AAN represents over 28,000 members and has been inspiring high quality, patient centered care and furthering member professional satisfaction since 1948. Payment reform placed increasing demands on physicians and staff, resulting in financial burdens and enormous consternation to the neurology population. It became critical for practices of all types and sizes to assess their practices and systematically target inefficient operations for process improvement. In support of this mission, AAN and Dynamic Benchmarking successfully developed the Neurology Compensation and Productivity Survey, a powerful tool that addresses the needs of both individual physicians as well as neurology practices as a whole. In addition to collecting critical data, this platform offered a refined suite of reports illustrating key performance indicators as defined by AAN.
“We had been looking for quite some time for just the right benchmarking tool to deliver this valuable data to our members,” said Catherine Rydell, CAE, CEO, of the American Academy of Neurology. “The Dynamic Benchmarking real-time data access and customization of reports impressed us.”
The AAN Compensation and Productivity Survey was a two-part platform that gathered both compensation and benefits data of individual physicians as well as important measures of productivity and efficiency for practice management.
The AAN wanted to provide neurologists with both individual compensation information and practice data, so they would be able to compare their numbers to national benchmarks in order to make smart personal and business decisions. At the time the platform was active, the Neurology Compensation and Productivity Report was the only survey and report dedicated solely to neurology compensation and productivity.
