While elected officials in Washington, D.C. struggle to “repeal and replace” the nation’s healthcare system, the private sector holds the key transforming the industry, according to a new report by SC&H Capital.
“The private sector can’t afford to wait for Washington, D.C. It’s working diligently to find its own solutions to the nation’s healthcare challenges, which is resulting in some important innovations,” said Christopher Helmrath, Managing Director of SC&H Capital.
“Businesses have the opportunity to deliver game-changing solutions and technologies that enable the personalization of medicine, as well as a deeper, more productive engagement of patients across the spectrum,” Helmrath said. “We’re in a period of exceptional opportunity.”
Healthcare Transformed says the industry is hindered by uncertainty around the Affordable Care Act. And as the debate over Obamacare rages on, already high costs are predicted to soar. For example, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid estimates total healthcare spending will reach $5.5 trillion by 2025, up nearly 62 percent from 2016’s $3.4 trillion.
SC&H Capital launched Healthcare Transformed to help payers, providers, suppliers, and funders successfully navigate the sweeping changes in the industry, indicating this is the start of a transformation that will play out over many years and contribute to the continuous momentum of the healthcare M&A market.
SC&H Capital predicts a greater involvement in healthcare by private sector organizations in 2018 and beyond. The report cites predicted growth in private partnerships, particularly hospitals and physicians’ groups cooperating to improve inpatient and outpatient care. Private equity and investments in healthcare organizations are also expected to increase significantly, and those greater investments are likely to lead to greater innovation.
Healthcare Transformed is the latest report from SC&H Capital’s “Capital Insights” content series. Capital Insights is an educational platform designed to use SC&H Capital’s deep knowledge of mergers and acquisitions to help businesses in varied industries discover their competitive advantage and stay up-to-date on the latest trends.
The experts at SC&H Capital will be featured on a business news webinar to further discuss and analyze the healthcare report. For more information on the webinar, and to register, visit: https://www.schgroup.com/event/webinar-private-sector-not-public-policy-holds-key-better-healthcare/
