Health care mergers and acquisitions are hardly new, but many recent transactions involve vertical integration: new-in-kind combinations of major players resulting in unprecedented scale and scope. With aligned incentives, complementary data sets, and combined assets, these vertical partnerships are redefining players' roles and disrupting market dynamics.

Instead, use this research report to plan for integrators' possible moves, forecast potential effects on your organization, and create a plan to defend against or capitalize on the changes.
