Understanding EMR for medical practice valuations

July 23, 2019

The sale and merger of medical practices into larger medical groups or hospital networks is an ongoing trend that began almost a decade ago. A key component of these transactions has been the valuation of the target medical practice.

The purchase price is often calculated through a combination of the quality of earnings, operational efficiency and a regulatory compliance risk assessment.
