Application: performance pay case analysis

The “Performance Pay for MGOA Physicians” case, set in an academic medical center, illustrates the implementation of pay-for-performance as an HR strategy.

Review the case, and consider the following questions:

·         What physician activities or behaviors are rewarded by the plan?

·         What are the questions and concerns raised in this case? What other concerns (not mentioned in this scenario) could be important?

·         What are the intended—and unintended—consequences of the plan? What do you think are the pros and cons of this performance pay program?

·         What modifications, if any, would you recommend to this plan?

·         What insights from this situation might be applied to non-physician groups within a health care organization? Consider potential differences between physician and non-physician compensation systems.

Write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you:

·         Briefly summarize the compensation plan that has been developed by MGOA.

·         Analyze strengths and challenges related to this plan, and propose potential modifications that could address issues or concerns associated with this plan.

·         Explain how elements of this plan might be applied for non-physician employees, noting differences between various compensation systems.
