My colleague Kathie Wilson and I are working on an important new paper dealing with the interplay of reasonable compensation and intangible and goodwill value where a medical practice has revenue and profit from the Technical Component of Ancillaries. There are a myriad of reasons why this is important, including differentiating personal and enterprise goodwill in marital dissolution, determining reasonable compensation from MGMA data, and quantifying reasonable compensation when based upon work RVUs. We plan to include a checklist of items to consider as well as common examples including neurology and cardiology practices, the latter being of considerable import in the current wave of physician practice acquisitions.

I am also developing an equally important paper with another colleague on difficulties in, and solutions to, forecasting cashflow and assessing risk (discount rate) in healthcare industry valuation. More on this in a later post.
