In a recent poll, staffing emerged as the most pressing concern for medical practices in the United States in 2023. The country’s healthcare system is grappling with significant provider shortages, exacerbated by the lasting impact of Covid-19 and the needs of an aging population. Without swift action, the American Medical Association warns of a potential shortage of up to 124,000 physicians within the next 12 years. To address this crisis effectively, it is essential to automate administrative processes and reduce the burden they place on healthcare professionals.
