BURLINGAME, Calif.--MD Ranger, Inc., a leading provider of compensation benchmarks for physician service contracts, today announced that Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford in Palo Alto, CA, has selected MD Ranger's proprietary compensation database to help provide decision support and strengthen compliance for budgeting and contracting with outside organizations for physician services.

Like many hospitals, we need to successfully manage the unique complexities of negotiating physician contracts for on-call coverage, medical direction and related services

"Like many hospitals, we need to successfully manage the unique complexities of negotiating physician contracts for on-call coverage, medical direction and related services," stated James McCaughey, chief strategy officer at Packard Children's. "We look forward to using MD Ranger's benchmarks to help with both internal funds flow budgeting and negotiating contracts with outside hospitals and physicians."

MD Ranger provides comprehensive compensation benchmarks and scope of service data for physician contracts for on-call coverage, medical direction, administrative services, diagnostic testing services and hospital-based physician services to help healthcare providers document and understand market rates for contract negotiation.

Penny Stroud, CEO of MD Ranger said, "We are looking forward to working with Packard Children's Hospital to help them address physician compensation in order to gain a competitive advantage. Right now children's hospitals throughout the U.S. are challenged to meet compliance requirements and control costs. MD Ranger provides a broad scope of benchmarks to help physicians and hospitals understand and document the appropriate payment ranges for administrative and coverage services."
