Addressing COVID-19: Understanding Changes in Clinical Workforce Compensation and Productivity

After an unprecedented year, health care organizations across the nation face new and persisting challenges as they continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. SullivanCotter is offering enhanced reporting to help organizations understand COVID-19-related changes in work RVUs, compensation and productivity ratios for physicians, advanced practice providers (APPs) and other health care clinicians.

Organizations submitting this additional information will be eligible to purchase detailed analyses and results from the new findings at an 80% discount off nonparticipant pricing.


How to Participate

Organizations are able to submit this productivity information through their participation in the following surveys: the Advanced Practice Provider Compensation and Productivity Survey, the Medical Group Compensation and Productivity Survey and the Physician Compensation and Productivity Survey.

Your organization may provide individual incumbent productivity data either by CPT code level or work RVUs by month.

Contact us if your organization is interested in providing additional productivity data through its current survey submissions for 2021.
