BVR Publishes Guide to Physician Practice Valuation During Turbulent Time in Healthcare Industry

PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A much needed resource during a turbulent time in the healthcare industry, BVR’s newly-published Guide to Physician Practice Valuation provides expert guidance on the appraisal of physician practices.

With issues such as compensation, non-competes, the Stark law and anti-kickback statutes all contributing to an already complex business, healthcare reform is adding substantial turbulence to the physician practice market. “Because of Healthcare reform there is a substantial amount of uncertainty in the physician community about where reimbursement is going to go,” said Dietrich, editor and contributing author of the guide. “As a result of that, there has been a significant increase in the number of hospital physician transactions in the last 18 to 24 months and it looks like it will continue for the near future.”

Dietrich’s expertise in the healthcare valuation area is well known, and he is a panelist in BVR’s upcoming webinar on Healthcare Reform and its Impact on Valuation on June 10th.

BVR’s Guide to Physician Practice Valuation is an important new resource, providing helpful guidance on the complex issues facing appraisers, medical financial officers and physicians alike.
