The Rise Of Healthcare Mergers & Acquisitions


 

The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted whole ventures in 2020, yet perhaps none to such an extent as healthcare. The  global competition to create, test, manufacture and distribute a Covid-19 vaccine in record time and the battle to save patients all through the world.

  1. Telemedicine is making its own path

 

As non-Covid patients avoid hospital care during the pandemic, telemedicine and different forms of digital healthcare have become favored M&A targets.
