Today’s Physician Organizations Have Evolved: From Contractual Arrangements to Strategic Joint Ventures

Following the passage of the Affordable Care Act Health in 2010, the U.S. Healthcare market was thrust in a period of uncertainty and transformational change in an attempt to fundamentally alter the way in which health care is delivered and reimbursed. Physicians and physician organizations are central to these change efforts, and with declining reimbursement from government and commercial payors, new and evolving payment models, heighted compliance costs, and significant administrative burdens, many physicians are leaving private practice or considering other strategic alternatives.

For more than two decades, VMG Health has provided trusted, expert valuation and transaction advisory to the healthcare industry. We have extensive experience working with physician organizations and their strategic partners to evaluate alignment models including:

  • Single- and Multi-specialty practice acquisitions
  • Transactions involving physician-owned ancillary services
  • Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)
  • Physician Hospital Organizations (PHOs)
  • Independent Practice Associations (IPAs)
  • Physician compensation and professional services arrangements
  • Management Services Organizations (MSOs)
  • Real estate transactions and leasing arrangements
  • Capital Asset transactions and equipment leasing arrangements

VMG Health’s experts provide independent fair market value (FMV) and commercial reasonableness (CR) opinions, strategic value consulting, financial advisory, and litigation support services to Physician Organizations throughout the United States.
