In recent years, there has been a noticeable increase in transactions among physician groups, including IPAs, CINs, MSOs, group mergers, and hospital employment. Each of these models carry distinct advantages and disadvantages depending on the goals, objectives, and local competitive dynamics. Physician owners must have a clear rationale for entering into one of these models or truly understand the potential impact on their practice's long-term financial future.
The goal of this session is to provide an overview on the transaction possibilities for ENT practices.
- Understand trends in integration and alignment options.
- Recognize a potential best path for your practice's future success.
- Understand best practices of MSOs and group mergers.
