Mergers & Acquisitions
Health reform is bringing unprecedented levels of change to all segments of the healthcare industry. And, these changes bring significant challenges and opportunities for organizations. Many struggle with the overwhelming number of new regulations and delivery demands needed to be met to ensure success in the next era of healthcare. Some organizations, however, are poised to embrace the new world order and are seeking partnerships to expand their presence and improve economies of scale. As a result, mergers and acquisitions are on the rise.
iVantage Health Analytics offers a 360 Acquisition Assessment which brings the client full circle from assessment to decision to monitoring for success. That process involves:
Phase I: Preliminary Assessment (Go/No Go)
iVantage Health starts the process by providing national GIS views, allowing clients to assess any market to pinpoint potential acquisition opportunities. Once an opportunity is identified, a Hospital Strength Index™ analysis combined with market profile reports showing demographics, market share, and demand projections gives the client the information needed for a Go/No Go decision.
Phase II: 360 Assessment (Letter Of Intent Signed)
Once a letter of intent is signed, iVantage Health can be a trusted third party to house all the patient data on behalf of the target facility. This gives both parties confidentiality as the process moves forward. iVantage Health brings unique analytic expertise to the process by integrating internal performance data, physician cost and quality data, and external market information to deliver a detailed analysis of the potential of a given acquisition opportunity. Advisory services from some of the industry’s most experienced hospital operators and planners are included to assist with the assessment.
Phase III: Ongoing Performance Monitoring
To bring the project full circle, iVantage Health then offers a full suite of planning and benchmarking tools supported by experienced advisors and analysts to help you maximize your investment.
