Understanding the Growth & Influence of Private Equity in Health Care

Time & Location

1:00 - 2:00 pm ET

Private equity investment has grown in recent years, playing a significant role in the financing of health care in the United States. Increased involvement may be due to a variety of factors, including limited regulation, rising demand for and costs of health care services, and many opportunities for profitability. Private equity investment in health care impacts several key aspects of care, such as consolidation, costs, quality, and utilization.

This webinar will explore private equity in health care, including a discussion of why private equity investment is difficult to monitor and regulate. Speakers will discuss:

  • The mechanisms behind private equity and overall trends in health care investment
  • Recent research on how investment is impacting health care delivery and consumer costs
  • How regulatory and policy levers are affecting private equity growth
