The OPEN MINDS Mergers, Acquisitions, & Affiliations Summit: Best Practices For Non-Profit Health & Human Service Organizations

August 15, 2019 | 7:30am – 3:30pm

Hilton Long Beach Hotel | Long Beach, California

No issue is more top-of-mind for executives of health and human service organizations than figuring out the strategic implications of the unstoppable flow of mergers and acquisitions announcements. Every day there is a new headline announcing a new partnership, leaving executives to consider their market position and ask new strategic questions: Do any of these affiliations create a “super competitor” that will be more attractive to our current consumers? Do any take away our current contracts with payers or health plans? Do any provide services “for less,” depressing our market rates and reducing our bottom line?

These are relatively simple questions, but the answers are quite nuanced—and, they vary by market, service, consumer type, payer, and geography. The OPEN MINDS Mergers, Acquisitions, & Affiliations Summit is designed provide non-profit provider organizations the tools they need to build a successful partnership strategy and overcome the challenges of making mergers and acquisitions work. This year, our focus is on understanding how different types of collaborations can provide different benefits and challenges for organizations—and helping executives to determine which opportunity is the best fit for their organization.

During this one-day experiential summit we will hear case study presentations from non-profit provider organizations who have participated in a merger, acquisition, or affiliation in different formats. From mergers driven by the desire to integrate with primary care, to a sole member affiliation model, to the formation of an administrative services organization to create affiliations—each of these case study presentations will review the ups and downs of the process and offer strategic advice for organizations exploring the same path. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear directly from the organizations leading the way in non-profit partnerships, network with non-profit organizations looking for collaboration opportunities, and learn best practices in the merger, acquisition, or affiliation process.
