Why Dallas USA: The demand is indeed growing, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). With up to 30 million people newly gaining insurance coverage starting in 2014 and 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day for the next 2 decades, the nation faces a shortage of more than 91,000 physicians by 2020, split evenly between primary and specialty care, the AAMC predicts.

According to this year’s National Resident Matching Program, graduating medical students increasingly appear to be interested in careers in primary care. The percentage of students choosing residencies in family medicine was up 39% in 2013 from 2012, and increases also were seen in those choosing internal medicine–primary care. 

Dallas has many hospitals and a number of medical research facilities within its city limits. One major research centre is the Dallas Medical District with the UT Southwestern Medical Center in the Stemmons Corridor, along with the affiliated UT Southwestern Medical School. The health care complex includes within its bounds Parkland Memorial Hospital, Children's Medical Center, William P. Clements University Hospital (formerly St. Paul University Hospital), and the Zale Lipshy University Hospital.

Global Telemedicine Market Outlook 2020

The shortage of physicians in rural and remote areas provides opportunity for telemedicine to spread its reach to millions of patients and this widespread deployment of services will continue at a rapid pace in the future as well. In the latest research study, “Global Telemedicine Market Outlook 2020”, the analysts have studied the complete telemedicine industry with focus on market segmentation, government initiatives and competitive landscape. According to our analysis, the market for telemedicine technologies, including hardware, software & services, stood at US$ 17.8 Billion in 2014, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 18.4% during 2014-2020.

Telemedicine applications are surging due to high prevalence of chronic diseases, rising smartphone users, consistent need for improved quality services and rising the elderly population across countries which thereby urge telemedicine to deliver improved products with the higher patient satisfaction. On the contrary, reimbursement challenges, uneven distribution of telecom network in remote areas, and high operating cost are the major factors hindering its implementation.

The report also provides a detailed study on the geographical distribution of telemedicine with market sizes of North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific along with their future forecast. It also provides an insight into the different telemedicine applications with their market share in 2014. Tele dermatology and Tele gynecology grabbed the highest market share, followed by Tele cardiology, Tele neurology, Tele orthopedics,Tele emergency care etc.

Overall, the report provides extensive information, and the rational analysis of the global telemedicine market. Separate section is devoted to mergers & acquisitions that have taken place in past two years. The report concludes with a competitive analysis of the key market players, providing business overview of each player along with SWOT analysis. The industry is dominated by Mckesson, Philips Healthcare, GE Healthcare, and Cerner among others.

Physician Supply and Demand Through 2025: Key Findings

In March 2015, the economic modeling and forecasting firm IHS Inc. released a new study, The Complexities of Physician Supply and Demand: Projections from 2013 to 2025, at the request of the AAMC. Projections for individual specialties were aggregated into four broad categories for reporting: primary care, medical specialties, surgical specialties, and “other” specialties.1 To reflect future uncertainties in health policy and care use and delivery patterns, the study presents ranges for the projected shortage of physicians rather than a specific shortage number. Demand for physicians continues to grow faster than supply. Although physician supply is projected to increase modestly between 2013 and 2025, demand will grow more steeply.

Physician recruiters say their clients—mostly hospitals and midsized and large group practices—are more interested in internists than in family physicians or pediatricians. According to Mark Smith, executive vice president of Merritt, Hawkins & Associates in Irving, TX..

Physicians face bigger challenges than ever as demand for healthcare grows, including staff shortages and burnout, adoption of new technologies, and patients demanding more convenient care. As a result, more new physicians are choosing hospital employment over independent practice. At least 25% of hospital executives said this year they still plan to purchase more physician practices.
