Dr. Swamy is passionate about the "quintuple aim" in healthcare and believes that sustainable improvement in healthcare can only come from achieving all five aims simultaneously: care that is centered on individual patients and improves outcomes for the entire population, closes gaps in health equity and improves the experience health care providers and patients and does all of this at a lower cost. To that end, he has investigated burnout in clinicians and applied these findings to assist health systems in understanding the importance of and improving their approach to clinician wellbeing.
