Recently retired, nationally known healthcare valuation expert Mark Dietrich is devoting his time to passing on what he learned over his 45 years in the healthcare arena. Dietrich is putting the finishing touches to his new Engagement Guide to Understanding and Valuing Medical Practice Specialties, which will soon be released by BVR.

Zeroes in: The guide will have chapters devoted to dermatology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, OB/GYN, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery, pediatric, urology, and more. This guide will not go over valuation basics--other books already do that. Instead, it will zero in on the type of valuation analysis necessary for specific types of medical practices. Importantly, each chapter includes a comprehensive calculation of reasonable compensation for one or more providers using an RVU (relative value units) calculator. This methodology eliminates the debunked technique of using compensation surveys.

Each chapter is highlighted by “Author’s Insights,” “Research Tips,” and “Report Tips” drawn from actual engagements. There is also a special chapter on how to conduct the management interview, complete with detailed explanations for each interview item.

The guide will be available shortly from BVR. For those subscribers to the BVResearch Pro platform, the guide will automatically be added to your library.
