Dedicated expertise to meet new challenges.

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, healthcare providers and payers find both opportunities and risks as they confront the challenges of new payment and care delivery models. At the same time, healthcare entities face continued financial challenges related to declining revenues, rising costs, and limited access to capital. BRG Healthcare Financial Advisory experts offer dedicated expertise to help clients meet these challenges, develop solutions, and position their organizations for sustainable growth in a reformed world.

Our experts work hand in hand with client management teams to build consensus and develop specialized and innovative solutions to meet our clients’ financial needs and challenges. Our healthcare financial advisory consulting engagements constantly change and evolve, but past projects have included developing detailed feasibility studies for new hospitals and related certificate-of-need (CON) assistance, identifying partners and analyzing the benefits and risks of mergers, performing merger due diligence and synergy analysis, making fair market value determinations, performing debt-capacity studies, acting as trustee/monitor/conservator for the wind-down of insurance operations, and acting as a monitor for financially troubled health plans.

A core strength of the BRG Healthcare practice is our ability to provide information-driven, objective, and innovative solutions by harnessing and unlocking the vast amount of electronic information generated in the healthcare system, such as billing and reimbursement data, medical records, fee schedules, contracting data, and financial and accounting records. We use this information to develop sophisticated, creative, and efficient solutions to our clients’ most pressing financial issues.
