STATE of the HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY
The conference opens with a Keynote panel on the “State of the Industry” from the proverbial ’36-thousand feet.’ The panel will be made up of leading healthcare experts with first-hand information on the latest from Washington; and real-world experiences from the front-lines of healthcare system. Where in the healthcare sector, are investors looking for opportunities? Conversely, which healthcare models are investors avoiding? Why? What can investors expect to encounter when investing in or acquiring healthcare firms in Asia and ROW (rest-of-world)?
A discussion of roll-ups in the for-profit and non-profit hospital sectors. With the failure to ‘repeal & replace’ the ACA, how will regulatory roll-backs affect reimbursements? Will this disruption be good or bad in terms of generating deal-flow? What are the prospects for M&A deal-flow in the hospital sector in the next 12 months?
PM Networking Break
Healthcare Partnerships & Joint Ventures Roundtable
When does it make more sense to enter into joint ventures and partnerships than engaging in outright mergers or acquisitions? How are some of the most innovative transactions, and business models being structured? A discussion of the pros and cons.
Roll-Ups and Multi-Physician Practices
One of the fastest-growing areas of healthcare M&A deal-flow is occurring in the multi-physician practice sector. Hospitals, PE firms and Health Insurance companies are acquiring multi-physician practices; and the practices with common services (i.e. orthopedic, dental, etc.) are themselves participating in more strategic roll-ups. What is the state-of-play, and future outlook in this sector?

An update on investment opportunities in real-estate related healthcare deals. What are the unique issues and deal-flow projections for assisted living, skilled nursing, ‘active adult’ communities, and other healthcare real-estate, related sectors
Healthcare Technology and Leveraging the HealthCloud

How are healthcare entrepreneurs leveraging technology to grow value in their companies and organizations?.
