On this episode of Across the Table, host Kayla McCann Marty is joined by Alexis Rathborne, Managing Director of Investments at Trident, for a discussion on the healthcare market and the investment thesis driving Trident’s team. Alexis explains how she applies Trident’s investment thesis — that identifying the right investment and operating partners is key to successful acquisitions — to the specialized physician investments she reviews.

For Alexis, the right deal is all about finding the right asset within those specialties and the right partners to work in those sub-industries. “We are very good at finding the right partner to bring into that [specific] investment with us and to make sure that we’re using the breadth of our network to think through the entire ecosystem of whatever that particular investment structure is,” Alexis says.

Throughout the episode, Alexis shares insights into popular subsectors of healthcare investing that interest the Trident team, along with some current challenges in making an acquisitions deal. She and Kayla also share opportunities they see in the market and what they anticipate looking ahead.

In the healthcare industry, some significant compliance issues and violations can go unnoticed or implemented unintentionally. When addressing common healthcare mistakes like Stark Law violations or billing and coding issues, should one fix on a go-forward basis, address through indemnification in the deal context, or self-disclose to the government? The answer isn’t as simple as you might think.

McGuireWoods partner Timothy Fry joins host Geoff Cockrell to discuss the most common mistakes he sees in healthcare policy compliance, the potential consequences and the smartest solutions.

Dental support organizations have become an extremely popular investment vehicle in the past two decades. Currently, there is a steady move toward consolidation into larger organizations with better access to capital and efficiencies of scale.

As 2023 legislative sessions wind down, many states are considering bills that would require pre-close review or approval of healthcare transactions by a state agency or attorney general’s office, including one that passed this week in New York.

Although the details vary, these laws would join a growing list of statutes already in place that require pre-close notification of qualifying transactions involving large healthcare entities but also smaller physician and dental groups (or individual providers), management services organizations, pharmacy, medical equipment and health technology companies, and potentially other entities that are adjacent to traditional healthcare services.

Because these laws often entail waiting periods prior to close and disclosure of significant amounts of information — not to mention steep penalties for failing to file — it is critical that providers and other healthcare companies become familiar with these obligations as far in advance of a transaction as possible.

Read on for more information about New York’s new law and similar legislation pending in Illinois, Minnesota, North Carolina and Maine — and be sure to subscribe to ongoing coverage of developments in this area in the McGuireWoods State of Healthcare series.
