The Private Equity M&A Playbook: A Guide for Private Practices


Learn how to position your private healthcare practice in the best possible light, opening the door to financially favorable M&A opportunities from private equity firms and large-scale healthcare networks.

Amidst the backdrop of a challenging economic climate outlined by rising inflation and interest rates and the looming threat of a recession, an impressive 60% of healthcare and life sciences investors1 have expressed their intent to ramp up M&A (merger and acquisition) activity in 2023. Private equity (PE) firms and large healthcare enterprise groups are looking for financially stable practices whose services complement their existing capabilities. At the same time, private practice owners and physicians are grappling with a range of challenges that are causing burnout, including staffing shortages, increased patient volumes, reimbursement cuts, and regulatory compliance requirements.

For private practices, M&A offers the promise of more resources, fewer management responsibilities, expanded service offerings, and the ability to focus on patient care. However, preparing for and executing a successful M&A deal requires careful planning and strategic decision-making.

In this eBook, we explore current healthcare M&A trends from both buyer and seller perspectives and outline business tactics that private practices can use to optimize their capabilities, services, and workflows. We will also share steps that private practice owners can take to prepare their business for an acquisition, highlighting how all-in-one EHR, practice management, and patient engagement platforms enable 360-degree reporting capabilities that make it easier to be acquired or to acquire another practice.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
