Pediatricians are being overwhelmed by "NICU graduates"

by Sally Ginsburg, MD

In case you missed it, a new report from the Health Care Cost Institute found that health care spending on children covered by employer-sponsored health insurance (ESI) rose faster than the overall average spending, increasing 5.7% per year from 2010-2013 compared to 3.9% for the entire ESI population.

by Iyue Sung, PhD, Director of athenaResearch

To get a closer read on the “State of Pediatrics,” Epocrates and athenaResearch recently surveyed more than 700 pediatricians on the Epocrates network.

Data Points to Behavioral Health as a Growing Challenge for Pediatricians
