National growth in medical assistant job openings over the decade
Medical assistants plan to leave their current practice within 2 years
Staffing challenges are accelerating in healthcare today. Nowhere is this felt more acutely than in the area of medical assistants. The growth in need for MAs is increasing at over 20% this decade due to their unique ability to help optimize the efficiency of provider practices. The high demand for qualified medical assistants is met with an increasingly small pool of qualified candidates leading to wage inflation. Medical assistants as an integral part of patient-focused care teams are vital. A shortage of MAs can have a negative impact on all constituents in care delivery. From patients to physicians, clinical staff and the enterprise, none are immune from the challenges imposed by a lack of qualified medical assistants.
