About this Episode

In the initial surge of Covid-19, many were expecting a buyer’s market for physician groups. Now that most independent groups have managed through the initial surge, these practices are looking for new partnership opportunities beyond acquisition. The desire for partnership is true on both sides–physician aggregators like private equity firms, health plans, health systems and other medical groups all have their eyes set on independent physicians and are re-evaluating what they can offer. Host Rachel (Rae) Woods sits down with physician practice experts Sarah Hostetter and Julie Riley to talk about the current state of physician consolidation, the types of health care players forming partnerships, and how partnerships can build up and support independent practice.
