e-Health execs have lower salaries

E-Health may be a buzzword in Washington and a much discussed goal in healthcare circles, but so far the executives that lead the companies at the forefront of health IT are making a lot less money than their colleagues in other areas of healthcare. AIS Health released its 2005 executive compensation survey this week. Topping the list is Cerner CEO Neal Patterson - who takes home $1.69 million. Not far behind is Emdeon's Martin Wygood, who is making $1.63 million. The study does not include data on long term compensation such as stock grants to executives.
