ABSTRACT:

This report, which is part of a series discussing workforce trends for general pediatrics and related subspecialty areas, highlights the American Board of Pediatrics’ (ABP) workforce data for pediatric rheumatology. Readers are encouraged to read the initial report1 in the series, as it provides information regarding general pediatrics and summary information about other ABP subspecialties. In 1990, pediatric rheumatology became the 10th ABP subboard to offer a certification examination, with the first examination yielding 87 board-certified pediatric rheumatologists.

ABSTRACT:

Objective
To assess whether primary care physicians, via referrals or other mechanisms, are now providing proportionally less care for children with specific common diagnoses, thus driving greater demand for specialist services.

Secondary data analysis (1993-2001) from one of the largest commercial healthcare organizations in the United States. Evaluation and management (E/M) common procedural terminology (CPT) visit codes and International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes pertaining to asthma, constipation, headache,...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose
To determine how practicing physicians who graduated from internal medicine-pediatrics residency programs allocate their practice time and professional activities between adult and child patients, and to investigate whether there are predictors of the extent to which a particular physician's practice is more or less focused on one or the other of these patient groups.

Method
In 2003, the authors mailed a questionnaire to the 1,300 generalists and 472 subspecialists who, as of 2003, had completed internal medicine-pediatrics...

ABSTRACT:

Pediatrics and children's health care are not synonymous. A pluralistic mix of physician specialists and nonphysician health care professionals provide services to this nation's children. There is unlikely to be a day in the foreseeable future when pediatric-trained professionals provide all services to children. Individuals 17 years and younger make about 23% of total visits to family physicians.1 Coherent workforce policy designed to strengthen children's health care must account for this diversity in medical training.

ABSTRACT:

Background
​Although pediatricians and family physicians are trained in the care of children, previous studies have revealed significant differences in the medical care and specialty referral patterns each provides. During the 1990s, several developments in the population and the health care system (eg, aging of the population and increases in Medicaid managed care) may have resulted in changes to the proportion of children seeking care from one or the other specialty.

Objective
To determine any changes in the proportion of office visits...
