About the Session
Private equity and venture capital investment in healthcare have reached historic highs, fueled by market interest in healthcare as a growing share of global gross national product, and as a sector ripe for consolidation, transformation and disruption. At the same time, health systems are pursuing their own investment strategies to find new sources of revenue to diversify business models and to engage as a disruptor. This panel brings together seasoned leaders to discuss why there is so much investor capital being deployed in healthcare and what are the key investable themes investors are pursuing. Presenters also will explore what are the critical success factors for investors and what are the lessons learned from failures. As private equity increasingly engages in healthcare by working with industry players, what part do mergers and acquisitions play with spinoffs and build ups, and how can health systems best work productively with private equity and venture funds? Lastly, presenters will consider whether health systems can go it alone, and what role does the changing policy and reimbursement environment play in investment decisions?
