Doctors directly influence more than a third of the entire USA health care economy. Consider these important facts:

  • 902,000: number of physicians in the USA in 2005
  • $2.1 trillion: USA healthcare expenditures in 2006
  • $274 billion: sales of physician-prescribed medications in 2006
  • $587 billion: cost of various patient services and devices ordered by physicians and healthcare providers in 2004
