25 By 5: Symposium to Reduce Documentation Burden
on U.S. Clinicians by 75% by 2025

The overall symposium goal is to establish strategies and approaches to reduce clinician documentation burden on US clinicians to 25% by 2025.

Specific meeting goals include:
1) Engage a diverse group of key stakeholders and leaders focused on reducing documentation burden
2) Assess the likely potential for burden reduction within categories of documentation burden, including identifying ‘low hanging fruit’ for ‘quick wins’ without adversely impacting quality or access to care
3) Establish approaches for immediate (<3 months) and short-term (6 months) reduction in clinical documentation burden
4) Generate approaches to longer term (10 years) elimination of clinical documentation burden. Attendees are expected to commit to furthering the mission of reducing clinician documentation burden by leading and raising awareness of the outputs, action items, and initiatives that result from this symposium series.
