COVID's Impact on Healthcare: Valuation Implications

Friday, December 17, 2021 10:50 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. ET

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a time of grave uncertainty for the U.S. healthcare industry. While providers are appropriately focused on the “here and now” of taking care of patients, this uncertainty may result in significant, lasting valuation implications related to transactions and arrangements between providers, both in the short- and long-term. This session will discuss the various issues still facing providers nearly 2 years into the pandemic, and the effect of those issues on the healthcare transactional arena. The impact of COVID will be examined not only through the “Four Pillars” of healthcare, i.e., Reimbursement, Regulatory, Competitive, and Technological environments of the healthcare delivery system and healthcare transactions, but also on the use of valuation approaches and methodology.

After this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify some of the current issues facing healthcare providers and transactions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Describe some of the near-term impacts of COVID-19 on each of the Four Pillars of healthcare, i.e., Regulatory, Reimbursement, Competition, and Technology, and how they affect valuation engagements of healthcare businesses
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses of valuation methodologies in a post-COVID transactional marketplace
