The Telehealth Movement

Our professionals at Assurgent Medical Staffing are constantly looking for innovative ways to provide opportunities for doctors and medical facilities. Right now, the most innovative concept in healthcare is Telehealth. Our goal is to help medical practices, hospitals, and clinics understand the benefits of utilizing telehealth in their facility, while at the same time providing an opportunity to medical providers to reach more patients in a more efficient and less time consuming manner. Telehealth, also known as Tele-Medicine, is booming right now. An article published on Forbes.com in September 2015 brings to light 5 different companies who are leading the way in this industry. However, before we get into the five leading “tele-companies”, where did the idea for telehealth come from? The article pointed at two different factors that paved the way for Telehealth. First, telehealth is modeled off of online banking. With online banking, it took some time for people to understand the convenience of its use. Today, most people never step foot into an actual bank unless it is for a purpose that cannot be dealt with online. Telehealth is expanding, and will likely end up being utilized in the same fashion. The other company that has paved the way for Telehealth is Microsoft. Microsoft came out with their Kinect Motion Sensor in order to create a better gaming experience. Little did they know that this technology would be so useful in the medical field. The human skeletal tracking system can be used for musculoskeletal health. Microsoft’s Senior Director for Worldwide Health, Dr. Bill Crounse explained, “I have seen Kinect being used in applications for physical medicine and...

Projected Physician Shortage

Predictions show that by 2025, our physician workforce is not going to be large enough to meet the demand. According to a 2013 report prepared for the Association of American Medical Colleges, or AAMC, there are 767,100 physicians who are actively practicing that have completed their graduate medical education, and are under the age of 75. Of these physicians 26% are between age 55 and 65 years old, meaning many of them will retire over the next 10 years. This could remove almost 30% of our physician work force. In addition, the amount of physicians completing their graduate medical education each year, around 29,000, is remaining the same. Another factor for these predictions is that younger physicians, in the millennial’s generation, are more likely to prefer to work fewer hours than physician’s from older generations. Census data shows that male physicians between 26 and 35 worked 5.3 hours less each week in 2011 than the demographic in 1980. While those 35 and over worked about the same amount.  The study projects that 46, 100 to possibly 90,400 less physicians will be working in 2025, than the projected supply...
