In this webinar, ECG’s team of experts reviewed trends impacting the physician compensation environment as well as the findings of ECG’s 19th annual Physician Compensation Survey. The session included our analysis of important physician and advanced practice provider performance trends from the 2018 survey. A focus of this webinar was market trends related to compensation methodologies for different specialty categories and how these plans integrate with overall organization strategies. As healthcare reimbursement transitions from volume to value, it is essential that physician compensation plans also evolve to ensure organizational success under changing financial incentives.
ECG’s survey focuses on provider performance trends, including compensation, production, and benefits by specialty, compensation plan design and metrics, recruiting efforts and signing bonuses, CPT code physician profiling, and many other key performance metrics. The 2018 ECG surveys included data from 160 physician specialties and 20 advanced practice provider specialties from 259 physician organizations, representing over 45,000 clinicians. Together, this data contributed to our most comprehensive reports to date.
