Conclusions: A total of 6.3% of PCPs working in urban areas in Oman suffered burnout. Long working hours was strongly associated with high occupational burnout.

We are a multi-site program, with 1/2 dozen or so clinicians (psychologists and speech therapists) with a primary focus on neurodevelopmental/psychological evaluations (little-to-know psychotherapy services; some speech treatment). We need a system for scheduling, billing, and tracking employee time and productivity, with EHR capabilities. Our current system is just OK- It was designed primarily for...
