About this Episode

Private equity tends to get a bad rap when it comes to health care. Some see it as a disruptive force that prioritizes profits over the patient experience, and that it’s hurting the industry by creating a more consolidated marketplace. Others, however see it as an opportunity for innovation, growth, and more movement towards value-based care. In this episode, Rachel (Rae) Woods invites Advisory Board’s Sarah Hostetter and Vidal Seegobin to discuss the good and bad elements of PE and what leaders can do to make it be a valuable partner to their practices.
