Healthcare Valuation

Thriving in the ever-evolving healthcare landscape of new reimbursement and care delivery models has become increasingly challenging for healthcare enterprises. Most organizations navigate through this changing climate via acquisitions and alliances with strategic partners. These enterprises must complete transactions quickly while demonstrating compliance with complex healthcare regulations, including the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute. Additionally, ensuring fair and compliant healthcare compensation valuations is crucial to attracting and retaining top talent.

Through this process, it is prudent for them to rely on an independent valuation professional to produce sophisticated, supportable, and efficient valuations to comply with these requirements.

Partnering with an experienced valuation professional with deep knowledge of the healthcare industry and regulatory environment is a prudent step for healthcare enterprises. Stout develops independent, detailed, and thoroughly researched fair market value and commercial reasonableness opinions that withstand regulatory scrutiny.
