2015 physician total cash compensation by specialty
Becker's Hospital Review
Primary care physicians this year are experiencing bigger increases in total cash compensation than their specialist peers, according to the 2015 "Physician Compensation and Productivity Survey" from Minneapolis-based Sullivan, Cotter and Associates. Combined with other findings in the survey, this may suggest the trend toward value-based, coordinated care — which puts primary care physicians in the driver's seat — could be starting to take hold.

CEO succession planning: Recruiting hospital leaders for the future
FierceHealthcare
Every day, FierceHealthcare could fill its daily newsletter with announcements about CEO resignations and retirements. Last year, CEO turnover was 18 percent, one of the highest rates in 15 years, according to the American College of Healthcare Executives. And that high turnover rate likely will continue as hospitals consolidate and merge, leaving the position of CEO in particular risk. But even if one CEO is let go after two hospitals merge, the newly formed organization must look ahead and its board members must consider what skills they want their future senior leaders to possess.

Lack of ICD-10 readiness leads multiple states to crosswalks
EHR Intelligence
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services made clear in its most recent national provider call that Medicare is set to receive ICD-10 codes on Oct. 1, with all its systems up and running and a new figure appointed to the position of ICD-10 ombudsman. However, a handful of states have received permission to use a ICD-9 to ICD-10 crosswalk in order to manage the ICD-10 transition post-Oct. 1, Modern Healthcare is reporting.

Half of critical positions open at some VA hospitals
USA Today
About one in three jobs are vacant at eight of the nation's regional Veterans Affairs healthcare systems, leaving veterans waiting weeks to get care. Nationally, one in six positions — nearly 41,000 — for critical intake workers, doctors, nurses and assistants were unfilled as of mid July, in part due to complex hiring procedures and poor recruitment, according to critics of the nation's network of 139 hospitals and clinics that treat veterans.

Healio
Primary care physicians that worked in accountable care organization practices received higher compensation rates from quality, but not from salary or productivity, where rates were comparable with nonaccountable care organization practices, according to recently published data.

Technology can't take the place of a doctor who listens to you
Quartz
Data are everywhere. But in medicine, data aren't everything. Both patients and practitioners are able to answer many of their medical questions with the click of a mouse or touch of a screen. For those questions that require further investigation, new laboratory tests and high-tech medical imaging can help support (or refute) potential diagnoses. Yet some diagnoses fall through the cracks of these modern investigative tools.

Can doctors afford to ignore the changes in medical practice?
KevinMD
As the CMS Innovation Center rolls out the Next Generation ACO Model, I wonder what doctors are thinking. The Next Generation ACO model ups the ante on risk and reward and is the next delivery model iteration as CMS marches on to 30 percent at risk Medicare in 2016. Some of the docs will generally acknowledge that medicine is changing, but there is often no corresponding change in behavior. Other docs will simply ignore what is being played out right before their very eyes, expressing the same willful blindness that some of my breast patients would, presenting with huge, fungating cancers.

Survey shows providers are happier with older EHRs
By Scott E. Rupp
If there's one thing to rely on in healthcare, it's that there's always some new research or a survey to drive the national conversation. One of the most prolific research firms in the industry is Black Book Rankings, which publishes reports each year based on its research. One of the latest pieces of data from the sector is a new comprehensive "six-month user poll" the firm said it designed to determine the highest-ranked electronic health and medical record software systems for 2015.

Recruiting by numbers
Workforce
The rise of data analytics in human resources and recruiting has many industry pros as conflicted as they are excited. There is a lingering anxiety that the intuition and interpersonal skills paramount to successful talent acquisition programs may be subverted or replaced by computers and complex algorithms. Proponents, on the other hand, argue that data analytics will reinforce the role of recruiters and should be embraced as a key tool of the trade.

3 reasons the evolution of recruiting is about to take a big leap forward
LinkedIn
The recruiting process has been broken for a while - and it’s not the fault of recruiters. They've been working with a system that is severely dysfunctional, and doing the best they can. When job boards came to the internet (i.e. Monster.com), people thought the roles of recruiters would die. Fast forward to today, and recruiters are more important than ever.

How to make staff feel appreciated
Fast Company
Although many employers offer flex time and remote work opportunities, our tether to technology makes it all too easy to keep logging time, long after we should be laying it aside. The problem is not only that too much work makes you less productive, but also that not taking time off makes employees feel like they aren't valued.

Uncommon employee fringe benefits for successful businesses
Small Business Trends

Don't scare away fresh new talent by offering the bare minimum health benefits set by the state and federal governments. Give current and potential employees better options and you’re sure to see improvement in the workplace.
