Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Angela Humphreys was a guest on the How It’s Done podcast to discuss healthcare M&A and private equity investment trends, value-based care, women leadership in healthcare and other industry-related topics. The conversation also included predictions about the developments in healthcare in 2021.

In terms of IPOs in the healthcare sector, Angela said “There’s a real push toward value-based care and having platforms to be able to take risks and manage populations. And the interest in that, I think, is evidenced by the multiples that those companies had when they went public. And so I think digital health, telehealth, value-based care platforms are all areas where we’re going to continue to see growth and investment.”

When discussing investment trends in 2021, Angela stated “if Q1 to date is a predictor, I think we’re going to continue to see robust activity in the healthcare M&A space … And so I think you’re going to continue to see consolidation. You’re going to continue to see investment.”
