Webinar Overlay The COVID-19 Crisis: Driving Increased M&A Activity in the Provider Space The COVID-19 crisis has had a dramatically negative impact on the financial performance of physician practices. Independent practices are ill-suited to address these challenges, and many will not survive the next year. As a result, hospital-physician alignment is likely to accelerate, and executives will need to assess the antitrust considerations of the various alignment options available. In this webinar, ECG and Davis Wright Tremaine experts: Examine COVID-19’s impact on physician productivity, including recent month-by-month activity trends. Outline various partnership models that health systems and independent physicians may find attractive in this challenging environment. Review recent, relevant antitrust cases and explore the key factors leading to antitrust investigations. ECG consultants Len Henzke and Stuart McClure will be joined by antitrust experts Doug Litvack and David Maas from Davis Wright Tremaine in facilitating this webinar.
