Public health requires collective courage

“To create a healthier, more just, and more equitable world, we must confront the truth, and that requires an act of collective courage. Perhaps there needs to be a whole new consciousness that abandons ideas of reforms and instead labors a social transformation toward liberation. There cannot be effective solutions that expand globally in the public health sphere if there isn’t an effort to shift the way we think about the kind of power that is needed to create a world worth living in.”

Ira Memaj is a public health educator.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “The local and global concerns of COVID-19.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.

At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.

Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR. Visit nuance.com/daxinaction to learn more.
