Perhaps the greatest change to the American healthcare system over the past few decades has been the increased use of clinical co-management arrangements by hospitals to help the challenges of increasing competition, changing reimbursement structures, and shifting operational paradigms. These arrangements are so unique and often so new that many valuation techniques are insufficient to assess their value.
In this 90-minute archived webinar on CD-ROM, Valuing Clinical Co-Management Arrangements, expert appraisers Greg Anderson and Ann Brandt discuss the challenges inherent in valuing this emerging component of the healthcare marketplace. Presentation topics include operational characteristics of co-management agreements and methods of valuation, including income-, incentive-, and cost-based approaches.
