Mergers and Acquisitions

Virtual Data Rooms for COVID-19 Healthcare M&A

With the entire world moving online, bad actors have become more a threat than ever, especially when it comes to the difficulty involved in a merger or acquisition, which has been occurring at record rates in the healthcare industry as companies race to develop treatments, vaccines, and scientific breakthroughs that can heal the world.

This sharp increase in healthcare M&A events has overwhelmed the data room industry, but not Vault Rooms, because our excellent staff was prepared. Vault Rooms is your choice for a healthcare industry merger, acquisition, or secure research data collection space.

THE VACCINE RACE / OPERATION WARP SPEED — Digital Data Room Providers

With investment groups, banks, and entire countries joining the race to develop an effective and safe COVID vaccine, entities have needed to combine forces, or smaller groups with big ideas have been taken over by groups with the resources to bring them to fruition. 

In an age of megamergers, collecting and producing the needed data can present a logistics and security challenge all at once. If you don’t provide every piece of needed information over the required channels, it may disqualify your merger. If you let something leak, it could damage the valuation of your acquisition. The list goes on, which is why you need a digital data room with high level encryption and a supportive staff behind it, which Vault Rooms leads the industry in providing. 

MERGERS/ACQUISITIONS IN DIGITAL HEALTHCARE — Secure Data Rooms 

Telemedicine is booming, but sharing important documents over traditional teleconferencing tools may be insecure or expensive for the customer. Instead, take away the time, energy, and stress by opening your staff to a supported Digital Vault, which can give them more time for patient care by removing time wasted with paperwork. 

“We didn’t have a lot of time to train up employees here… to get them ready. So we had a lot of folks that just logged in for the first time and started using the platform!” – Customer K.S.

Private investment firms are showing more interest in healthcare targets that are not management-driven, such as telehealth, healthcare IT and home-based health care. The relaxation of regulations in telehealth has opened the sector to brand new opportunities across state lines as well.  

MAINTAINING HOSPITAL INCOME / COMPLIANCE — Data Room Organizers

Only serving a majority of coronavirus patients, hospitals have found their profits grossly affected by a lack of elective procedures and use of other wings of the facilities. This impact means M&A’s may be happening at struggling companies all the same in order to conserve resources and increase scale.

At the same time, you want to make sure that your entity is complying with industry standards and government regulations, both of which Vault Rooms can provide. And both of which will require some form of digital data room. Take a secure course of action and trust your HIPAA protected data with us, as not all VDR providers have this designation. There are significant fines that can be imposed on healthcare companies that violate HIPAA compliance, even if done unintentionally. 

Even more so, sharing patient information can be a challenge in an increasingly remote space, which is why you must choose a VDR that is 21 CFR Part 11 validated, like Vault Rooms
