AMA Launches Tool To Identify Physician Shortages
The American Medical Association has launched an interactive mapping tool -- called Health Workforce Mapper -- that displays the geographic location of health care providers and clinicians. The tool uses AMA data to highlight provider locations and identify areas where there are shortages of providers. AMA members can access the tool at no cost, while limited access is available for non-AMA members.
