In the News
Renovus Capital Partners said Jan. 15 that it acquired a controlling stake in Continuing Education Alliance LLC and Practicing Clinicians Exchange. Financial terms weren’t announced. Continuing Education is the corporate owner of Practicing Clinicians, of Stamford, Connecticut, which provides education for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Berkery Noyes Investment Banking provided financial advice to PCE.
HealthCareMandA.com recently hosted a webinar that focused on telehealth. Tom O’Connor, Managing Director at Berkery Noyes, was invited to speak as an expert panelist. The webinar covered the following topics: who’s building networks; who’s buying and who’s selling; what is affecting current valuations; emerging trends and new players entering the market; and expert panelists’ views on the headwinds and tailwinds at play in this market.
Investment firms Spectrum Equity and Cressey & Co will acquire a significant stake in Verisys Corporation, a U.S. provider of data and software that help healthcare providers with regulatory compliance, the company said on Tuesday.
Career Step LLC, backed by private equity firm Revelstoke Capital Partners, has acquired Panacea Healthcare Solution, a technology-enabled consultant for the healthcare industry. The deal includes the target’s revenue capture, and coding and documentation businesses, which combine data analytics with data collected by Panacea’s consultants.
From a trending perspective, Thomas O’Connor, managing director of Berkery Noyes, says workflow tools that assist in medical practices or the performance of a clinical trial, or that smooth the operations of healthcare entities are areas of interest.
“Scale will help them,” O’Connor told HealthPayerIntelligence.com in a prior interview. “Consumers are facing an onslaught of choices much like the 401K plans in the past where they had to take more control over their insurance. Instead of an employer model, it’s moving more towards a consumerization model where they will have more input into their decisions and will pay for it themselves.”
We chose Tom O'Connor and Berkery because of Tom's impeccable reputation and the quality of his team. They zealously represented and stayed with us through every up and down during the deal process. The Berkery team was professional and on top of each step and detail. If something needed to get done, it got done quickly, efficiently and with exacting precision. They achieved a fantastic result on behalf of the Verisys founders and we couldn't have been more pleased. Deals are tough and Tom O'Connor and the Berkery team were tougher. As a result of tremendous effort they got the deal done and the outcome was stellar.
John Benson Co-Founder and CEO Verisys
I was delighted with the level of professional commitment of the Berkery Noyes team, both in terms of their knowledge of the market and focus on the details of our business, as well as their integrity throughout the process. In other words, their commitment was not just to getting the deal done but making sure that the right deal for all parties was the deal that got done. Finally, from the seller’s point of view, we were always grateful for their leadership.
John O’Shaughnessy Co-Founder Verisys
