2016 Healthcare Transactions: Year in Review

January 6, 2017
Firm Publication

Healthcare transactional activity continued unabated throughout 2016, continuing a years-long trend of sustained growth. This activity is due to a number of factors: innovative technology, pharmaceuticals, and services that expand healthcare options in the market; an aging population that requires an increasing number of services; and the implementation of value-based reimbursement, which presents a seismic shift in how healthcare providers are paid for their services. All these factors have driven providers to consolidate in an effort to expand access to services and products while taking advantage of increased capital and economies of scale, particularly in these sectors:

  • Physician Services
  • Behavioral Health
  • Post-Acute Care
  • Specialty Pharmacy
  • Hospitals
  • Managed Care
  • Healthcare IT
