Physicians continue to line up to sell their practices and hospitals are buying them up at a rate not seen since the 1990's. But it is different this time around -- prices and terms bear little resemblance to that time.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will only accelerate this trend. The chance to leave the vast uncertainty health reform created and the complexity, business risks and stagnant economics for the perceived security of a larger organization is attractive to be sure. But selling isn't always a slam-dunk solution.

This audio conference, directed at the physician and the administrator or practice manager, examines this trend, the process of selling and...the alternatives to selling.

While physician practice sales were popular in the 1990's, what is different this time around? Understanding the sales process including practice valuations, negotiating strategies, along with the do's, don'ts, and pitfalls of selling out, will help participants decide if now is time to explore this option.

Tune in and hear Randy Bauman on the following:

  • The current state of the physician practice sales marketplace
  • Why physicians sell
  • The impact the The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will have on practice sales
