Introduction

This publication provides information about both the health status of the population in South Carolina and the number of

healthcare professionals actively practicing across the state. This information is presented in several different ways:

• area summary tables reporting the number of healthcare professionals with a primary practice in that area, the age

and racial profile of the population in that area, a selection of vital statistics and health status indicators for that area,

information about healthcare facilities, and a selection of statistics related to socio-economic conditions that are

closely associated with healthcare status and outcomes

• maps showing the distribution of healthcare professionals by the zip code location of their primary practice setting

• maps showing the concentration of healthcare professionals having their primary practice in each county, relative to

the population in that county

• tables which show, for each county in the state, the total number of healthcare practitioners who report having either

their primary or secondary practice location within that county

This information has been compiled by The Office for Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning in the South Carolina

AHEC Program Office, Medical University of South Carolina. We are a neutral entity dedicated to coordinating the

development and publication of workforce policy-relevant research across the spectrum of health professions in South

Carolina. Currently funded by The Duke Endowment, our primary goal is the development and analysis of accurate, reliable

information on the supply of healthcare professionals and the demand for health services in South Carolina in order to

support a wide array of workforce planning efforts.

Readers interested in additional information on any of the licensed health professions included in this publication are welcome

to contact us directly through our website: www.officeforhealthcareworkforce.org. This report may also be downloaded

free of charge from our website.

Sources and Limitations of the Data

Health Professions Data

The health professions data used in this report are collected every other year during the license renewal process by the

regulatory boards that oversee each of the following professions: Certified Nurse Anesthetists, Certified Nurse Midwives,

Clinical Nurse Specialists, Dental Hygienists, Dental Technicians, Dentists, Licensed Practical Nurses, Nurse Practitioners,

Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Optometrists, Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Physical

Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, and Respiratory Care

(8)

Practitioners. The data collection process is organized and administered through the South Carolina Department of Labor,

Licensing and Regulation, Division of Professional and Occupational Licensing Boards. Although the amount of data

collected during the renewal process is slightly different for each licensed group, each licensure database includes basic

demographic, practice, and location information for every healthcare professional licensed to practice in the state.

The South Carolina Budget and Control Board Office of Research and Statistics (ORS) is the official repository for statistical

data as it relates to health professionals licensure information in South Carolina. The ORS provided the summary counts of

healthcare providers for each county in the state used to create the maps and tables in this report. Regional aggregations

were computed by the staff of the Office for Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning.

The maps included in this publication are based on either the county or zip code in which a provider reported having his or

her primary practice, that is, the practice site in which they spend the majority of their time.

1

The dot density maps, based on

primary practice site zip codes, are intended to convey how our healthcare workforce is concentrated or distributed

throughout the state. The dots in the maps are randomly assigned within the zip code borders and do not reflect the actual

practice location of the providers in the way that street-level address information might do. However, using zip codes rather

than county location improves the quality of information being conveyed by making use of geographic areas smaller than the

county. The second set of maps, based on the county location of the provider’s primary practice, show how concentrated a

particular health profession is, relative to the size of the population, at the county level.

Definitions and Limitations

State law requires that practitioners in each of the health professions profiled in this report obtain a license to practice. For

that reason, the data reported here are based on an accurate count of the supply of licensed practitioners. However,

be-cause practitioners may change their work status over time by temporarily leaving the workforce to care for family members,

by retiring, moving to another state but maintaining their South Carolina license, or maintaining their license but working in

another field, simply counting the number of licensed individuals could be misleading. To avoid that problem, the counts of

licensed healthcare professionals reported here include only those individuals holding an active license to

practice and actively practicing in their field within the state of South Carolina. Note that this definition may include

educators, researchers and administrators who do not engage in direct patient care but are still actively engaged in their

profession.

The result is a conservative count of the healthcare workforce due to the fact that new licensees (those immigrating into

South Carolina from another state, or new graduates receiving their initial license to practice in South Carolina) may not be

required to report their employment or practice status in their initial license application, and thus might not be captured in the

workforce definition until they have gone through the license renewal process. Depending on when a new licensee receives

their initial license to practice, they may be a productive part of the workforce for as much as two years before they are

reflected in official workforce counts. However, it is also true that healthcare providers retire, die, or leave practice every day

for a variety of reasons as well. These two groups tend to balance each other out in a stable workforce. Understanding

(9)

whether a specific health profession is growing or shrinking requires tracking these in- and out-migrations over time.

The time periods on which our workforce counts are based differ for each professional group. The license renewal process for

each of the health professions occurs on a biennial cycle. The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and

Regulation, Division of Professional and Occupational Licensing Boards governs license renewals in South Carolina.

However, the timelines for license renewal are specified within the practice acts of each professional or occupational licensing

board. This produces a staggering effect in the data collection periods, meaning that it is not possible to produce a true

'snapshot' of the healthcare workforce in South Carolina at a single point in time. And the fact that licensee information is

usually updated on a biennial cycle rather than an annual cycle makes it difficult to get a timely estimate of the workforce

since people are constantly entering and leaving the workforce over that two year time period.

