In the News
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.”
Veronis Suhler Stevenson has made an undisclosed investment in Connexion Point LLC. Berkery Noyes acted as financial adviser to Connexion Point on the transaction. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah is a provider of technology-enabled healthcare services.
Tom O’Connor, a managing director at Berkery Noyes, spoke recently with HCI Editor-in-Chief Mark Hagland regarding the report’s findings and the broader landscape around merger-and-acquisition activity now in healthcare and healthcare IT.
“Very proud to be involved with Jeff Hennessy and the entire HMP Communications Holdings, LLC team. Thanks to Tom O'Connor and the Berkery, Noyes & Co., LLC firm for helping us out on this one.”
Scott Feldman Managing Director Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE)
