In our previous two posts, we looked at the overall decline in primary care physician productivity from 2002 to 2016, and the sharp uptick in capacity for medical sub-specialists during that same time period. For our final installment of this three-part series on the trends in physician productivity, our attention turns to surgical sub-specialties.
In our last post, we demonstrated the overall decline in primary care physician productivity from 2002 to 2016. The decline has yet to rebound for Family Medicine, Pediatrics and Urgent Care while Internal Medicine and OB/Gyn have seen sharp upticks in productivity in the last several years. This week’s focus is on the medical sub-specialties.
Over the past few weeks, we have released a 3-part blog series discussing the shortage of physicians across the country. This week, we have expanded on those posts to create a downloadable white paper.