The table below shows the time periods during which information was gathered for each of the groups included in this report.

Some regulatory boards may allow a grace period that, in effect, extends the license renewal period beyond the official end

date. Such allowance policies vary from one regulatory board to another. Currently it is not possible to assess the impact

such grace periods might have on the counts reported here, but it is assumed such impact would be small.

For the purposes of this report, doctors of medicine (MDs) and doctors of osteopathy (DOs) are grouped together. Both types

of physicians are awarded the same privilege to practice by the South Carolina Board of Medicine. Physicians are classified

by their self-reported specialty area. Physician counts include physicians involved in post-graduate medical (residency)

training programs. Resident physicians, who hold an active license to practice in the state, contribute a significant amount of

care to South Carolina citizens. The 1,245 residents who were actively practicing in the state at the time this information was

collected made up 11.7% of the entire physician workforce.

The 272 Physicians whose primary practice is in federal or military facilities and who indicate their employer as "Federal,

Military" or "Federal, Civilian" are designated in this report as Federal Physicians. They have been broken out as a separate

category in the report tables and maps, which is common practice in workforce analysis. However, those physicians who

reported their employer as Federal, but had their primary practice in a federally-qualified community health center or rural

health center are counted among the civilian physician workforce, because they provide services to the civilian population.

Population Data Source

The information on area population by age and race is based on results of the 2010 census. County-level age and race

tables were downloaded from the U.S. Census Bureau website. Regional aggregations were created by the Office for

Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning staff.

Demographic, Health Facility and Economic Data

This publication also includes information on health, vital statistics, hospitals and nursing homes, and socio-demographic

data. Definitions of each statistic and its source can be found in Appendix I: Data Definitions and Sources. The statistics on

the percentage of adults with heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and those who currently smoke, have a sedentary

lifestyle or are overweight or obese were all drawn from results of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey in South

Carolina. In order to improve the estimates at the county level, data was pooled from the 2008, 2009 and 2010 survey

responses to produce the county-level estimates in this book. Regional and state-level estimates are based on the 2010

survey results.

Socio-economic data on households with incomes under $25,000, and percentage of the population with a high school

education or less were based on data collected through the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey in South Carolina.

County-level estimates were created from pooled across the years 2008, 2009, and 2010 to avoid problems with small

sample sizes at the county level. State and regional estimates are based solely on the 2010 survey results.

The count of hospital beds includes general beds only and does not include beds reserved for specialty care such as

neonatal intensive care units, psychiatric, rehabilitation, or substance abuse. The bed count for skilled nursing facilities

includes both regular nursing home beds and institutional beds. Both the hospital and nursing home bed counts are based on

published reports by the DHEC Division of Health Licensing cited in Appendix I. The hospital discharge information was

(11)

obtained from the SC Hospital Discharge System database maintained and published by the SC Budget and Control Board

Office of Research and Statistics, Health and Demographics Section. We are reporting the percentage of county residents

that were able to receive hospital care within their home county in 2010.

A new data source was used this year for the measure of percentage of adults without health insurance. Beginning with this

edition we are using Small Area Health Insurance Estimates developed by the U.S. Census Bureau. In this book we are

reporting only on the percentage of adults aged 18 – 64 without health insurance. However, in August 2012, SAHIE released

2010 estimates of health insurance coverage by age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, and income categories at the state-level and

by age, sex, and income categories at the county-level. That more detailed information can be found on their website:

http://www.census.gov/did/www/sahie/.

In addition to reporting information for each county in the state, the information has also been aggregated into regional

summaries. There are several different regional definitions included that are used by one or more governmental agencies for

planning or program implementation purposes, such as the AHEC regions, the DHEC regions, perinatal care regions, and

Workforce Investment Board regions. We also include two different definitions of the urban and rural areas of our state. The

source and definitions for each regional categorization can be found in Appendix I, while a list of the counties included in each

region can be found in Appendix II: Regional Definitions.

Recent Changes in the Healthcare Workforce in South Carolina

This is the third edition of the South Carolina Health Professions Data Book and the first in which it is possible to trace

changes over time in the size of the state’s healthcare workforce. The chart on the following page summarizes the

percentage growth or decline in the number of practitioners who are actively engaged in practicing their profession within the

boundaries of South Carolina. The change is measured over the period from 2008 to 2011 which encompasses a single

update in the licensure data files for all but one professional group. Optometrists provide information to their licensing board

each year. Their growth rate is measured across the period from 2009 to 2011.

Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are the two fastest growing segments of the healthcare workforce in South

Carolina, based on percentage growth in the number who are actively practicing within the state. Optometrists, Nurse

Midwives, and Physical Therapy Assistants also had double-digit growth rates over the most recent two year reporting period.

Most groups have had more modest growth. A few have not changed significantly, and a few have declined in number.

Among the physician sub-specialties being reported in this book, most have increased. The exceptions are Pediatricians who

saw less than a 1% growth rate between 2008 and 2011 and the number of practicing General Surgeons which declined by

2.5% during that same period.
