Geriatrics Compensation, Productivity Benchmarking Surveys

In partnership with Phairify, AGS/ADGAP are developing a series of brief surveys to comprehensively define geriatrician compensation, productivity, and benefits across the numerous settings of care and diverse range of services they provide. 

The current benchmark metrics do not capture the value of a geriatrician to a health system. They are informed by low quality data based on a limited number of survey responses nationally. Further, the data does not capture the heterogeneity of modern-day geriatrics practices which include office-based geriatrics primary care, long-term care, acute care consult and co-management services, and home-based care. AGS/ADGAP launched this initiative to provide data to members to better inform negotiations for compensation, productivity, and work portfolios. 

AGS/ADGAP member participation is key to ensuring that we are building a resource that helps geriatrics academic programs and AGS members. For participating AGS members, Phairify’s specialty-specific professional practice information and career management platform will provide you with access to insight into your value and worth backed by geriatrics-specific compensation and productivity data that you will be able to compare with your peers. You will also have access to specialty-specific data that will help you define your own career paths. Negotiating a contract? You’ll be able to compare compensation levels that are aligned with the criteria personalized to you such as type of practice, years in practice, and geographic area. ADGAP members will have access to aggregated data from a range of studies that we are launching that are focused on type of practice and setting. This will be valuable when negotiating productivity metrics with department chairs and planning for new lines of service. Read more in our press release here and in our AGS Newsletter.
