GIC HIMSS | HIMSS NYS - Mergers & Acquisitions – The Trials, Tribulations, and Lessons Learned
Merger and Acquisition (M&A) activities continue to be major drivers in the healthcare market that have diversified into:

Health Systems merging with Health Systems
Physician Practices merging with Physician Practices
Health Systems acquiring Physician Practices
Managed Care Organizations affiliating with Health Systems
Private Equity and Private Capital funding many of the above models.

While the attraction is appealing, M&A initiatives can be time consuming, financially risky, and not guaranteed for overall success.

To help those who are considering, currently leading or executing a merger or acquisition, we have assembled a panel of industry experts who will share their experiences with these endeavors, both good and bad, so that you as the audience can learn and reflect as you pursue your own initiatives. Our first session will focus on considerations for any type of merger or acquisition, including topic areas concerning:

Patient Populations
Financial Environment
Regulatory Framework
Physician and Referral Networks.

Together, the Greater Illinois Chapter of HIMSS (GIC) and the NYS Chapter of HIMSS, will provide a series of events on this topic given the volatility of today’s market.

We hope that you can join us for this very timely and informative session.
