    I would also be interested in what other facilities are doing as we are also going to an RVU based model soon.

    Subject: Hem/Onc NP RVU question

    I work in a non-academic hem/onc clinic with three other NPs, covering both inpatient and outpatient. In the past, we’ve had a set salary that was not RVU-based. We bill independently in the outpatient clinic but do not bill ourselves inpatient. However, our institution is likely going to an RVU-based model for our salaries. As we all know, we all do much more than just see patients, and I’m personally concerned as I do mostly inpatient care where I don’t bill myself. Does anyone have any guidelines or numbers for standards for working RVUs for pediatric hem/onc NPs, or any other general recommendations for this contract negotiation?

    I appreciate any input you may have!
