Health IT, RCM sectors see $3.3B in mergers, acquisitions in year's first half

Greenberg Advisors, an investment bank specializing in mergers and acquisitions for revenue cycle management and health IT firms, is set to release its update analyzing M&A in the RCM and health IT sectors for the first half of 2018. 

The M&A update will be available in late September.

Three data highlights:

1. The analysis found more than $3.3 billion in deal value in health IT and RCM sectors for the first half of 2018.

2. Sixty-five percent of sellers in health IT and RCM sectors in the first half of 2018 offered a technology solution, while 35 percent only offered services.

3. Founder-owned companies made up the majority of sellers in health IT and RCM sectors in the first half of 2018.

Brian Greenberg, CEO of Greenberg Advisors, said: "The pervasive need for greater innovation within healthcare is generating much of the activity. Whether from the standpoint of improving communications between providers and payers, better informing patients pre- and post-encounter, or making vast changes to the way the system works, investors and owners recognize this need and are capitalizing on it."
