Vermont Health Workforce Data Collection

Organization name: University of Vermont AHEC
Organization website: www.uvm.edu/medicine/ahec/?Page=workforceresearchdevelopment.html&SM=publicationsandreportssubmenu.html
Organization description:

Workforce research, planning, and development for primary care workforce is conducted annually. Each of the 3 community-based Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) conduct a survey of all primary care practices in its region to get a snapshot of the supply and distribution of primary care practitioners (PCPs). This inventory guides AHECs’ program development to address needs of the current workforce, as well as identifies emerging workforce shortages. The Vermont Primary Care Workforce Snapshot report is a compilation published every other year using data from the 3 regional surveys. (See their Primary Care Workforce page for more information.) The AHEC Nursing Workforce Research, Planning, and Development Program creates transparency in the healthcare field by collecting annual data and participating in national efforts to shape the future of nursing. (See their Nursing Workforce page for more information.)
