Healthcare Operating Universe
NEPC is driving change in the healthcare industry by working with senior-level financial executives at hospitals nationwide to establish a universe of financial intelligence unlike any other at their disposal.
Earlier this year, NEPC gathered financial data from healthcare providers that enabled the firm to develop a sample set of how healthcare company operating pools are invested. From the data, NEPC learned that these institutions have more cash on their balance sheets than at any point in the history of the industry. How much they have and how they’re investing it, to this point, has been mostly private, unlike their public pension counterparts.
Dave Moore, partner and head of NEPC’s healthcare practice said that these healthcare organizations need to have a better sense of what their peers (those with similar financial metrics and ratings) are doing, at least in the macro sense. While this information share shouldn’t influence an investment program, it certainly informs an investor on the risks they take relative to their peers.
Moore discusses those findings in his recent piece in Becker’s Hospital Review.
