Source: USA Today

Many factors, including the growing population and the Affordable Care Act, have increased the projected number of primary care physicians needed to provide care to U.S. citizens to 52,000 by 2025. Unfortunately, funding for teaching hospitals expires in 2015, which diminishes the future supply of doctors needed to fill the growing demand.

The new maintenance of certification (MOC) rules have caused mass outrage among internal medicine physicians. Doctors must face new board certification requirements, including accruing MOC points for two- or fear-year cycles instead of asking doctors to take one test every ten years. Physicians are also angry that the public can see who hasn’t met board requirements.

Adopting and implementing electronic health records can be a stressful, costly and overwhelming experience for physicians.

Primary care physicians offer women broader preventative services than obstetrician/gynecologists during annual visits, according to a new study of 63 million preventative care visits. Women who saw OB/GYNs were more likely to receive screening for cervical and breast cancer, Chlamydia and osteoporosis. Women who went to primary care doctors were more likely to be screened for colon cancer, high cholesterol and diabetes. They also received more information about diet and exercise.
