May 05, 2020 How Healthcare Executives Are Reacting to Coronavirus Learn More Host Conference

Insights From Intrepid’s Medicate Event: How Are Healthcare Executives Reacting to Coronavirus?

During our recent Medicate Intrepid event, we discussed how California’s top healthcare executives are responding to the COVID-19 coronavirus and how it is affecting their businesses, employees and clients. Leaders in healthcare staffing, urgent care, orthopedics, autism, dental and more shared several important observations and recommendations, including:

Many companies are taking swift actions to manage or contain the virus’ spread:

  • Nearly all companies assembled HR and operational leaders to develop contingency plans for interacting with possibly infected patients and managing workforce shortages
  • Several executives are deploying tests of work-at-home systems to resolve potential continuity issues well in advance of the possibility of broader quarantines
  • Many companies have banned all non-essential travel and attendance of large conferences

Several provider groups are taking immediate precautions:

  • A therapy staffing business is working closely with each of its SNF clients to ensure their traveling therapists are not a conduit for virus transmission
  • Some physician scheduling teams are contacting upcoming patients to request that they cancel in the event of any flu-like symptoms or international travel
  • Some outpatient surgery groups are postponing elective procedures, regardless of the patient’s situation, until further notice
  • One provider of home-based services was already evaluating liability exposure for workers’ comp cases if any of their providers contract COVID-19 in a patient’s home

As a result, several businesses are experiencing and documenting business interruption “coronavirus addbacks”:

  • Some companies are already seeing supply chain disruptions and learning how many of their apparently US-based suppliers rely upon Chinese-manufactured inputs
  • One of the companies has a satellite facility in proximity of another clinic where a patient was diagnosed, which led to their landlord temporarily closing the building
  • Businesses that have historically relied upon a beneficial lift from cash-paying Asian tourists, like infertility and oncology, have seen decreases as these patients are unable to travel internationally

At the same time, several industry sectors are poised for substantial gains during this period, which they hope to sustain long-term:

  • US-based dental labs are seeing a massive increase in volume from dentists who previously sought lower-cost Chinese fabrications
  • Urgent care chains are seeing substantial volume increases with patients presenting with what they fear is coronavirus, but are in fact a much wider variety of traditional ailments
  • Diagnostic labs are experiencing an uptick in testing volume to rule in/out respiratory conditions with symptoms similar to COVID-19
  • Telemedicine technology platforms have seen a substantial increase in new customer in-bound calls, as the benefits of diagnosing patients remotely are becoming more apparent

And, most consistently, everyone is educating their employees on the essential importance of more vigilant hand washing.

Dec 04, 2019 Best Practices for Preparing Your Healthcare Company for a Transaction Learn More Host Live Webinar

Intrepid’s Healthcare Group recently co-chaired a healthcare M&A Webinar with accounting firm RSM which highlighted best practices in preparing a healthcare business for a transaction. Panelists discussed perspectives from both sides of the table: the Head of M&A for one of largest and most acquisitive physician services organizations in the country (Ernest Varvoutis from Team Health) and a C-suite executive for a laboratory services business in one of today’s most exciting new areas of consolidation (Robert Chilton from Ovation Fertility).

Key Takeaways from the Webinar

Get Your Financial House in Order

It is never too early to start preparing, either by developing a system for reporting monthly financial statements, assembling a data room, or obtaining a quality of earnings report, all of which are vital factors in streamlining a diligence process.

Prepare the “Right” Financials

Investors and acquirers want to see GAAP, accrual-based financials. Also, with so many complexities in the healthcare revenue cycle, it is important that you can articulate the impact of reimbursement rate changes and the predictability of any payer irregularities, such as recoupments.

Compliance Is Key

Ensure that experienced healthcare legal counsel has vetted your activities and legal structure. Inappropriate or aggressive tactics will likely be identified in diligence, normalized in a buyer’s review, and potentially blow up a deal.

Invest in Scalable Infrastructure

Regardless of a company’s quality or outcomes, much of the value in a healthcare business lies in the managed services organization that handles its billing, collections, compliance, contracting, HR and other key back-office functions. Healthcare service providers lacking in this area will find difficulty attracting a premium multiple.

It Takes a Village

Don’t try to go at it alone. Hire strong healthcare-focused accountants, legal advisors and M&A advisors to best position you for a successful outcome.
