    Interesting infographic. Wondering how can we say that market and regulatory changes will result in strong M&A. It may work in other direction; may be investor can opt for wait & watch strategy. What do you think?

      Hi Abhinav,

      Thanks for your comment. It’s true some may choose a “wait & watch” strategy, but the majority businesses are preparing for change, whether they want to or not. Healthcare businesses must comply with new regulations which are reshaping the industry. This could mean scaling up through acquisitions or divesting of non-core businesses, or even completely exiting the healthcare industry. Increased M&A activity has already occurred with hospital consolidation, which will create ripple effect and drive deals in other healthcare sectors.
