CA­ROLE STRE­ICHER

Part­ner, KPMG’s health­care and life sciences deal ad­vi­sory prac­tice

Modern Healthcare - - News -

We’ll con­tinue to see con­sol­i­da­tion in the form of roll-ups— physi­cian prac­tices, spe­cialty groups. There will be mod­er­ate in­vest­ment and fairly high val­u­a­tions in home health, pri­mary-care physi­cians, spe­cialty physi­cians and re­tail­cen­tric med­i­cal groups. Other ar­eas where we ex­pect to see sig­nif­i­cant amounts of in­vest­ment ac­tiv­ity and sig­nif­i­cant val­u­a­tions are health­care IT and care man­age­ment so­lu­tions. What’s driv­ing that is not nec­es­sar­ily in­no­va­tion, but this need for scale. We’re still go­ing to see a ton of con­sol­i­da­tion in some of these ar­eas over the next five to 10 years, be­cause it’s a nec­es­sary re­quire­ment as we con­tinue on this jour­ney.
