The four factors that impact the valuation of healthcare entities

BVWireIssue #101-2
February 9, 2011

Last week’s snow and ice in St. Louis didn’t stop Robert Cimasi (Health Capital Consultants) from presenting to the 21st  Annual Minnesota BV Conference attendees on “Valuation in the Era of Healthcare Reform.”  Via a live telecast, Cimasi explained that not only the recent historical healthcare reform legislation and current economic conditions affect the valuation of healthcare enterprises, but also the “Four Pillars” of the healthcare industry: Regulatory, reimbursement, competition and technology.  All four pillars are in constant flux, and must be considered in all healthcare valuations.

Next week, BVR continues the dialog on healthcare valuation with its teleconference “Imaging Centers: Lessons from an Industry Expert,” part two of the twelve-part series Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation.  On February 15, Douglas G. Smith (Barrington Lakes Group) will share his expertise on the valuation of diagnostic imaging centers, including insight on the complexity of payment schemes, organization structures, and regulatory oversight.  Click here for more information or to register.
