Partnering with Mega Groups: What Independent Physician Leaders Need to Know

About the Webconference

It's no surprise that consolidation within the independent medical group space is on the rise. A recent health affairs article reported a 25% growth in the median size of independent medical groups across the country between 2013 and 2015.

This presentation examines the growing trend of independent medical groups developing strategic capital partnerships with National Practice Companies, also known as "mega groups," such as DaVita Health Care Partners and Privia Health. We unpack recent transactions in this space offering both benefits and drawbacks of partnering with these types of physician aggregators.

We'll cover:

  • Why other independent medical groups chose to partner with National Practice Companies and the key factors driving their decision
  • How National Practice Companies today are similar and different from the large physician practice management companies of the 1990s
  • What to look for in National Practice Company partners and how to evaluate potential partnership offers
