"It's not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change."
--Charles Darwin

According to Levin and Associates, mergers and acquisitions in the healthcare industry totaled over $227 billion, an 11 percent increase over 2010 and the fourth-largest year of the past decade. Even more interesting, is that the value of healthcare services deals increased 43 percent while technology decreased 2 percent. Hospital systems are moving into new communities, integrated health systems are acquiring additional delivery system assets, managed care networks are growing, and specialty care service businesses are expanding their footprint -- to be well-positioned for survival in a post-reform world.

This is the type of data we shared with TripleTree's Health Executive Roundtable -- the investment bank's "think tank" comprising a diverse group of health industry executives with backgrounds ranging from banking, medical device, education and life sciences; to food services, technology, human capital management, and compliance.

We asked each Roundtable member: "What are the key trends that will emerge from this consolidation?"

Their independent and unique perspectives are published in:
Viewpoint: A Kaleidoscope of Insights Regarding Growth Opportunities amid Consolidation in the Healthcare Industry.
