The rise of these emerging healthcare organizations (EHOs) to address value-based reimbursement initiatives has led to a growing number of ...

Mundy cover some of the top challenges hospitals face and how these challenges have changed the way hospitals conduct business.
When a physician gets divorced, the value of his or her ownership interest in the practice is often included as an asset for property distribution purposes.

Compensation survey data do not provide a complete and precise depiction of the physician marketplace for any physician deal. The authors debunk the current “survey says” paradigm and provide the foundation for a completely new standard for the fair market value of physician clinical compensation.
The U.S. healthcare industry is very large, complex, and changing rapidly. This highly regulated industry is also a significant user of valuation services. “Fair market value” opinions are commonly requested in connection with various physician compensation arrangements, and failure to consummate transactions at fair market value can result in substantial financial consequences. As such, healthcare advisors need to know the valuation and compliance issues associated with various physician compensation arrangements so they can drive value ...
Regulatory as well as financial concerns are driving the need to address the issue of health systems losing money on acquired physician practices.

Alternative care access points—retail clinics, urgent care centers, freestanding emergency departments, and micro hospitals—have proliferated. In many cases, these programs are thriving in a consumer-focused, value‐based healthcare environment. Hospitals and health systems are recognizing the potential value of developing and integrating these alternative care sites. In addition to supporting population health management, these access points can be profitable and can provide a relatively low‐cost approach to new patient acquisition and the potential for downstream revenue.

Healthcare valuation expert Mark Dietrich, who has more than 40 years of experience designing and valuing buy-in and buyout agreements, recently wrote an article for the Business Valuation Update identifying a number of best practices for both valuation analysts and consultants with respect to these matters.
Valuation is part art and part science, but there is always a risk that some of the art may be lost or not understood. One of the more routine engagements an appraiser or valuation analyst may encounter is to value a practice for a buyout, whether it be due to an expected retirement, death or disability, or a buy-in. Such an engagement can be significantly more complex than appears on the surface. Join Mark Dietrich ...

Believe it or not, the U.S. government does a few things right when it comes to the healthcare industry. One such area is providing a vast treasure trove of industry data that can be used in healthcare valuation, including both business and compensation valuation. As agencies such as CMS seek greater transparency in healthcare, the government is making all the data it collects through its reimbursement processes available for public use. Yet, many in the ...
Estimating cost of capital when valuing healthcare entities can be challenging due to (among other factors) the regulatory environment, the impact of changes in reimbursement, the size of the entities, the lack of guideline public companies, and other entity-specific risks. Kate Morris and Matt Warren will establish a logical framework for developing cost of capital in such entities within the context of the spectrum of market returns and the observed rates of return in capital ...
No specific professional standards govern the content and requirements for appraisal reports in compensation valuation (CV), and there is very little professional literature on this topic. In the BVR/AHLA Guide to Valuing Physician Compensation and Healthcare Service Arrangements, author Timothy Smith looks to the business valuation standards and discusses how to adapt and expand on these standards to address areas that are unique to CV practice and appraisal issues.
