The impending shortages of doctors and nurses for healthcare organizations have been well documented in the media and the healthcare industry. However, the shortage of Allied Health Professionals is a less talked about but equally important issue for hospitals, medical groups and healthcare organizations.
According to the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professionals (ASAHP) Allied Health professionals are made up of dental hygienists, diagnostic medical sonographers, dietitians, medical technologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, radiographers, respiratory therapists, and speech language pathologists. Allied health professionals comprise nearly 60% of the healthcare workforce.
