Max Reiboldt, CPA - Coker Group

Reiboldt and team presents those myriad possibilities in an organized and easy-to-digest format that explores the “what” and “how-to” applications of each option, and by providing an historical review of various physician affiliation transactions over the past 20 years, including:

  • Physician to physician.
  • Private group to private group.
  • Private group to hospital-health systems.
  • Private group to private equity/outside investors, and more.

Using history as a basis, Reiboldt and his team of experts explain how the past has shaped the current state of affiliation models and associated transactions. As a user-friendly resource for those weighing their affiliation options, Reiboldt also explains professional services agreements, joint equity opportunities, private equity transactions, clinical co-management alignment, clinically integrated networks and value-based reimbursement structures, legal and regulatory compliance considerations, capital procurement options, the role of IT, and the mechanics of putting together and closing the deal.

As president and CEO of Coker Group, Max Reiboldt, CPA, and his capable team have first-hand experience in the ongoing changes of healthcare providers, which uniquely equips them to handle strategic, tactical, financial and management issues that health systems and physicians face in today’s evolving marketplace.
