On this episode of ‘Health Care by the Numbers’ we will dive into the deep end to discuss physician burnout, industry turnover, shortages of nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to successfully overcome today’s challenges. 



Caravan Health Vice President of Client Success, Greg Paris, hosts this episode of ‘Health Care by the Numbers’, and invites Quint Studer, Founder of the Studer Group, to the conversation. Twice named by Modern Healthcare as one of the 100 Most Powerful People in Health Care for his work on institutional health care improvement, Studer’s dynamic style and health care expertise had also led him to be the only health care leader named a Master of Business by Inc. Magazine.

In the past decade we have seen alarming rates of physician burnout – twice that of the general public. Studer published, ‘Healing Physician Burnout: Diagnosing, Preventing, and Treating’, a book that tackles this very real phenomena that is disrupting health care delivery from the inside out. With the COVID-19 pandemic raging in rural and urban communities, our nation’s health care industry is experiencing an all-time high rate of turnover, including a serious shortage in nursing professionals. The National Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a nursing shortage of more than one million professionals by 2024. Studer is a renowned expert on these topics and has recently released a booklet of resources to help health care professionals practice self-care and enable organizations to build trust and embody success.

In addition, Studer’s most recent books, ‘The Busy Leader’s Handbook: How to Lead People and Places that Thrive’ and ‘Building a Vibrant Community: How Citizen-powered Change is Reshaping America’, speaks to his knowledge of how to not only embrace change on an organizational level but to also improve the dynamic and create a foundation for success. Studer can also be heard each week on his podcast, ‘The Busy Leader’s Handbook’ where he hosts leaders from a variety of industries who discuss our nation’s biggest challenges.

Thank you for tuning into today’s episode as Greg Paris and Quint Studer break down the numbers that are disrupting health care.
