We’ve been reporting a lot lately on health, health care and being well (take a look at some of our recent coverage on the topic) — and now we’d like to know what’s next.

Medical professionals: What are the most significant changes you expect to face in 2013? We’re interested in hearing from doctors, nurses, pharmacists, clerks, researchers, students — anyone who works in a field related to medicine, healthcare or well-being.

What changes will affect your work most this year? Is it pay? What about regulations? Or labor issues? What about electronic records? How are the demographics of your patients changing? How are you preparing for the Affordable Care Act to take full effect?

Whatever you think the biggest issue will be for you this year — big or small — we’d love to hear about it.
