Salary Difference between Hospital Administrators and Physicians Over Time

In response to my last pos "Doctors’ Salaries; The Media Is The Message" a reader pointed out that the differences in the increases in the salaries of hospital administrators and physicians over a 30 year period between 1970 and 2000.

I did make the point that physician salaries from reimbursement have not increased.

He said I did not make that difference clear in relationship to time and the increase in healthcare costs.

He asked me to include the below slide to emphasis the point of the disconnect.

Difference in payment
I felt to be complete I should publish this slide.

The opinions expressed in the blog “Repairing The Healthcare System” are, mine and mine alone
