The results of a US-based survey(1) of 15,000 physicians across 29 specialties showed that 44% of all physicians surveyed were burnt out, including 43% of cardiologists.

According to the study, the top burnout contributors were “by far, having too many administrative tasks, working long hours and working with EHRs.”

72% of cardiologists, the 3rd highest percentage, reported working more than 51 hours a week. One cardiologist quoted in the survey said, “It (burnout) has made me plan for an earlier, more austere retirement.”

31% of all physicians said that they alleviated burnout by working fewer hours, while 21% said they “made workflow or staff changes in my practice to ease up on my workload.”

A major factor in cardiologist burnout is that clinicians are overwhelmed by the administrative paperwork and data entry caused by the  tremendous amount of data being transmitted from today’s implantable cardiac devices.
