SullivanCotter, the nation’s leading independent consulting firm in the assessment and development of total rewards programs, workforce solutions, and technology and data products for the health care industry and not-for-profit sector, is excited to announce the release of its 2021 compensation and productivity benchmarks for nearly 260,000 physicians, physician leaders and advanced practice providers nationwide.

Organizations are currently struggling to understand how to utilize the new survey benchmarks and effectively adjust for a number of unprecedented changes from last year and, as a result, are looking for more reliable and stable datasets moving forward.

“This year more than ever, hospitals and health systems require critical data-driven insights as they look to normalize the impact of COVID-19 on clinical workforce compensation and productivity and address substantial modifications to the 2021 Physician Fee Schedule. To help clients plan for 2021 and beyond, SullivanCotter will be offering enhanced analyses and reporting as well as guidance on best practices for evaluating the newly released survey data,” said Chris Brandt, Senior Director, Data Analytics and Reporting, SullivanCotter.

In addition to standard, non-adjusted benchmarks as historically reported, organizations who purchase an eligible survey report will receive complimentary COVID-19-adjusted work RVU and TCC per work RVU data – providing greater insight into the effect of the pandemic and enabling hospitals, health systems and medical groups to quickly measure the impact on compensation and productivity within their organizations.

Newly available for purchase this year are three tiers of detailed productivity reporting– including monthly work RVU volumes by specialty in addition to individual CPT code level details. When combined with SullivanCotter’s innovative Benchmarks360™ platform, organizations can more effectively analyze and visualize this data with access to dynamic filters, multi-year coding profiles, and annual updates to CPT codes.

SullivanCotter will also be offering adjusted benchmarks for total cash compensation, work RVUs, collections and other related ratios for use in conjunction with the 2021 Physician Fee Schedule. This includes proprietary data from SullivanCotter's 2021 surveys as well as other third-party market datasets (with appropriate licensing and non-disclosure agreements in place).

The 2021 surveys are now available for purchase at To learn more about this year’s enhanced reporting and analyses, please contact or dial 888.739.7039.
