Consumerism’s Impact on Health System Acquisition Strategy

The 2019 American Health Lawyers Association’s (AHLA) Health Care Transactions program took place May 1-3, 2019, in Nashville, TN.

PYA thought leaders joined other distinguished speakers and industry leaders to provide insights into the business and legal issues involved in contemporary healthcare business transactions, including emerging care models, mergers-and-acquisitions trends, financing techniques, deal risk-management strategies, post-integration lessons, and more.

PYA Principal Michael Ramey co-presented with R. Michael Barry, a partner in the Corporate and Healthcare Practices of Arnall Golden Gregory, at the Business Law and Governance Practice Group Luncheon.  Their presentation, “Consumerism’s Impact on Health System Acquisition Strategy,” covered:

  • “Consumerism” and ways in which health systems are adapting to meet consumer demand.
  • Escalating requirements for price transparency.
  • Types of market transactions that enable a consumer-driven strategy.
  • Competition to health systems pursuing consumer-driven strategies.
  • Legal challenges in advising health systems on consumer-driven investments.
