Tackling Healthcare Worker Burnout: How Steegle.One Intranet Can Help

Introduction

Health care workers in the U.S. have faced increased stress due to systemic changes in care delivery, amplified by the lingering impacts of COVID-19. Burnout poses a serious threat to the resiliency of hospitals and health systems. Steegle is currently building an intranet for a hospital in Texas, leveraging our extensive experience with several clinics and autism specialists. We understand the critical role an effective intranet can play in addressing these challenges. Here’s how Steegle.One can help mitigate healthcare worker burnout.

Understanding Healthcare Worker Burnout

Burnout among healthcare workers is characterized by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a reduced sense of personal accomplishment. Factors contributing to burnout include long hours, high patient loads, and the emotional toll of dealing with illness and death. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these issues, with long-term effects on general well-being and persistent challenges related to long COVID, even four years down the line. This underscores the urgent need for solutions that support healthcare workers’ mental health and well-being.
