Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
What is the relative value of different physician specialties to a hospital or medical practice? To help executives, administrators and others involved in physician employment answer this question, Jackson & Coker, 35-year veteran physician staffing firm, has published its latest physician compensation study covering 24 medical specialties. It is formatted as the “2012 Physician Contribution to Operations Calculator.”
“This annual study is highly useful in forecasting revenue generated by different service lines, and we provide both an online and physical slide rule free to hospitals and physicians,” mentioned Sandra Garrett, Jackson & Coker’s President.
Each year, the firm collaborates with an outside, independent research organization in analyzing data compiled from a wide array of published sources. Presented in an easy-to-use slide rule format, the compensation figures provide at-a-glance statistics concerning hourly and annualized compensation for physician jobs nationwide.
The Jackson & Coker 2012 Provider “Contribution to Operations” Percentage Calculator is available in hard copy and online at http://www.JacksonCoker.com. The web version presents this data in an easy-to-use format, which compares average revenue generated by a particular physician specialty against average hourly and annualized compensation for that specialty. With the online tool, hospital administrators and group practice managers can calculate the revenue contribution of their permanent and hourly physician staff in major specialties. The hard copy version includes nationwide numbers of doctors providing patient care in a given specialty and percentages of those physicians who are Board Certified, International Medical Graduates, doctors nearing retirement, and current residents.

“This comparative data paints a good picture of the physician market place – both in terms of the size and makeup of the prospective candidate pool associated with a given medical specialty and the commensurate compensation linked with that specialty,” commented Edward McEachern, the firm’s Vice President of Marketing.
“Using this information, hospitals and other healthcare organizations can better determine locum tenens and permanent employment staffing projections for the near future and beyond,” he added.
