Incentive Pay is on the rise for executives
By: Leah Worthy
A recent B.E. Smith report on healthcare compensation illustrated a growing trend towards incentivized executive compensation. Now 57% of healthcare organizations have executive compensation programs that incorporate at-risk incentivized rewards, and over the past year, the percentage of healthcare executives who received incentivized pay increased 7%.
These incentives are typically aimed at two objectives: the transition to value-based care and the improvement of operating margins. Most incentivized programs target both of these objectives, but place more emphasis on the transition to value-based care.
As incentivized programs become more common, it’s important to remember that every healthcare organization is unique. When it comes to compensation, what works at one facility doesn’t necessarily work at another. In order to maximize the benefits of having an incentivized rewards program, you need to build a strategy around the unique needs of your organization.
Our Healthcare Executive Advantage Plan was designed to be customizable, allowing organizations to reward what matters most to them at the time while keeping an eye on the future. Through our strategic partner network, our clients have access to tools that analyze revenue by provider and compare provider productivity relative to patient complexity. This makes it possible for them to reward things like productivity and quality in a meaningful way.
When healthcare organizations make the most of their at-risk incentives, their compensation program becomes a powerful tool. It can help improve productivity, performance, patient satisfaction, and cash flow, putting a facility in a position to achieve its highest goals.
