Most physician and lay managers in group practices saw modest compensation increases from 1997 to 1998. Medical directors, however, proved the exception, as their median compensation level fell 14 percent. A breakout of the data indicates that the more time spent on administrative duties, and the greater the share of practice revenue derived from capitated contracts, the better a medical director's compensation is.
