(from FierceHealthcare)

Last year was an active one for physician practice mergers and acquisitions—a trend that one expert says will continue in 2018. Among the drivers: constant regulatory changes and pressure to invest in healthcare technology.

“I don’t see any reason the trend is going to slow down,” says Jeff B. Swearingen, a managing director of Edgemont Capital Partners, a healthcare-focused investment bank in New York.

Last year, was a tremendously active one for mergers and acquisitions in the physician services industry, particularly for office-based practices, Swearingen said in an interview with FierceHealthcare, in which he looked back at 2017 and provided an outlook for 2018.
