This report reveals trends across cardiology, surgery, APPs and non-clinical compensation. Although the findings reflect data prior to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, this report may be more important than ever as cardiovascular organizations across the country face a new normal and are reevaluating compensation models and the definition of work productivity.
|All regions of the country reported increases in median total cardiology compensation with the South remaining in the lead.|
|EP ($678,495) and interventional physicians ($674,910) are the top earners.|
|Although the gap has narrowed over the years, cardiologists in integrated ownership models out-earn private physicians at every subspecialty level.|
|Data showed groups in the top quartile for their deployment of APPs per cardiologist were able to maintain significantly larger (22%) patient panel sizes.|
|Advanced heart failure physicians reported the lowest wRVU production per FTE, yet their compensation per wRVU is high compared to other specialties.
There was a decline in discharge volumes per cardiologist potentially due to procedures like elective PCI moving to the ambulatory setting.
