Using Visits per Day Worked to better monitor physician productivity

Is a physician working harder and getting paid less? Here’s a way to answer this age old question.

Take a look at calculating Visits per Day Worked. Start by counting all Visits for the reporting period and then tally up each work day. Make sure to exclude all days off including vacations or weekends. Divide your Visits by the number of work days to get a visits per work day ratio. You can calculate this number monthly, for at least 6 months, to produce a trend.

To figure out if a physician is truly working harder and getting paid less, calculate a monthly average of payments per visit using fully adjudicated claims for six months. Compare the resulting trend against the trend for Visits per Day Worked. If the trend line for Visits per Day Worked is increasing while Payments per Visit is decreasing, the physician may indeed be working more while getting paid less. If the inverse is true, your physician may be seeing less actual patients but those visits may include more complicated patients with visits of increased complexities.

Conclusion
