Cardiology compensation and production remain relatively stable year-over-year

2023 MedAxiom Cardiovascular Provider Compensation and Production Survey Report aggregates data on private vs. integrated practice, APP to physician ratios, patient volumes and subspeciality considerations

2023-10-03
(Press-News.org) MedAxiom, the premier source for cardiovascular organizational performance solutions, has released its 2023 Cardiovascular Provider Compensation and Production Survey Report that includes data from the largest number of providers since its debut. The report features a foreword from MedAxiom President and CEO Jerry Blackwell, MD, MBA, FACC, on the consistency of year-over-year data from 2021 to 2022, the importance of a robust pool of data to form the foundation of the report, and the application of data as a strategic planning tool. 

2023 Report Highlights:  

Compensation and production across all of cardiology are relatively stable.  The median total compensation gap between private and integrated cardiologists, which narrowed in 2021, widened in 2022 with compensation increasing for integrated cardiologists and decreasing for cardiologists in private practices.  The ratio of advanced practice providers (APPs) to physicians, as well as production and compensation for APPs, all continued their year-over-year increases with 92 percent of participating programs now including APPs in their care teams.   MedAxiom data through 2022 does not show any meaningful reversion of integrated practices back to private practice despite the impact of private equity on cardiology ownership.  Median total new patient volumes inched up again in 2022 to the highest level recorded, while imaging and procedural volumes across the board saw no significant increases on a per patient panel basis.  After peaking in 2021, cardiac surgeon total compensation decreased in 2022 while vascular surgery went the opposite direction to its highest level recorded.  “The story of the 2023 MedAxiom Cardiovascular Provider Compensation and Production Survey Report is one of consistency between the 2022 and 2021 trends after several unprecedented years of change in the cardiology industry,” said Blackwell. “While the healthcare field continues to evolve, the consistency of year-over-year data may reflect a turning tide, bringing renewed hope for stability and growth in the future.”  

The 2023 report includes 2022 data collected from 198 cardiovascular programs representing 5,806 total cardiovascular providers.   

“This report is an incredibly valuable tool for leaders who can use the data to develop plans and budget sensibly for recognized market trends, provider recruitment and retention strategies,” noted Kevin Mair, MBA, MedAxiom’s vice president of Care Transformation Services.

Optimizing continuous-variable functions with quantum annealing

Optimizing continuous-variable functions with quantum annealing
2023-10-03
Quantum annealing (QA) is a cutting-edge algorithm that leverages the unique properties of quantum computing to tackle complex combinatorial optimization problems (a class of mathematical problems dealing with discrete-variable functions). Quantum computers use the rules of quantum physics to solve such problems potentially faster than classical computers. In essence, they can explore multiple solutions to a problem simultaneously, giving them a significant speed advantage for certain tasks over classical computers. In particular, QA harnesses the phenomenon of “quantum ...

Socioeconomic status and power outages

Socioeconomic status and power outages
2023-10-03
Communities with more socioeconomic vulnerability experience longer-duration power outages than more advantaged communities, according to a study. Research has shown that environmental disasters hit economically and socially vulnerable communities hardest. Scott Ganz and colleagues assessed the unequal impacts caused by the procedures electric utilities follow to restore power to customers after extreme-weather related outages. Using data from eight Atlantic hurricanes that made landfall between January 2017 and October 2020, which knocked out power for a total of over 15 million customers in 588 counties in the Southeast, the authors find ...

Type 2 diabetes diagnosis at age 30 can reduce life expectancy by up to 14 years

2023-10-03
An individual diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 30 years could see their life expectancy fall by as much as 14 years, an international team of researchers has warned. Even people who do not develop the condition until later in life – with a diagnosis at age 50 years – could see their life expectancy fall by up to six years, an analysis of data from 19 high-income countries found. The researchers say the findings, published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, highlight the urgent need to ...

New $81million NIH grant will help U.S. answer urgent need for better dementia care

2023-10-03
Watching a loved one suffer the slow decline of dementia is hard enough. But trying to find care for them that’s high-quality, safe, available and affordable is nearly as difficult, as millions of American families have found out the hard way in recent years. That lack of options stems from a combination of workforce shortages, payment policies and a lack of consistency in dementia care delivery and regulation, according to experts from the University of Michigan and the University of California, San Francisco and their colleagues. Now, fueled by new five-year funding expected to total $81 million from the NIH’s National Institute on Aging or ...

Humans inherit artificial intelligence biases

2023-10-03
New research by the psychologists Lucía Vicente and Helena Matute from Deusto University in Bilbao, Spain, provides evidence that people can inherit artificial intelligence biases (systematic errors in AI outputs) in their decisions. The astonishing results achieved by artificial intelligence systems, which can, for example, hold a conversation as a human does, have given this technology an image of high reliability. More and more professional fields are implementing AI-based tools to support the decision-making of specialists to minimise errors in their decisions. However, this technology is not without risks due to biases in AI results. ...

Globally, consumption of sugary drinks increased at least 16% since 1990
