The pace of partnership activity is increasing, and the range of affiliation models is expanding. The consolidating healthcare landscape and the increasing influence of new entrants are breeding new forms of competition, accelerating transaction cycles, and prompting organizations to assess partnership options that both create strategic advantage and achieve new levels of performance.
Capturing value across new and existing partnerships requires expertise across the full partnership continuum. Our teams support leaders through partnership strategy development, deal structuring, transaction execution, stakeholder communications, pre- and post-merger integration, technology evaluation and enablement, and ongoing performance optimization and value capture.
