Investing for Quality and Growth
Uncover Hidden Quality Gaps Before You Invest
Global health care mergers and acquisitions (M&A) exceeded $723 billion* in 2015. As active M&A investors, providers use stringent due diligence to arrive at smart investment decisions.
One factor, however, is often missing from the due diligence checklist: adherence to quality principals. High quality contributes to superior care and helps to build reputation and reduce risk. Poor quality can quickly translate into financial loss and a business burden. If you do not know the hospital’s quality status, how do you know if you are purchasing a winner or a loser?
The Business Benefits of Quality
Owners and investors are turning to Joint Commission International (JCI) for a strategic assessment of a facility’s quality status before they purchase.
For long-term investments: Owners want to buy and improve existing facilities to build a strong presence and brand in a specific region.
For short-term buys: Investors need to know what quality improvements must be made to put the facility back on the market quickly and profitably.
By working with JCI – the world’s leading accreditor for quality and safety standards – investors like you receive independent quality assessments and information to help reduce present and future risks.
No Surprises: Objective Snapshots of Quality Performance Protect Your Bottom Line
JCI consultants trained in Robust Process Improvement® techniques can quickly spot quality deficiencies and recommend corrections to keep your purchase decisions on track.
JCI experts can engage at any point in your investment decision. Matching the pace of business, our services are customized to your goals, timeline, and needs.
If you want to complete an overall assessment of your quality expectations to enhance your acquisition strategy, then JCI’s Corporate Structure Situational Analysis will be helpful. Our team works with you to define short- and long-term quality goals, optimize staff expertise, and set quality expectations for multiple acquisition targets.
If you are evaluating a specific facility and want to minimize your risks, then JCI’s Pre-acquisition Readiness Assessment will help identify quality breakdowns prior to your investment. Through interviews, an on-site visit, and documentation review, we rapidly determine a facility’s quality status and readiness for an independent JCI accreditation survey.
If you want to strengthen a hospital’s performance after acquisition, the JCI team can provide a Post-Acquisition Assessment and help develop an action plan for quality improvement.
