2019 Physician Data Report
Health workforce development strategies in Indiana are important to informing policy and supporting workforce shortage designations. Over the last several years, significant strides have been made to collect comprehensive, accurate and timely health workforce data which are maintained for longitudinal workforce tracking. These efforts have contributed to collaborative dialogue regarding health workforce policy and planning. The implementation of Indiana Senate Enrolled Act 223 (SEA 223-2018) in January 2019 required professionals regulated by selected professional licensing boards to provide information regarding employment and practice during their license renewal periods. The Medical Licensing Board is one of the boards named in SEA 223-2018, specifically affecting allopathic and osteopathic physicians. As a research entity, the Bowen Center for Health Workforce Research and Policy (Bowen Center) has been committed to and engaged in supporting the State of Indiana with developing sustainable data management processes and publishing timely workforce information.
