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. Is it expected that bankruptcy- and turnaround-situations will increase in the year ahead?

Continental Breakfast and Networking
Senior Housing & Real Estate Roundtable
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-related, real-estate inclusive transactions?
AM Networking Break
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. Investment dollars are expected to increase substantially in this space once federal regulations regarding drug schedules are relaxed. What do investors need to know, regarding issues such as due-diligence, valuation, risk management and State vs. Federal, statutory and regulatory conflicts?
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. orthopedic, dental, etc.) are themselves participating in more strategic roll-ups. What is the state-of-play, and future outlook in this sector?
PM Networking Break
A discussion of strategic roll-ups in the for-profit and non-profit hospital sectors. With the failure to ‘repeal & replace’ the ACA, and higher costs and lower reimbursements from payors, how will hospital roll-ups be affected? What are the deal-flow prospects for the hospital sector over the next 12 months? Are Hospital executives seeing buying opportunities?
