About Joy Energy Time
Healthcare Is An Industry In Crisis
Healthcare provider burnout. It is the silent, disastrous, and non-quantifiable crisis in the healthcare industry. It affects provider mental and physical well-being, business effectiveness and bottom line, patient health and outcomes, and more. It is the single biggest problem facing our industry today. And it doesn’t have to be this way.
At Joy Energy Time, we aim to tackle this problem head on through education, CEUs, fostering a community of like minded professionals, and holding live events to spread our message and meet HCPs who feel the same way we do, and want to do something about it.
The founders of JET, Erika and Mike, have experienced burnout first hand and are dedicated to helping prevent or reduce it in others.
The Story That Started it All
The proper resources to help didn't exist.
Extrinsic factors carry as much weight as intrinsic, but it wasn’t just the job, at least not entirely. It was Erika as well. Intrinsic factors she’d never developed that can help you cope and be more resilient to these kind of stressors. It’s not something you learn in school.
Following her burnout episode, Erika started to piece together ways of building resources to combat burnout. She analyzed evidence based research, models from Occupational Therapy, every blog post and article she could find. She spoke with other healthcare providers who’ve had the same experience with burnout and realized she wasn’t alone.
No one has to deal with burnout alone. Let us help.
All of our content is evidence based from statistical research on burnout, and interviews from successful healthcare providers who have beaten it.
