Missouri targets doctor shortage, expands first-in-nation law
STLtoday.com‎ - May 30, 2017 (米国、ミズーリ州)

JEFFERSON CITY • Numerous additional doctors from around the U.S. could become eligible to treat patients in Missouri’s underserved areas as a result of a planned expansion of a first-in-the-nation law aimed at addressing a growing doctor shortage.
The newly passed Missouri legislation would broaden the reach of a 2014 law that sought to bridge the gap between communities in need of doctors and physicians in need of jobs. That law created a new category of licensed professionals — “assistant physicians” — for people who graduate from medical school and pass key medical exams but aren’t placed in residency programs needed for certification..



Obamacare, Congress to Blame for Upcoming Doctor Shortage
Newsmax‎ - Tuesday, 30 May 2017 02:07 PM (米国、全国)

The future two decades in the U.S. will see a major physician shortage due to Obamacare and Congress, wrote Kevin Campbell, an internationally-recognized cardiologist, in an article in the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. The problem stems from mid-career physicians leaving the field, disillusioned or burned out by the level of electronic recordkeeping necessary under Obamacare. And, fewer young people are entering the field.



Hong Kong's chronic doctor shortage can be cured with new tech and new blood.
South China Morning Post‎ - Tuesday, 30 May, 2017, 11:08am (Hong Kong)

Hong Kong boasts 5.2 hospital beds per thousand people, a ratio higher than most OECD countries. However, our public hospitals and clinics regrettably suffer from an acute shortage of doctors – cited as a cause for most medical blunders in recent years. The Food and Health Bureau says public hospitals have a shortfall of some 250 doctors.
Increasing medical school enrolment is one way to resolve the supply crunch and relieve the workload of doctors in public hospitals. We currently have about 420 medical graduates each year. But if we expand enrolment, we must overcome the challenge of funding. The government heavily subsidises the tuition fee of each medical student, and a substantial amount is needed to train a doctor.



Pilot program in Buffalo could cure area's doctor shortage
Buffalo News‎ - Thu, May 25, 2017 (米国、ニューヨーク州)

Many Buffalo-area medical practices will receive a big financial boost – and patients likely will get easier access to health care – thanks to the region's selection for a new Medicare pilot program that eventually could help cure the area's physician shortage.
Insurance executives who pushed for the program said Wednesday that the pilot program is likely to pump hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding into local medical practices that choose to take part. Those would be practices that serve the region's 90,000 or so people on the traditional fee-for-service Medicare program, not the popular, HMO-like Medicare Advantage plans.
What's more, insurers and doctors said the initiative to improve Medicare – the hugely influential government health insurance program for seniors – could have ramifications throughout the local health care system.



FOX13 Investigates: Doctor shortages in parts of the south
FOX13 Memphis‎ -May 8, 2017 - 7:43 PM (米国、テネシー州)

In a comprehensive report released by The Association of American Medical Colleges, AAMC, the doctor shortage in America is real and significant. Over the next 10 years, we could see a doctor shortage ranging from 62-to 95-thousand.

This is from the AAMC report:
"To help alleviate the shortage, the AAMC supports a multipronged solution, which includes innovations in care delivery, better use of technology, and increased federal support for an additional 3,000 new residency positions a year over the next five years. Medical schools have done their part to increase the overall number of physicians by expanding their class sizes, and now Congress must approve a modest increase in federal support for new doctor training if the United States is to increase its overall number of physicians..."
