Healthcare Leaders Survey: 2014 Forecast on Staffing and Executive Compensation

In 2014, the healthcare industry is changing – arguably more than any other industry in the United States. As the Affordable Care Act unfolds, nearly every aspect of the healthcare sector, from payers to hospitals to employers to patients, are beginning to alter how they go about consuming, providing and paying for healthcare.What will healthcare staffing look like in 2014? Who will be leading health organizations during this time of change, and where will most industry turnover occur? This study, based on a survey of C-level health executives, helps answer these questions.This survey of top health leaders also helps forecast the industry’s executive compensation trends. Though much of the recent discussion has focused on physician compensation, changes are on the horizon in C-suite compensation as well, including an impending slowdown in pay increases – at least, from the view of the corner office.
