ECG Announces the Commencement of the 2012 National Pediatric Subspecialty Physician Compensation, Production, and Benefits Survey
St. Louis, MO – February 22, 2012 – ECG Management Consultants, Inc., one of the nation’s premier healthcare management consulting firms, today announced the commencement of the National Pediatric Subspecialty Physician Compensation, Production, and Benefits Survey, year 2012 based on 2011 data. Now in its sixth year, the pediatric survey is recognized as the leading industry source of compensation and production benchmarks in the pediatric subspecialty market.
As organizations continue to engage physicians through alignment strategies and employment arrangements, reliable compensation and production benchmarks are critical for the assessment of physician performance and successful recruitment and retention of pediatric subspecialists. ECG’s pediatric survey provides an in-depth review of pediatric subspecialty market trends, including provider compensation, production, benefit packages, recruiting efforts and signing bonuses by specialty, reimbursement rates, emerging compensation plan design trends, and numerous other key data points.
The 2011 survey included 35 of the nation’s premier children’s organizations with data from more than 3,600 pediatric subspecialists. Participants in the survey will receive timely and reliable compensation and production benchmarks for medical, surgical, and hospital-based pediatric subspecialties, with sample sizes that meet or exceed other national industry surveys.
ECG conducts a series of specialty-specific compensation and production surveys, including annual studies in the Northwest, Midwest, and Southeast, which together include data for more than 10,000 providers. Building on the success of its regional surveys, ECG has invited provider organizations across all regions to participate in the 2012 surveys. In addition, ECG performs many other research studies in partnership with organizations such as the American Medical Group Association (AMGA) and Thomson Reuters. ECG enjoys the support of many respected provider organizations across our survey products.
ECG survey members gain exclusive access to ECGVault (www.ecgvault.com), ECG’s online data portal that contains current and historical survey benchmarks at the market, organization, and provider level. Introduced in 2011, ECGVault allows for robust organization and market trending of provider performance benchmarks by specialty, standard and custom reporting, and downloading of benchmarks and related materials.
