When Worlds Collide: The Effects of Private Equity on Health Care

Friday, April 1, 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Kline Institute of Trial Advocacy

March 21, 2022


Registration: 8:00 a.m. with a Continental Breakfast

CLE Credits: 3.5 – 2.5 substantive credits; 1 ethics credit

What happens when private equity acquires a health care provider? Do investors increase efficiency and reduce costs or just increase billing? And what are the effects on the quality of care and jobs, an issue that a new initiative of the Biden administration is examining? This conference will explore the outcomes when private equity takes over nursing homes, hospitals, and physician practices. Expert panelists will address private equity’s growing presence in American health care, its corporatization of long-term care, government enforcement of billing compliance, and legislative initiatives to increase ownership transparency. Attendees will come away with a clearer picture of health care’s new financial frontier.
