The work schedule of many physicians includes weekly call coverage at hospitals and other
facilities. Most health systems approach on-call pay using benchmark survey data, outside
valuations, or even anecdotal information. The problem with these approaches is that they
frequently fail to account for the actual burden of call coverage at a particular facility.
Moreover, hospitals are often less-than-transparent in developing these rates, leaving
physicians with an uncertain feeling about whether they are fairly compensated.
Physician practices, however, are in a perfect position to use data analytics to ensure that on-
call pay is set at the right amount. They have the data needed in their systems, but just need
to know how to extract and apply it.
To help practices evaluate their on-call pay, this session will provide an in-depth analysis into
the components of call coverage and discuss how practices can use data analytics to develop
improved on-call pay models.
Key Learning Objectives:
• Identify each service component of call coverage and calculate how each component should be compensated
• Discover how data analytics can help create an accurate picture of the workload and financial burden associated with call coverage
• Implement a framework for on-call pay that reflects the true cost of hospital-related coverage
