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 investment and healthcare experts with first-hand information on the latest from Washington; and from real-world experiences on the front-lines of our fragmented healthcare system.

How are healthcare entrepreneurs leveraging technology to grow value in their companies and organizations?.  Also oto be discussed: The role that technology itself plays in healthcare transactions and key considerations for successful transactions.

4:25pm

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 space. Hospitals and PE firms are acquiring multi-physician practices; and the practices with common services (i.e. othapedic, dental, etc.) are themselves participating in more strategic roll-ups. What is the state-of-play, and future outlook in this sector?
