Providing Acquisition Integration Support for Home Health and Hospice Provider
A regional provider of home health, rehabilitation, and hospice was looking to understand and measure the anticipated operational and reimbursement synergies in the lead up to a potential acquisition and integration. The future integrated organization was positioned to provide home health, clinical care (physical therapy, skilled nursing, occupational therapy), and hospice care, and accept payment from patients and third-party reimbursements, such as Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and commercial insurance plans.
The client sought a repeatable, reusable synergy model that would help it to prioritize its integration activities and provide an accurate picture of post-acquisition EBIDTA enhancement opportunities while maintaining high ratings for patient satisfaction and evidence-based quality.
With the information from our data analysis and synergy model in hand, the company moved forward with the acquisition with increased confidence in its investment and operational thesis.
How We Helped
Riveron identified and developed a model to quantify synergies across the future-state, integrated business to track and measure synergy realization. This model included projected financial and EBIDTA impact, implementation time, and measurability. Riveron also provided recommendations for operational improvements with respect to people, processes, controls, and technology that would enhance cash, cost, and revenue on top of identified synergy opportunities.
With the information from our data analysis and synergy model in hand, the company moved forward with the acquisition with increased confidence in its investment and operational thesis.
