As of January 2, 2015, the Benchmarking for Education in Healthcare Management (BEHM) platform has closed. Since its release in 2012, BEHM has been an under-utilized member benefit, with participation on the decline each year. For 2014, only 16% of program members supplied their full data set, leaving the platform data pool insufficient for reliable comparison and benchmarking. The Compensation & Benefit’s platform has not performed any better, with a mere 7% of AUPHA member faculty utilizing the system.
In the interim, AUPHA will administer the Program and Faculty Compensation Surveys via an online survey tool, as was done prior to BEHM. This process will once again allow for the sense of security when reporting compensation information and also provide PDF reports of the data analysis. Stay tuned in the coming months for more information on these surveys.
