Healthcare market proves strong as investors embrace new technological advancements

DLA Piper

On the heels of a record-breaking year for private equity fundraising, the healthcare industry is expected to remain strong as cutting-edge technology opens new doors for investors.

That was a key takeaway from a panel moderated by Joshua Kaye, chair of DLA Piper’s US Healthcare Sector, on the sidelines of the 2020 JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco. The fourth annual panel discussion, “Healthcare M&A exits: who’s buying, what are they buying and why?” also discussed trends they are seeing in new technologies entering the healthcare sector, concerns around patient data privacy and the steady rise of incubators and accelerators.

The highlights of the discussion feature Robert G. Shepler, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner, Telegraph Hill Partners and Amy Stevens, Executive Vice President of Provider Solutions, AVIA.
