Reporting Rare Data and Pay Practices

Accurate and contemporary pay practices and rates for physician call coverage are difficult to obtain. Now in its 13th year, this survey is the most comprehensive report of physician on-call pay rates and practices in the U.S. Reporting on over 50 specialties, the survey contains a rich dataset reflecting a number of variables and topics related to call pay, including physician call panel sizes by specialty group, telemedicine call pay practices and compensation practices for concurrent coverage. It also includes data for restricted and unrestricted call coverage, which is important in setting accurate call pay rates, both from a financial and fair market value perspective. Organizations across the U.S. have used these data to help develop their physician on-call pay design strategies in contract negotiations with physicians and to support the fair market value of their physician compensation arrangements.
