⚾ Reducing Epic Clinician Burnout One Base Hit at a Time ⚾
Health Systems Champion Small Wins for Medication Management Within Their EHRs

Home runs are exciting, but they’re not the only way to win a baseball game. Similarly, when it comes to AI in healthcare, dramatic advancements get a lot of attention, but they’re not the only way to improve efficiency.

“AI or any informatics intervention doesn’t need to be a swing-for-the-fences home run.
