Welcome to the weekly edition of Healthcare IT Today Bonus Features. This article will be a weekly roundup of interesting stories, product announcements, new hires, partnerships, research studies, awards, sales, and more.

Because there’s so much happening out there in healthcare IT we aren’t able to cover in our full articles, we still want to make sure you’re informed of all the latest news, announcements, and stories happening to help you better do your job.


A report from recruitment firm Jackson Physician Search and MGMA found that physician burnout is bad and getting worse. Nearly two-thirds of physicians surveyed (65%) said they are experiencing burnout, and 35% said their level of burnout has “significantly increased” in 2022. About half of physicians, or 51%, have considered leaving their current employer – in large because they don’t think administrators are doing enough to mitigate burnout or engage with physicians.


Researchers at MIT have found that de-identified patient data runs an extremely low risk of being re-identified in the event of a data breach. The research team found no instances of patient re-identification from publicly available health data over a five-year period – a timeframe in which nearly 100 million patient records were stolen. Study authors concluded that that the potential risk to patient privacy in sharing de-identified data is greatly outweighed by the gains for patients through medical research.
