New study shows worst outcomes, patient harm and higher costs after profit-driven PE firms take over health care institutions
Hey, that was you? I read the commentary this morning (traveling from Stat, which wrote up the study) but didn't notice the byline! A very useful survey of the literature review.
"Private equity awareness" is really popping up everywhere in healthcaresville. Two more recent good reads: 1. Private Equity and the Corporatization of Health Care (legal and regulatory countermeasures) https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4373557 2. Monetizing Medicine: Private Equity and Competition in Physician Practice Markets (effect of PE when it reaches 30% in a given practice/given market)
Wondering if you would reach out to me as to what you are hearing or any research regarding mental health and private equity. If you feel so compelled my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am an industrial organizational psychologist and a licensed social worker who is tracking the move of private equity into mental health.
