Regulatory pressures, the shift to value-based care, and the burdens of administrative and reimbursement paperwork have all transformed the healthcare landscape.

Understandably, doctors want to focus on practicing medicine, not on managing piles of paperwork. Private equity firms are happy to oblige. But doctors’ interests are not the only motivating factors. 

Other factors leading to consolidation are the fragmentation of the healthcare industry, the demands for regional platforms, and the pressure for high returns.

A major strategy is focusing on economies of scale, but experienced investors use other tactics such as -- 

  • managing regulatory risk -- particularly associated with Medicare and Medicaid, and the need to manage multiple contracts with multiple entities.
  • equipping physician practice groups to handle improvements while also cutting costs as they move toward value-based care
  • staying ahead of  improvements in electronic medical records systems and in oversight of  claims and reimbursements.

These factors are all contributing to greater investment activity, as well as to a special focus on buy-and-build strategies.

Join more than 20 experts as they assess the outlook for specialty physician practices at this all-day conference, chaired by John L. Pouschine, co-founder and managing member of Pouschine Cook Capital Management LLC.

At this conference, you'll enjoy exceptional networking opportunities. The agenda includes ample time, with session breaks and a buffet lunch, to exchange ideas, swap business cards, and form new relationships.
