Kevin J. Ryan, Member of the Firm in the Health Care & Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Chicago office, was quoted in Health Care M&A, in “Telehealth Deals Pick Up in 2019,” by Lisa Phillips.

Following is an excerpt:

Digital health is hot, if deal volume is any measure (and we think it is). By mid-November, some 195 transactions are already on the books. That total is sure to surpass the 204 deals announced in all of 2018, which set a new record. …

Expect more of these deals in 2020, according to Kevin Ryan, a member of Epstein Becker Green. “We see continued activity in telemedicine into 2020. There’re a lot of start-ups in the market and we’re going to see some consolidation,” he told us in a recent interview. …

Even within the telepsych niche, there are niches. “On the behavioral health side there are telehealth companies focused on treating depression, eating disorders, substance abuse,” said Epstein Becker’s Ryan.
