The Call Pay Solution®
On-call compensation issues involve two divergent perspectives: the medical staff's and the hospital administration's. Physicians perceive a justifiable need to be compensated fairly for the services they provide. Administrations face the challenge of staffing their emergency departments with specialists who provide emergency medical services to the community while fulfilling EMTALA requirements.
It’s important to find an approach to call pay that satisfies the interests of the physicians without threatening the financial viability of the hospital.
Our Call Pay Solution® helps your hospital create a call pay program that’s inclusive, fair and sustainable. The program’s three-phase, six-step process empowers your organization and inspires change, creating a culture of call pay that’s inclusive and mutually beneficial.
