Healthcare is going through tremendous transformation and clients need us now more than ever, particularly as it relates to physician/hospital integration. When clients get buried in “the deal,” they can sometimes miss critical issues that impact fair market value. In helping our clients structure physician/hospital arrangements, we are often in a unique position to point out areas of concern and suggest workable solutions that are sound and compliant with healthcare regulatory rules, so clients can avoid potential severe, far-reaching penalties.
I have more than 15 years of direct healthcare valuation experience with clients ranging from national hospital chains to small, rural facilities, and enjoy this niche industry. I am privileged to speak at the national level for respected organizations including AICPA and the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA), and have authored several articles and a chapter on healthcare valuation for AHLA ‘s The ACO Handbook.
I very much enjoy the specialization of health care and providing valuation services. It is fun to be a part of an industry that is evolving constantly. I stay involved in the changes as an active member of the AHLA Hospital and Health System Practice Group, the LA HFMA Program Committee, and as an AHLA FMV Affinity Group volunteer.
