A Case Study

20 inpatient and outpatient clinicians from one hospital system each received pre and post FourCore surveys, as well as individual coaching and group facilitations within a 90-day period.


Burnout risk was reduced from 2.6 to 1.33 as measured by the Mayo Clinic's Well-Being Index.  There was statistically significant improvement in the FourCore outcomes of Leadership, Innovation Capacity, Learning Capacity, and Resilience, as well as shared ownership between administration and physicians regarding existing influencers and actions for improving organizational resilience.

Why popular efforts to address the problem fall short

Focus is on addressing symptoms, not the underlying causes of stress and burnout. Programs implemented to reduce EHR data entry clicks for clinicians, when the task might have been better handled by others.
Efforts address clinicians separately from the environment they work in. Helping burnt-out clinicians but ignoring the stressors added by the work environment.
Typical initiatives don't involve clinicians, but rather focus on "fixing" them. Burnout cannot be addressed with programs mandated by the administration - and without the input of doctors, nurses, and staff.
Though well intended, many offerings just miss the mark. Expecting overworked clinicians to participate in lunchtime meditation sessions is probably unrealistic and more frustrating than helpful.
