Private equity investment in healthcare has grown over the last decade – but its role can be a hot topic. Some say PE funds innovation and streamlines costs, while others say it affects the quality of healthcare. In this week’s insight, RedSail Technologies Chief Strategy Officer Frances Nahas and Zetema Project Founder and Chair Mark Zitter to weigh in on the debate.

According to recent research and analysis, healthcare PE deals continue to outpace all other deals – both in volume and value – with the majority of activity focused on the healthcare provider space and biopharmaceutical companies. As total healthcare deal value continues to grow, this panel paused to explore critical questions about how the growth in PE-backed healthcare companies affects patients – including their health outcomes, their medical bills and their access to important health services.

The healthcare industry experienced massive disruption in 2020 and continues to face unprecedented times. Persistent challenges presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have forced organizations to rethink their existing practices as well as how they intend to operate in future. Now more than ever, healthcare leaders need to exercise flexibility and be equipped with the right tools and ideas to lead the next generation of health.
