ECG Management Consultants, Inc. Announces the Commencement of the 2011 "National Pediatric Subspecialty Physician Compensation, Production, and Benefits Survey"

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - ECG Management Consultants, Inc., one of the nation's premier healthcare management consulting firms, today announced the commencement of the "National Pediatric Subspecialty Physician Compensation, Production, and Benefits Survey," year 2011 based on 2010 data. Now in its fifth year, the pediatric survey is recognized as the leading industry source of compensation and production benchmarks in the pediatric subspecialty market.

As organizations continue to engage physicians through alignment strategies and employment arrangements, reliable compensation and production benchmarks are critical, especially in today's challenging recruiting market, for the assessment of physician performance and successful recruitment and retention of pediatric subspecialists. ECG's pediatric survey provides an in-depth review of pediatric subspecialty market trends, including provider compensation, production, benefit packages, recruiting efforts and signing bonuses by specialty, malpractice premiums by specialty, compensation plan design and metrics, and numerous other key data points.

The 2010 survey included 35 of the nation's premier children's organizations with data from nearly 3,000 pediatric subspecialists. Participants in the survey will receive timely and reliable compensation and production benchmarks for medical, surgical, and hospital-based pediatric subspecialties, with sample sizes that meet or exceed other national industry surveys. 

ECG conducts a series of specialty-specific compensation and production surveys, including annual studies in the Northwest, Midwest, and Southeast, which together include data from nearly 12,000 providers. In addition, ECG performs many other research studies in partnership with organizations such as the American Medical Group Association (AMGA) and Thomson Reuters. ECG enjoys the support of many respected provider organizations across our survey products.

Electronic survey instruments are being distributed in February, with submissions accepted through March. Preliminary data will be available in July; however, only those organizations actively participating will have access to the data and reports.
