symplr & the DAISY Foundation partner on nursing “Moments that Matter” video series
Inspired by DAISY Award honorees from three different hospitals, symplr unveiled our Moments that Matter video series at the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference to highlight the powerful impact nurses have on patients, families, and other caregivers and the importance of time.
Research reveals nurses spend only seven hours of a 12-hour shift on direct patient care due to administrative burdens and staff shortages. Our workforce management solutions give time back to clinicians by automating and consolidating processes related to scheduling, timekeeping, recruiting, and clinical communications.
2023 symplr Compass Survey in Healthcare IT News
Clinician burnout is now the primary concern for healthcare organizations in 2024, surpassing financial pressures, according to symplr’s Compass Survey of CIOs and clinicians at top U.S. health systems.
The study, which reveals that the majority of organizations rely on 50+ distinct systems to manage healthcare operations, also identifies a need for closer alignment between CIOs and the clinicians working in hospitals and health systems. An equally troubling finding indicates the disparity between the "haves" and the "have nots" of healthcare is widening, with an urgent need to streamline healthcare operations to improve efficiency while winning back staff.
Addressing the Global Healthcare Issue: Burnout
symplr CEO BJ Schaknowski was a guest on CHIME’s leader-to-leader podcast, hosted by Russ Branzell, where they spoke about the issue of clinician burnout and how it can be addressed through technology with more needing to be done and quickly to retain and support staff. BJ points to symplr’s focus on the healthcare worker while most other companies focus on the patient or create technology without involving clinicians and specializing in healthcare. Our goals include helping the overworked healthcare workforce by reducing burnout with technology to automate processes, integrate systems, and ultimately reduce the time healthcare workers spend at a computer instead of with their patients.
