Health practitioners are professionals trained to provide care and treatment services. Physicians, also called doctors, are healthcare practitioners licensed to practice medicine, including diagnosing illnesses and prescribing treatments. Other health practitioners include physician assistants, nurses, midwives, dietitians, therapists, physical therapists, operating department practitioners, emergency medical technicians and paramedics. Most health practitioner roles require individuals to have specific qualifications to be authorized to practice.
The major reason why the global physicians and other health practitioners market is valued at over $1 trillion in 2017 is the increase in healthcare access. Access to physicians and other health practitioners has improved in the developing countries.
