CRA experts provide consultation and expert testimony analyzing the competitive effects of horizontal and vertical mergers and joint ventures across the healthcare sector. For this work, our experts account for the unique characteristics of the healthcare industry that shape competitors’ behaviors and incentives, utilize key healthcare data, and rely on sound economic theory to define product and geographic markets, assess the competitive constraints of entry and expansion, consider the impact of insurance and regulatory oversight on market dynamics, and quantify the cost reductions and quality enhancements that are only achievable through the proposed merger or joint venture.
