2017 Staff Salary Survey Results: National

2017 Staff Salary Survey Results: National

Are you paying staff in line with the national benchmarks? Here's our ninth annual Staff Salary Survey, where 1,082 respondents (practice managers and physicians) let us know how much each of their staff members earn. Here are a few highlights:

• Only 35.5 percent of practices have a registered nurse on staff, down from 45.4 percent the previous year. Also, there was a downtick in practices that had physician assistants (32.8 percent to 26.6 percent); nurse practitioners (40.5 percent to 36.9 percent); and care coordinators on staff (20 percent to 16.6 percent).

• Despite this, only 21.1 percent of practices say they have reduced staff over the past year.

• A whopping 87.2 percent of respondents say they will not add staff to adhere to the Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA). The top reason why is because practices are planning on training current staff for MACRA-related roles.

• The number one staffing challenge for practices is increased workload and employees performing dual responsibilities (44.9 percent).

On top of the national averages, be sure to read "Get More Out of Medical Practice Staff" to find out how practices are overcoming the fact that practice staff members are stretched out and have to take on an increased workload.

I don't see Medical Administrative Assistants?

A regional or even more specific breakdown would make this data much more relevant. Also, are the salary amounts for just hourly/salary pay or do they include benefits(health insurance, time off, 401k contributions, etc)?

where can I see data by markets?

Thank you for this data. It is well organized and helpful for benchmarking. Do you plan to publish the salary data regionally - the regions as you divided them in your first slide?

These salaries seem to be low for the Northeast or I'm paying too much

If you are disappointed with your staff's performance, then you are paying too much. If you are pleased with their performance and they are content/happy working for you, you are not paying too much.
