Abstract

Physicians underperforming at less than 80% of their expected wRVU production were targeted for a three-part survey with their Departmental Chairman. 119 physicians (16%) of the clinical staff underperformed their clinical wRVU compensation, resulting in $6.8 million in lost reimbursement. Evaluation of work effort showed 94% of underperforming physicians lacked enough clinical hours. Finally, barriers to physician productivity, beyond physician control were evaluated.
