Choose the right on-call comp model for your hospital
Paying physicians for ED call coverage is no longer simply a cost incurred by a hospital—for many facilities, it is becoming an essential investment. Physicians are increasingly unwilling to take call voluntarily or in exchange for medical staff privileges, and payment for call, although expensive, ensures that the hospital can maintain services and helps strengthen physician-hospital alignment.
However, hospitals now have many on-call compensation models to choose from, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. And new options are emerging every day.
