognizing Burnout In Ourselves, While Treating Others For It

Jessi Gold, MD, MS, Chief Wellness Officer, University of Tennessee System; Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Tennessee Health Science Center

In this session, Dr. Jessi Gold walks through her own personal journey with burnout as a practicing psychiatrist, assistant professor, and wellness leader. During the pandemic, Dr. Gold “wrote off” what she was experiencing as a medical condition or “just how I should feel working this hard,” and medical culture (perfectionism, for one thing) contributed to those thoughts. Further, Dr. Gold will discuss her own self-stigma, and how, ironically, she needed to seek outside help to discover that she was experiencing burnout. She’ll explore how she now copes and deals with burnout, including simply admitting that the job will always have an effect on you. This session aims to:

  • Describe one story of burnout and self-stigma
  • Identify aspects of medical culture that serve as barriers to help seeking
  • Explain ways to minimize the impact of burnout, including social support and vulnerability
