Source: Solucient physicians to population ratios were constructed from a combination of public claims, private claims and several surveys, including the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS). These ratios represent the number of full-time-equivalent (FTE) physicians currently serving the ambulatory care needs of a typical U.S. community in 2003. A national model and four regional models are presented to show a range of physician requirements based on regional practice patterns. These ratios serve as national and regional guidelines and are not intended to estimate the current demand for or supply of physicians in any specific market. For the purposes of this study the MCRH used the Midwest ratios.
