The surge keeping medical group leaders up at night no longer has anything to do with COVID-19 — it’s in the expense line of their budget.
The latest MGMA DataDive Management and Staff Compensation data set shows double-digit percentage gains in payroll for certain clinical and nursing staff positions from 2021 to 2022. Even as inflationary growth has lost steam in 2023, the increased labor expenses for medical group practices are continuing an upward path.
While the public health emergency around COVID-19 is over, medical group leaders face the ongoing pressure to handle growing patient demand for care in the face of historic difficulties in staffing medical practices and the financial squeeze of stagnating reimbursement and ballooning prices for supplies to operate their businesses effectively.
This data report highlights key trends in total compensation for a wide array of management, nursing and clinical assistant roles, with benchmarks pulled directly from the 2023 MGMA DataDive Management and Staff Compensation report, which includes data on more than 157,000 management and staff positions from more than 2,940 organizations.
