HEA1826 - Post-Acute Joint Ventures: Market Overview and Case Study

Nov 9, 2018 8:00am ‐ Nov 9, 2018 9:15am


Description

Historically, joint venture transactions were driven by commercial reimbursement, management expertise, cost efficiencies, and access to capital.

The post-acute segment is in a strong position to benefit from these transaction drivers and health systems have participated in a flurry of joint ventures with specialty management companies.
