AMA honors 72 organizations for promoting healthcare worker well-being

The American Medical Association honored 72 healthcare organizations for their efforts to promote the well-being of healthcare workers and reduce physician burnout. The organization unveiled the list in an Oct. 3 news release as recipients of the 2023 Joy in Medicine Health System Recognition Program. 

Candidates were evaluated based on organizational achievement and effort in six competency areas: assessment, commitment, efficiency of practice environment, teamwork, leadership and support. Each area was evaluated through self-assessment and supporting documentation. To be considered for recognition, the organization must have more than 100 physicians and/or advanced practice providers.
