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.
