The Podcast by KevinMD

Jun 27, 2023

Join us in this episode as we delve into the critical issue of physician burnout and its correlation with the threat of lawsuits in the medical field. Our guest, Howard Smith, an obstetrics-gynecology physician, explores the notion that every doctor is at a 5 percent risk of being sued annually and how this inevitability affects their well-being. Howard will guide us through the four steps of risk management and explain how proactive measures can empower doctors in the face of complications. We'll also discuss the significance of the certified report, a sworn statement prepared by doctors, and its impact on insurance carriers and defense counsel. Discover how risk management offers a tangible solution for both those who believe litigation goes too far and those who feel it falls short. Join us for an eye-opening conversation on physician burnout and the transformative power of risk management in the medical profession.

Howard Smith is an obstetrics-gynecology physician.

He discusses his KevinMD article, "Proactive risk management: a game-changer in preventing physician burnout."

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.
