United States Primary Care Physicians Market Growth Trends to 2028: Administrative Burden and Growing Operational Cost

·4-min read

Dublin, Dec. 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "U.S. Primary Care Physicians Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Type (General Practice, Family Physician & Geriatrics, General Internal Medicine, General Pediatrics), and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The U.S. primary care physicians market size is expected to reach USD 320.3 billion by 2028. The market is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.02% from 2021 to 2028.

An increasing number of Medicare beneficiaries in the country is expected to create high demand for Primary Care Physicians (PCP). According to a CDC survey in 2019, around 51.2% of physician office visits were made for primary care services.

According to the 2019 Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative's (PCPCC) evidence report, there is a significant gap in investment for improving primary care services in the U.S. One of the main concerns is the growing shortage of primary care doctors and allied healthcare professionals. In a report published on the complexities of physician demand and supply in June 2020, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) estimated a deficit between 21,400 and 55,200 primary care physicians by 2033. Furthermore, there is a substantial difference between the average annual revenue and salary generated by a PCP in comparison to a specialist physician.

The U.S. has one of the advanced healthcare systems and compared to any other developed nation its healthcare expenditure is two times higher. According to CMS, healthcare spending accounted for 17.7% of the GDP in 2019 and is expected to reach 19.7% in the next ten years. Primary care services act as a gatekeeper for the healthcare system and play a significant role in improving healthcare outcomes and reducing overall medical expenditure.

Furthermore, the onset of the COVID - 19 pandemic resulted in income loss for primary care offices in the United States, due to the substantial reductions in revenue caused by physical distancing. Based on volume data for general practices, general pediatric practices, family medicine practices, and general internal medicine practices, researchers from Harvard Medical School and the American Board of Family Medicine estimated that COVID-19 would cost primary care practices USD 15.1 billion in revenue.
