Strategic Executive Compensation in Medical Groups

Untitled-1

As we’ve discussed in the past, dynamic hospital compensation programs can be the key to attracting and retaining top executive talent, which ultimately impacts the continuity of care in america. 

 

As we transition to new delivery models, there is a growing need to think strategically about medical group executive compensation as well.

 

A rise in executive compensation

 

A recent MGMA study found that medical group executive compensation has increased nearly 14% over the past four years. The same study found that CEOs of larger medical groups experienced slower increases in compensation than CEOs of smaller groups. This means that smaller organizations are fighting to remain competitive, and one way they’re doing this is by offering attractive rewards packages. 

 

The importance of long-term stability

 

This approach is effective as long as compensation programs are designed with long-term sustainability in mind. Without a long-term vision, hefty rewards packages can deplete resources, making it hard to retain executive talent without threatening the financial viability of an organization.

 

The Healthcare Executive Advantage Plan

 

If medical groups are going to remain competitive and sustain increases in compensation, they must think strategically.

 

In many cases, medical groups can apply strategies from our Hospital Executive Advantage Plan to create a more sustainable rewards program for their executives. For example, we combine short-term and long-term rewards to create a balanced rewards suite that will help organizations attract and retain top executive talent. This approach, combined with our platform for cost-recovery, ensures the long-term sustainability of our programs.

 

Whether your organization is a level one trauma center or a physician-owned multi-specialty group, thinking strategically about your rewards and benefits can position you as a market leader for years to come.
