Physician Alignment in Hospital/PPM Joint Ventures in 2024

Physician Alignment in Hospital/PPM Joint Ventures in 2024: A McDermott and Chartis Roundtable


Hospitals and health systems are looking to improve the financial performance of their physician practices, and investor-backed physician practice management (PPM) companies have sophisticated practice management capabilities. Health system and PPM joint ventures present exciting opportunities for both parties, but balancing competing priorities – which are sometimes in tension – can be complicated.

Join McDermott Will & Emery and Chartis for a roundtable webinar discussion on these complex but financially rewarding transactions. Hear from advisors with first-hand experience on both sides of the deal table as they discuss:

  • State of the health system/PPM transaction landscape and future trajectory
  • Balancing the desire for financial return with the desire for long-term alignment
  • Market, antitrust and formation considerations for PE investors considering hospital/PPM JVs
  • Physician buyouts and physician alignment strategies that work
  • Functional economic models after ownership transition
  • What to plan for when one partner is a non-profit

Attendees can submit questions and topics of interest at registration to tailor the discussion to the topics that matter most to their business goals.
