Projecting future clinician supply and demand informs stakeholders and policy makers about the health care workforce implications of expected changes in the health care environment, including demographic shifts in the population and changing public policies.

The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis is charged with estimating supply and demand of the U.S. health care workforce and works to overcome the inherent challenges projecting the future by improving available data, integrating projection systems, and enhancing scenario modeling, including building nurse workforce microsimulation models that facilitate localization, improve accuracy and factor in other types of clinicians.
