Centri’s Kevin Dadey Featured in Modern Healthcare: How M&A Scrutiny in Washington Could Affect Healthcare Deals

Centri’s Managing Director and Healthcare Practice Leader, Kevin Dadey, is featured in a Modern Healthcare article: How M&A Scrutiny in Washington Could Affect Healthcare Deals. The article explores the evolving landscape of healthcare mergers & acquisitions and the role of regulatory oversight in shaping these transactions.

Triggered by the cyberattack on Change Healthcare in February, which was acquired by UnitedHealth Group in 2022, Congressional lawmakers have become vocal about the need to examine healthcare consolidation deals more closely.

The scrutiny from Washington is not expected to hinder dealmaking, which has slowed down instead due to the interest rate environment, geopolitical risk, and the upcoming presidential election. Dadey stated, “I could see [healthcare companies] being hesitant, but if it’s the right market opportunity, they’re still going to do it.”.

Rather, companies are expected to dedicate more time and resources to the transaction process to prevent raising red flags. It will likely impact the due diligence process as companies seek to better understand potential vulnerabilities. Being mindful of how much private patient data they gain and how many technology systems they might need post-deal will be examined more closely than ever before. An investment in cybersecurity could actually spur deal activity as companies look to improve their capabilities through transactions.
