2014 State of Hospital Medicine Survey

There are two basic sources of data about the specialty of Hospital Medicine:

  • Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) Compensation and Productivity Survey
  • Society of Hospital Medicine's (SHM's) State of Hospital Medicine Survey

MGMA Compensation and Productivity Survey

The annual MGMA Compensation and Productivity Survey is considered by many in the industry as the “gold standard” with regard to data on physician compensation and productivity. Annually, MGMA conducts two surveys — one on academic physician practices and one on non-academic physician practices. SHM and MGMA have a collaborative relationship and have been supportive of each other's efforts to collect and report comprehensive and accurate survey data. SHM licenses hospitalist data from MGMA which is then integrated into the SHM State of Hospital Medicine Survey Report.

 

SHM State of Hospital Medicine Survey

The SHM State of Hospital Medicine Survey is conducted bi-annually, typically in the January-March timeframe. The most recent survey was completed in March 2014 and the State of Hospital Medicine Report will be available in September 2014.  SHM's survey addresses a wide range of topics, including practice demographics, staffing levels, turnover, staff growth, compensation methods and financial support. The State of Hospital Medicine Report merges data from the SHM survey with data from the MGMA survey to create an in-depth, comprehensive overview of the current status of hospital medicine in U.S.
