Market Insights: Physician Practice Management

Healthcare dealmaking shows no signs of slowing down coming off a robust M&A market in 2022. In an effort to keep our clients informed, Hyde Park Capital recently compiled a report featuring key insights for physician practice management M&A, healthcare market transactions and more. Below are some of the highlights.

Top Healthcare Market Observations:

  • Healthcare reform, increasing institutional investment in physician practice management, and evolving interests of fellowship-trained physicians will continue to reshape the market in the coming years.
  • Demographics – specifically, population growth and aging – continue to be the primary driver increasing the demand for physicians over the next decade. The U.S. population is projected to grow by 10.6% from 328 million to 363 million by 2034, with a projected 42.4% increase in those aged 65 and above.
  • The sector has continued to experience a surge in group buyouts and recapitalizations, primarily as a result of the changing competitive landscape created by consolidation by both hospital systems and private equity-backed platforms moving from being local to now regionally and nationally focused. Institutional capital has shifted its focus to specialties that generate high margin ancillary revenue from ambulatory surgery services, imaging, and physical therapy.
  • Physician practices continue to take advantage of the opportunity to partner with private equity practices that provide both an optimal cultural fit and a cohesive growth strategy, enabling physician practices to scale significantly more rapidly than they otherwise could independently.
  • A study from Avalere this past year found nearly three- quarters of U.S. physicians now work for corporate entities, such as private equity firms, health insurers and hospitals, up from 69% the year before.
  • As cloud adoption continues to accelerate, more organizations are being exposed to more risks and require added security.
