  • Projection of Physician Supply and Demand in Wisconsin through 2025

    Projection of Physician Supply and Demand, PDF 
    Using the Wisconsin Health Service Areas framework and data from Wisconsin licensure records, this presentation uses information from the March 2015 AAMC Report, Complexities of Physician Supply and Demand: Projections from 2013 to 2025, to arrive at a range of possibilities for physician supply and demand in Wisconsin in 2025. The presentation explores the AAMC Report supply scenarios (including change in age of retirement, preference for shorter hours among “millenials”, and modest GME expansion) and demand scenarios (including expansion of insurance coverage, implementation of managed care, increased used of retail clinics, and increased use of physician assistants and advanced practice nurses). It concludes with a look at how the these changes may play out on the local level in terms of the need for new physician recruitment, and some suggestions for actions to mitigate the anticipated demand.

  • Wisconsin Primary Care Physicians: Current Distribution and Retirement Projection

    Current Distribution and Retirement Projections, PDF
    A two-part presentation using Wisconsin Health Services Area geography to analyze the current distribution of the physician workforce in Wisconsin, by region and by rural or urban service area type. The analysis is based on data on all licensed physicians in Wisconsin as of 3-15-2012 (from Department of Safety and Professional Services) augmented by data on work setting and hours of work in patient care from the 2012 Wisconsin Physician Workforce Report (October 2012).

  • Wisconsin Health Services Areas: Purpose, Description, and Potential Applicants

    (June 2015, PDF) 
    (Spring 2015 ) Wisconsin AHEC has recently completed a project to map health service areas in Wisconsin. The primary objective for developing this service area geography is to facilitate local health workforce analysis. The service areas also provide a useful framework for monitoring local program outcomes related to health workforce development and population health status. This presentation explains how the service areas were developed and how they might be used.
