Reforms to New York State Program Address Physician Shortage
State healthcare groups say new reforms to the Doctors Across New York program will help address a critical shortage of physicians, according to a Buffalo Business First report.
The new provisions to the program, which was originally started in 2008 to repay loans for physicians that commit to practicing in underserved areas, streamline the application process and provide a time frame for applications to be reviewed. They also call for the DOH to appoint a work group of industry representatives to develop the new application process by June 1, 2012, while providing technical assistance to applicants to ease the application completion process.
