Examining Private Equity in Health Care

A Conversation with Atul Gupta, PhD, Sabrina T. Howell, PhD, Ryan McDevitt, PhD, and Brian Powers, MD, MBA, moderated by Rachel M. Werner, MD, PhD

12:00p.m. – 1:00p.m. ET March 3, 2023 Virtual Event

Private equity firms have invested in the health care companies at astonishing rates. While a variety of forces draw these investors in, questions arise about their role: Who is being targeted and why? What is the impact on patients? And what do these changes mean for costs and quality of care? Join LDI to learn more about trends in private equity transactions in health care, while examining the impact on health equity, health outcomes, and health care delivery, and whether there should be policy responses to these investments.
