Providing Unique Insight Into APPs

As health care organizations become more focused on population health management, improved access, quality and cost-effective care, the demand for advanced practice providers (APPs) continues to grow. This survey provides invaluable insight into APP compensation levels, trends and pay practices and includes critical data on physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other certified providers across a number of emerging specialties – helping organizations to benchmark and assess their pay practices for this increasingly important provider group.

The Advanced Practice Provider Compensation and Productivity Survey provides the tools to systematically track and benchmark market changes, which in turn helps organizations in managing strategic and financial planning for continued growth and success.

Enhanced Multiphase Auditing Process

Our participant experience includes an audit process that allows organizations to identify year-over-year discrepancies and areas of concern, contributes to the robustness and integrity of our data and provides greater confidence in report accuracy. If audits are needed, SullivanCotter emails participants when their audits are ready. After which, they may log in to their accounts to clarify and submit feedback via secure communication.
