How do you contain the rising cost of call pay?

The Challange

In an environment of decreasing reimbursement rates, healthcare organizations are under more pressure to compensate physicians for services provided in the emergency department. Since 2012, the average hospital’s call pay expense has increased by 83% relative to net revenue. Today, more physicians are demanding to be paid, and those who are being paid are demanding to be paid more. The cost of call pay is rising at rate that will prove to be unsustainable for most organizations, and competition for physician talent is adding fuel to the fire.

Many organizations have attempted to solve this challenge through employment, but this solution can be financially unfeasible or culturally unacceptable for some. In these cases, a more creative solution is required.
