Population Health Management May Worsen Physician Shortage Mar 22, 2017

 

The link, Population Health Management May Worsen Physician Shortage, discusses the growing issue of physician shortage in the United States, with a projected shortfall of up to 88,000 physicians by 2025. Describes contributing factors, such as physician retirement and burnout caused by the pressure of regulatory demands. Also details new research showing that if the U.S. were to achieve its Healthy People 2020 population health goals, people may live longer, which could eventually make the physician shortage worse, particularly in rural areas.
