Introduction:  Watson-Wyatt v. Solucient  --  Compare Chaplaincy Market Study

Here we show the relevant data used by the Texas State Auditor's office to determine the market for Chaplains from the Watson-Wyatt survey.  Though a seemingly normal tool, the survey upon closer examination is not as significant in reflecting "true" market data of Chaplains, especially TDCJ Chaplains.  In the light of the robust data in the Chaplaincy Market Study, a very burdensome question of integrity arises with respect to the Texas State Auditor’s assessment of the chaplaincy market:  why did the auditors avoid the VA, the Federal Bureau of Prison, and military chaplaincy data?  The numbers are astounding.

Furthermore, we compare the Watson-Wyatt list of 551 hospitals surveyed with the "Top 100 Hospitals" selected by Solucient.  In comparison to Solucient's 460 Top 100 hospitals from 1993-2000, Watson-Wyatt come up even shorter in credibility, since Solucient analyzes ALL the hospitals reporting to the U.S. Medicare Program. 

The Watson Wyatt Personnel Compensation Report[1] was used as a significant part as an indicator or standard for chaplain salaries.  It is large report, both volumes covering a broad range of health care positions in over 1,300 pages, excelling for the most part in analysis of the health care profession compensation.

In analysis of the TDCJ Chaplains classification, the auditor's office used this reference work and a few other requests from around the nation to come to their conclusion that essentially substantiated the low station of Chaplains in the Texas Classification "B" Schedule.  The following is an analysis of this report with respect to the report's applicability to TDCJ Chaplains.

1.  Introduction Watson-Wyatt Survey of 547 Hospitals 
--  Compare Chaplaincy Market Study

The entire report was culled from surveys from 551 hospitals.  This list was taken from this survey analysis:  Wyatt Data Services, ECS Hospital and Health Care Professional, Nursing and Allied Services Personnel Compensation Report, Volume 1 & 2, 1999/2000, Rochelle Park, NJ:  Wyatt Data Services, 1999.  Watson Wyatt Worldwide provides a number of reference works related to compensation surveys, various kinds of personnel forms and other personnel guidebooks.  There are 547 hospitals listed here, and the author if this admits at a few could be missing as a result of scanning errors, even though there was an attempt to correct all errors.

Here is a selection of statistics from the Watson-Wyatt charts illustrating the variety of hospital organizations from which the surveys came.  Note that these are only a selection:

Watson-Wyatt Survey 1:  Kinds of Hospitals Responding[2]

The above instructs us that the following analyses of positions came from surveys from 551 hospitals across the US, 111 from the South Central Region (that include Texas) of the several bed sizes.  There are several reverse correlations between TDCJ and the general hospital organizations.

For instance, the ratio of beds/patients to employees is almost opposite to that of the prison system.  As seen in the following numbers of chaplains in the South Central Region and across the US, the ratio of Chaplains per number of beds/patients is about one Chaplain per 150-200 patients, whereas in TDCJ it is about one Chaplain per 1,000 offenders.[3]  Given that Chaplains in both groups are available to both employees AND clients, clearly, the employed Chaplain is first of all and primarily available to the clients.

TDCJ Chaplains in general are responsible for five times the number of clients or offenders, who in themselves are among the states most troubled persons.  And like the hospital Chaplain, the prison Chaplain deals with the families of the clients. 

Watson-Wyatt Survey 2:  Selected Data on Chaplains

The charts above and below are data selected from the survey.  The data below is from non-profit hospitals on chaplains.

Watson-Watson Survey 3:  Selected Data on Chaplains – Not-For-Profit

Additionally, only 12 hospitals reported chaplains in Texas, reflecting only 39 Chaplains;  of those, only 10 hospitals reported salary ranges of Avg. Min. 26.9, Avg. Mid. 34.3 and Avg. Max 41.5.[4]  Furthermore, in the listing for "US For-Profit Hospitals" 6 hospitals reported a Avg. Min. 31.7, Avg. Mid. 39.9 and Avg. Max 48.1.[5]

2.  Solucient’s 460 Hospitals that Made the 100 Top Hospitals List 
--  Compare Chaplaincy Market Study

The 460 hospitals that made HCIA 100 Top Hospitals list from 1993-2000 are “THE” most significant benchmark for hospitals in the world.  These hospitals are listed with the Watson-Wyatt Hospitals.  In the list, where Soluciant hospitals are listed, at the end of each winner are the years in which that particular hospital made the Top 100 list, followed by the number of years:  for instance, "Brigham & Women's Hospital  Boston, MA  1993-2000   8" means that it made the list all eight years, from 1993 to 2000, and "8" is the total number of years.

