“Anybody that’s looking at how to manage call pay, they absolutely should go through the process and learn about it.”
Bill Caldwell, CEO of Conemaugh Health System
Predictability in budgeting is everything. But for many hospital administrators, the rising cost of call pay and the constant possibility that yet more specialty groups will come forward asking for call pay makes setting a budget extremely difficult. But Bill Caldwell, CEO of Conemaugh Health System in Pennsylvania, has found a solution.
“It’s been a very positive experience,” Caldwell said. “I really haven’t had any negatives at any of the facilities I’ve been in.”
Having implemented the solution at three different hospitals, all with different cultures and strategic challenges, Caldwell said he’s convinced the solution can work anywhere.
“I don’t know why it wouldn’t work at any hospital,” Caldwell said. “Anybody that’s looking at how to manage call pay, they absolutely should go through the process and learn about it."
