AMIA 25x5: Reducing Documentation Burden

 View Only

The burden of clinical documentation on professionals has had a proven negative impact on health. This burden leads to a variety of negative outcomes including clinician burnout and decreased job satisfaction, and increased medical errors and hospital-acquired conditions.  In 2021, stakeholders throughout the healthcare community collaborated to consider strategies to reduce the burden of clinical documentation by 75% within four years. The “Executive Summary” and “Summary Report” describing this work includes current challenges, exemplars, and 82 specific calls to action. To establish strategies and approaches to reduce documentation burden on U.S. clinicians, Columbia University, Vanderbilt University, and the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) through support from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) convened decision-makers and influencers representing clinical settings, academia, industry, government, payers, professional organizations, and patients participated in a symposium series featuring more than 30 presentations from stakeholders across healthcare ecosystem.  Next steps for AMIA include convening a network of allies and creating working groups from national health professional organizations to execute a national strategy for implementing and institutionalizing these changes to benefit clinicians’ well-being and patient care.
