BOCA RATON, Fla., May 14 – HealthCare Appraisers, Inc., a leading healthcare valuation firm with offices nationwide, released its 2020 On-Call Summary Review of on-call coverage trends and statistics. The publication includes information related to salient features of compensated call coverage arrangements and various trends HealthCare Appraisers has observed, including statistics associated with payment and coverage structures from HealthCare Appraisers’ database. A copy of the publication is available at:

“We captured data from 9,000 on-call coverage analyses across a five-year period performed on behalf of healthcare facilities of varying sizes across the country,” said Adam S. Polsky, MBA, CVA, partner at HealthCare Appraisers and author of the publication. “Facilities ranged from small, rural hospitals to multi-facility, regional and national health systems. We hope this publication is a useful resource and helpful to contracting and negotiation needs.”

As the publication outlines, despite the steady growth of urgent and express care centers nationwide, the demand for physician on-call coverage of hospital emergency departments remains high. In parallel, compensating medical staff physicians for call coverage continues to be fairly routine based on numerous potential reasons detailed in the publication.
