Idaho physicians have outsize economic impact

January 18, 2018View for printing

Idaho's 2,738 patient-facing physicians are responsible for creating on average 12.1 jobs each, for combined economic activity in the state of $5.2 billion, according to the 2018 American Medical Association Economic Impact Study.

The jobs creation figures encompass not only jobs in medical offices such as billing and clinical personnel, but also jobs created as a result of providing services and supplies to physicians' offices, ranging from medical supply companies to janitorial services, said Susie Pouliot, CEO of the Idaho Medical Association in Boise. The AMA worked with a consulting company to perform the study on a national basis, as well as on a per-state basis, she said.
