Primary Care Doctors in the US
Doctors that practice within the Primary Care Doctors industry often serve as the first point of contact for individuals seeking healthcare, which has contributed to strong demand over the five years to 2019. The burden of chronic illnesses, which are disproportionately prevalent in older adults, has risen significantly due demographic shifts brought on by the aging of the baby-boomer population. Rising total health expenditure and increasing federal funding for Medicare and Medicaid were the principal drivers of revenue during the current period. However, the increase in the number of insured individuals has also exacerbated the shortage of primary care doctors. Despite marginal growth, the number of primary care doctors has not expanded enough to keep up with overwhelming demand. Current trends are expected to accelerate over the five years to 2024 as an aging population drives demand for primary care doctors.
