During the course of my work I read many articles and journals that apply to healthcare practice demographics. Much of the time, demographers form a consensus on the big picture. Often, these analysts and researchers can come to disagreements in their conclusions. You would expect nothing less. But to help our doctors, I have gleaned some factors that I think they should know to make wise decisions for their practices. This episode explains some of the take-aways that will help our practices.
Rather than illustrating these trends with data and algorithms to prove my point and recall studies that may conflict somewhat, I have put down trends I think you should know. To illustrate, demographers take a more "fatalistic conclusion" on our economy. We don't have to take into account whether this will help or hurt President Joe Biden. We (as demographers) call the balls and strike as we see them. Is the Birth Rate rising or falling? Will healthcare practices see a reduced labor force that could hurt doctors? Where is the housing market headed? That is the nature of our discussions.
The long version of this webinar will, at least, give you an idea of what trends are most applicable to doctors. After all, they are our key, target market. I think that much of what I discuss is obvious. You DO sense that many doctors are holding back their applications for school. Right? This is a trend (among others I discuss) that will help guide you in your decisions.
