I also advise healthcare providers on joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and contractual arrangements. As a former in-house counsel at a hospital, my uniquely holistic perspective helps me guide healthcare clients juggling day-to-day operational issues and new business ventures.
With the Accountable Care movement in full effect, it’s more important than ever for providers to participate in alternative delivery systems that drive efficiencies and contain costs. I advise my clients from the initial analysis of their existing models through the formation and implementation of new operational models, such as value-based contracting, ACOs, bundled payments and medical homes.
By identifying transaction structures most likely to attract attention from state and federal regulatory agencies, I help my clients address the underlying licensure, fraud and abuse and other issues that often stand in the way in New York. Local and out-of-state clients involved in healthcare M&A turn to me to navigate the New York regulatory environment and minimize the risk of regulatory challenges
Despite the increasing regulatory and reimbursement risks involved, investors continue to look at healthcare businesses for top returns, with a particular focus on areas that generate efficiencies in the evolving healthcare system. As health care providers become more and more accountable for cost and quality of care, they will increasingly become partners, investors and collaborators with digital health and other health technology companies.
