Unveiling the mental health crisis in health care
Join us for a thought-provoking podcast episode as we dive into the critical topic of mental health and suicide among health care providers. Our guests, Jessica Singh, an experienced emergency physician, and Lorenzo Norris, a psychiatrist, provide invaluable insights into the challenges faced by health care professionals and the pressing need for systemic reform. Together, we explore the tragic story of Dr. Lorna Breen, whose death brought attention to the stigma surrounding mental health in the health care system. Discover the barriers that health care providers encounter when seeking mental health services and the alarming prevalence of suicide among nurses and physicians. We also discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on burnout and mental health challenges, as well as the recent legislation, such as the Dr. Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act. Tune in for a compelling conversation that aims to raise awareness and foster change to support the well-being of those who dedicate their lives to caring for others.
They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “Doctors and nurses are dying by suicide, as America’s health care workers call for change.”
The Podcast by KevinMD is brought to you by the Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience.
Ambient intelligence augments human capabilities to make our lives easier. The applications are many, especially in health care. Ambient clinical intelligence is offsetting the most pressing challenges in health care today, such as burnout, physician shortages, physician and patient dissatisfaction, and underperforming financial outcomes, by applying the technology to clinical documentation.
The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, utilizes artificial intelligence and natural language processing to automatically document care. It securely listens to and captures the natural, clinician-patient encounter conversation unobtrusively, and turns that conversation into a clinical note for the clinician’s review and signature directly in the electronic health record. You just talk naturally, and DAX does the rest.
DAX is being used by thousands of physicians across 30 different specialties nationwide. It has already won the Silver Stevie award in the health care technology category and was ranked #1 for improving clinician experience in KLAS’s top 20 emerging solutions.