"Solucient was formed by the merger of health care information leaders - HCIA-Sachs and HBS International.  HCIA-Sachs made its mark providing strategic information, market intelligence, and clinical and financial analysis;  HBSI became the nation's most influential source of process and outcomes information and tools.  Solucient powers health care decisions for providers, payers, managed care organizations, large employers, pharmaceutical companies, and consultants.  Solucient maintains the industry's leading health care database, containing more than 96% of patient discharge records.  Serving a client base of more than 5,500 customers, the company provides information resources to more than 3,000 hospitals, as well as 18 of the 20 largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the United States."[6]

“The data used in the 100 Top Hospitals [1999] study come from HCIA’s hospital and DRG databases.  The hospital database contains more than 800 data elements for over 6,000 U.S. acute care and specialty hospitals.  Virtually every general acute care hospital with 25 or more beds in service is included in the database, as well as all hospitals with bonds rated by Standard & Poor’s Corporation.  The primary source of these data is the Medicare cost report, which is filed annually by every U.S. hospital that participates in the Medicare program.”[7]  

For the 1999 report, the study group included 1,266 small hospitals (25-99 acute beds), 1,074 medium hospitals (100-249 acute beds), 219 large community hospitals (250+ beds), 293 teaching hospitals and 94 major teaching hospitals.[8]  See these pages for more information:  http://www.100tophospitals.com/studies/downloads/100top99natl.pdf and View winners by state   

Solucient and their 100 Top Hospitals list are recognized worldwide for success benchmarking in healthcare.  They are the leaders.

3.  Combined Hospitals Lists & Observations  
--  Compare Chaplaincy Market Study

This combination follows this scheme.  The hospitals in "Black" type and in the Times Roman font are Solucient’s 460 hospitals that made the 100 Top Hospitals list 1993-2000.  The Watson-Wyatt 547 hospitals are in "Blue" type and in the Arial font. 

The few (37) hospitals in the Watson-Wyatt list that are also included in Solucient’s 100 Top Hospitals list are placed in "Red" and have ++ marker placed at the beginning.[9]  When there appears to be a doubt, without verification, credit was given and the Watson-Wyatt hospital was placed in "Red" with a "?" at the end.

The combined listing shows 1,005 hospitals.  Only 37 of the 547 hospitals in the Watson-Wyatt list are among Solucient’s 460 hospitals that made the 100 Top Hospitals.  Furthermore, and very relevant to Chaplain Professional Equity and the Pursuit of Excellence is that only one (1) Watson-Wyatt hospital was on the 100 Top Hospitals list AND in Texas too:  Parkland Hospital in Dallas. 

Therefore, the relevance of the Watson-Wyatt list in comparison with the other data in the fuller report on Chaplain Professional Equity is questionable at best.  When another question is asked, then the Texas State Auditor’s assessment comes into serious and ominous question. 

Why did the Texas State Auditor office chose to use the Watson-Wyatt Survey of “hospital chaplains” – as they did – and NOT look at the compensation for the Federal Bureau of Prison (FOBP), Veterans Administration (VA) and military compensation of chaplains? 

This is a most serious question.  The Texas Auditors used faxed returns from a small number of other state prisons and the Watson-Wyatt Survey to determine the TOTAL “market” for Texas chaplains.  The Texas assessment is bogus at best, insidious at worse:  one or the other, most likely the later, for we (I in particular) cannot believe they had no knowledge of the existence of the FBOP, VA or military. 

It should be so obvious to everyone that Texas Prison Chaplains[10] do a job far more similar to the FBOP and military than free world hospital chaplains.  A few chaplains met with representatives of the Texas State Auditors Office on Chaplain Professional Equity in early 2001 of the 77th Texas Legislature.  This meeting was facilitated at the direction of Rob Junnel when during the review of H.B. 2460 it became apparent that no one had really looked at the Chaplain Professional Equity proposal.[11]  That very serious and ominous question was clearly asked.  There was no reply.  None.  That was not good stewardship of public trust.
