What’s Driving Consolidation in Healthcare? w/ Amanda Hansen, AdvancedMD – 087
Mergers and acquisitions activity in healthcare ranked third behind energy and media entertainment in terms of total deal volume in the first half of 2018. And from what we can tell, things didn’t slow down after that. Of course, you have the big deals like CVS-Aetna, Cigna-Express Scripts, and Amazon-Berkshire Hathaway-JP Morgan. And the much-hyped entrance from tech giants like Apple. But we’re also seeing a ton of consolidation in specialty practices, software companies and more. The rise of value-based payment is certainly a factor, but the market is complicated and there are many, less obvious factors at play.
On this episode, Amanda Hansen, Vice-President of Strategy and Business Development for AdvancedMD breaks down the M&A activity and industry trends to help us understand what’s happening, and why.
