Q1 2022 Healthcare Education Update
The healthcare education sector exhibited robust consolidation activity in the first quarter of 2022. Continuing medical education (CME) and professional training, in particular, has been the most active segment in terms of M&A activity. Recent deal flow has been driven by the consolidation of tech-enabled CME services, aimed at diversifying service lines and adapting to pandemic-impacted operations.
Investors pursuing this tech-enabled thesis are extremely diverse, ranging from healthcare IT companies to broader education platforms to financial sponsors. Physitrack, for example, a physiotherapy SaaS platform, acquired CME provider PTcourses.com, citing synergies that are expected to expand the margin profile of the platform to 45%.
Provident expects healthcare education M&A momentum to accelerate throughout 2022 as a range of platforms and new investors increasingly look to capture market share in the CME space.
