Recruiting and retaining providers is a common topic among rural health leaders. Unfortunately, so is physician burnout. Have you ever wondered if there was a connection between the use of electronic health records and physician burnout in rural America? As it turns out, there is. And that is what we’re talking about with Dr. Danielle Terry, Director of Behavioral Science at Guthrie Family Medicine.
“We might want to think about how we integrate our care in the world and really, in the United States, and how we integrate behavioral health because we are going to have a problem.”
