MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The compensation data collected in the fourth quarter of 2012 and just released by the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) offers a comprehensive look into the health care industry's chief compliance officer (CCO) annual salary.
"The demand for skilled compliance professionals is skyrocketing. It is imperative that we have solid compensation data at hand. These results were based on data from compliance professionals in the health care industry and will equip our members and their employers with the necessary knowledge they need in order to understand the various elements of compliance professionals pay packages," said HCCA Chief Executive Officer Roy Snell.
The data is aggregated to help individuals and organizations compare their own data to the results of similar operations. To assist CCOs with data comparisons, the research is broken out in a variety of groupings which include: all survey respondents, type, size, and annual revenue of the organization, number of years the chief compliance officer has managed the compliance department, the annual compliance budget managed by the chief compliance officer, the number of compliance elements in which the chief compliance officer is involved, the number of countries in which compliance is managed, percent of the company's legal and regulatory risk areas in which the chief compliance officer is involved, and more.
