How can you maximize value of the physician practice?

A physician practice has many moving pieces that ensure it operates efficiently and provides the best possible care. In preparation, a physician practice can focus on critical elements that are key areas of focus for valuation. These include financial performance, opportunities for growth and synergies and differentiation in the market.













1. Strong financial performance is demonstrated by:

  • Consistently growing top-line performance year over year
  • Implementing fundamental operational practices that are effective and efficient
  • Demonstrating strong underlying profitability through the ability to consistently distribute excess profits to shareholders.

2. Opportunities for growth and synergy are demonstrated by:

  • Possibility of adding additional ancillary service lines
  • Showing operational similarities between your practice and potential investment partner
  • Using similar technologies and software as those used by potential investment partners, or the ability to quickly adopt these tools.













3. Differentiation in the market is demonstrated by:

  • Specialized focus/expertise that sets the practice apart from competitors
  • Scarcity value which occurs when there’s a high demand but a lack of service providers in the region
  • Strong patient base and referral network.
