An aging population, physician shortages, and industry fragmentation are making cardiology the “new darling” of private equity investment. The question is – can private equity coexist with the quadruple aim? On MedAxiom HeartTalk, host Melanie Lawson talks with Ann Honeycutt, executive director of Virginia Cardiovascular Specialists, Larry Sobal, CEO of Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin, Dinesh Pubbi, MD, a founding member of First Coast Heart and Vascular Center, Rick Snyder, MD, FACC, an interventional cardiologist at HeartPlace Dallas, and Joe Sasson, executive vice president of Ventures at MedAxiom. They discuss the influx of private equity in cardiovascular healthcare and how one size does not fit all.
