June 14th:  Valuing Clinical Co-Management Agreements

Part 6 of BVR’s Online Symposium on Healthcare Valuation continues features Gregory Anderson (Horne LLP) and Ann Brandt (HealthCare Appraisers). The two experts will focus on what has become perhaps the greatest change to the American healthcare system: the increased use of clinical co-management agreements, many of which are often so unique and new that some valuation techniques are insufficient to assess their value.  Presentation topics will include operational characteristics of co-management agreements and methods of valuation, including income-, incentive-, and cost-based approaches.
