With the implementation of Affordable Care Act moving rapidly forward, the U.S. healthcare industry is faced with a daunting range of strategic choices. Revolutions in Medicare reimbursement will be balanced by an influx of millions of new Medicaid enrollments, while the demands of coordinated care are driving new technological advances and a shift into California-style managed care medicine nationwide. All of these factors are creating immense consolidation pressure on smaller healthcare organizations, service providers and practices and huge opportunities for large organizations to increase their penetration in the marketplace through targeted acquisitions. Beyond a massive M&A movement, hospitals, physicians and even payors are aligning to increase market presence, while private equity players are investing in hospitals, medical technology and service providers to create value and increase market share. A plethora of different business strategies and models are being pursued, but which ones will allow organizations to chart a successful course through the maelstrom of coming change?
Healthcare Deal Making Summit 2013 will bring healthcare executives from today’s most innovative organizations together with leading investors and financial service providers to explore the business strategies, models and investments that will drive success in the post-Affordable Care Act world. They will discuss how changes to reimbursement models and healthcare reform are impacting M&A and deal making, and how the movement to coordinated care will drive integration strategies and the effectiveness of business models. They will put a spotlight on some of today’s emerging business strategies, such as payor-provider convergence, strategic alignment, joint venturing and the next phase of integration, and healthcare transformation through technology innovation – and provide an outlook on their performance.
Factors Driving Valuations & Transactions in a Post-ACA World, the Workshop of the Healthcare Deal Making Summit, will bring together expert advisors who will provide analysis of deal making in the current business environment. Ranging from valuations to acquisition strategies to post-transaction integration, the Workshop will provide the premier opportunity to gain the tools and intelligence required for a transforming market.
