Welcome to Middle-Market Healthcare M&A – Los Angles

12:20pm

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 our healthcare system. Where in the healthcare sector, are investors looking for opportunities? Conversely, which healthcare models are investors avoiding? Why?

1:25pm

Hospital Roundtable
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?

Private Investors Roundtable
Healthcare investing from the POV of private equity, VCs, REITs, and other financial buyers. How are financial investors sizing up deal-flow opportunities in the next 12 months?

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?

Investment Opportunities in Medicinal Cannabis
At least thirty (30) states have broadly legalized the use of cannabis — and cannabis infused products — for both medicinal and recreational use. This panel will address the investment and M&A opportunities in the healthcare use of medicinal cannabis and related enterprises. Investment dollars have increased substantially in this space, and have almost doubled year-over-year since 2017. What do investors need to know, regarding issues such as due-diligence, valuation, risk management and State vs. Federal, statutory and regulatory conflicts?

10:10am

Healthcare Technology and Leveraging the HealthCloud
A discussion of the move toward patient-centric and interoperable models is shifting healthcare IT transactions to focus on Cloud, Cybersecurity, Big Data, and automation, including Artificial Intelligence (AI). How are healthcare entrepreneurs leveraging technology to grow value in their companies and organizations?.  The role that technology itself plays in healthcare transactions and key considerations for successful transactions will be discussed. Finally, what are the investment and M&A opportunities in healthcare IT companies themselves?
