As we reflect on this past year and prepare for 2018, there are several dynamics that hold great promise to materially alter the healthcare landscape. In particular, a number of mega-deals announced in late 2017 and early 2018 have captured the market’s attention – both individually and as a constellation of activity that may portend what is to come. While the motivations for each of these deals vary, there are factors at work that create an atmosphere wherein this type of integration is not surprising, and suggest we should expect continued movement of this nature.
To put it simply, the industry is ripe for disruption.
The first quarter of the year is a natural time to set the leadership and organizational agenda and refresh areas of priority and focus. Now is the time for teams to actively discuss the current landscape and organizational implications. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, but a discussion of the potential impact of each dynamic demands leadership time and attention.
