Picture2.pngAcademic Compesnation Data Set

Benchmarks reported for providers who have less than 100% billable clinical activity are standardized to 100% billable clinical. For example, if a provider is indicated as 50% billable clinical with 1,000 work RVUs, their billable clinical percentage is multiplied by 2 to standardize to 100% (50%*2 = 100%), and the same multiplier is used for their work RVUs (1,000*2 = 2,000).

Note: Unless specified as Standardized (Std) or otherwise, all academic productivity benchmarks reported are for providers with more than 67% billable clinical activity.
