Indiana Physician Workforce Dashboards

Indiana physicians are a critical part of Indiana’s health care system. Indiana physicians renew their medical license every two years under the Indiana Medical Licensing Board. At that time, they provide information on their mailing address, any disciplinary action, and their citizenship status.

The Bowen Center is the soft rollout stage of development for the Indiana Physician Workforce dashboards. We are collecting feedback to ensure that we provide the best health workforce information tool possible. Please take a moment to fill out any thoughts, concerns, or suggestions you have. We appreciate your input!

About the Dashboards

SEA 223: Standardizing data collection

The data that is regularly collected by physicians on license renewal to support regulatory processes is minimal and would not be sufficient to inform physician workforce policy and planning. Fortunately, Indiana has robust information available on Indiana physicians (thanks to SEA 223). The standardized collection of data from physicians during license renewal enables the state to conduct analyses and inform the creation of policies and programs for physicians that are based on high-quality workforce data.

How is the data collected from Indiana physicians helpful?
Here’s an example. During the COVID pandemic, the accessibility of comprehensive and granular data on Indiana’s physician allowed the State to respond quickly, identifying pulmonologists (specialty) that work in inpatient settings (practice setting) in counties that were hardest hit by COVID-19 (practice location). These are three data fields that prior to SEA 223-2018 were not being captured on Indiana physicians.
How to drill down into the data.
We’ve developed interactive workforce dashboards to make the data on Indiana physicians engaging, useful, and informative. Try customizing the fields in the dashboard below to answer any specific questions you might have, such as “How many Family Medicine Physicians practice in Allen County?” or “How many Indiana physicians identify as Asian?”
Need more information?

Our hope is that this visualization tool makes Indiana’s robust health workforce data more accessible to everyone. If you would like more information about our sample size and data collection process click here [link to bottom of page meta data]. If these visualizations can’t answer your question, you can submit a data inquiry to us on a form located here or by emailing us at bowenctr@iu.edu.
