Historically, the world of healthcare has been focused on the macroeconomics of hospital operations and systems– patient volume, efficiency, revenue, and turnover. While important, these macroeconomics overlook one of the most critical assets of healthcare: the human system. The individual clinician, the most micro-unit of the medical landscape, is the fundamental building block of our healthcare system.
Clinicians are enduring increased pressure, stress, and burnout– without training or support that focuses on cultivating the human-focused skills needed to adapt and combat these challenges. As a result, the industry is now bracing for unprecedented clinician turnover rates over the next 3-5 years, which could have a devastating impact on healthcare globally.
At Arena Labs, we’re committed to prioritizing the needs of the individual clinician and cultivating human-centered skills, like self-awareness, stress adaptation, and recovery, to shift the narrative from clinician endurance to clinician performance.
Our mission is not to “fix” clinicians; but rather, to give them the tools, training, and data to gain agency over their own performance under high stress and high pressure, so they can flourish both inside and outside the hospital.
Over time, our individualized focus on the microunit becomes a more powerful approach to change the culture and processes of hospital operations at the macro level– driving the pursuit of better patient care through the lens of human performance and pioneering an entirely new concept in healthcare: High Performance Medicine®.
