According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, patient demand is surpassing physician supply. In other words, there are more patients needing care than there are physicians practicing medicine. Hospitals that conduct a community physician and provider demand analysis, sometimes known as a Physician Demand Estimator or Medical Staff Development Planning, will be armed with the right intelligence to effectively recruit for the appropriate specialists needed in their service area.
