  • In less than a decade, our country could be dealing with a shortage of up to 88,000 physicians. According to a report from the Association of American Medical Colleges, as conveyed by Managed Healthcare Executive, a loss of this extent could make implementing population health strategies, including those geared to reduce morbid obesity and smoking cessation programs, significantly more difficult.



  • Research published by The BMJ reveals findings of a study that looked at whether the outcomes of patients admitted to acute care hospitals in the United States vary between patients who received care from younger providers and those treated by older physicians. Conclusions show patients within the same facility treated by older hospitalists have a higher mortality, with the exception of those cared for by physicians with elevated patient volumes.
