Grant Period:

Jan 01, 2023 - Feb 29, 2024



Summary of the Project:

Despite increases in private equity acquisition of oncology practices, little is known about the effect on market competition, prices, and quality. This research team will examine the changes in health care quality and prices following private equity acquisition of oncology practices and explore whether these acquisitions exacerbate health disparities among racial groups. This work may be relevant to policymakers and antitrust regulators who are assessing private equity deals.
