It’s been a busy week for us here at Healthcare Scene. We were on the road in Seattle at the SHSMD conference which Colin covered really well over on Hospital EMR and EHR and on HITMC.com. Next week we’re off to Boston for the MEDITECH Physician and CIO Forum and the Connected Health Conference, but you already new that if you track our list of healthcare IT conferences. Lots of exciting things ahead which we’ll be sure to share here and on social media.

That said, it’s time for us to prepare for the weekend with our latest edition of Fun Friday. This week’s entry comes from @DocAroundThClok.

[Hospital boardroom]

CEO: I hear the medical staff & residents are burnt out and in significant debt from grad school. Is there anything we can do to help?

CFO: How about a monthly email asking them to donate to the hospital?

CEO: Gee, I don-

CFO: Weekly email?

CEO: Perfect

Burn out is a real thing and while healthcare administrators aren’t the root of all the burnout, they can certainly contribute to more or less burnout. Hopefully a little laughter on a Friday will contribute to less burnout.
