Business Insider report lists Wolters Kluwer among healthcare artificial intelligence leaders targeting physician burnout

A new digital health research report from Business Insider Intelligence investigates physician burnout, which has increased dramatically in 2020, fueled by the stress of caring for patients with coronavirus..

According to the report, “AI in Healthcare Administration,” the issue of fatigue impacted 40% of U.S. physicians before COVID-19 and costs U.S. healthcare organizations $4.6 billion per year. As providers look for ways to reduce burnout and cut related costs, many are turning to leaders in healthcare AI technology like Wolters Kluwer, Health, which has widespread experience in anticipating and supporting clinicians’ needs and workflows to speed clinical decision making and ease administrative loads

This report identified several startups and big tech companies developing AI-based healthcare administration solutions with machine learning and natural language processing that are starting to take hold. These advances in clinical workflow automation and clinical documentation are helping clinicians spend more time caring for patients.
