Networking Breakfast:James J. Agnew, Vice President Corporate Development & Acquisitions, Tufts Health Plan & Tufts Health Ventures


Connect with ACG Boston and New England’s deal professionals at our bi-monthly Networking Breakfast, where the region’s middle-market M&A community comes together to network and hear high caliber industry experts share their outlook, opinions, successes and failures in M&A.

January’s breakfast will feature James J. Agnew, Vice President Corporate Development & Acquisitions, Tufts Health Plan and Tufts Health Ventures, who will present on Tufts Health Plan: Transforming Beyond The Image of Health Payer to a New Healthcare Enterprise. Given the challenges presented by US Healthcare Reform, increasing competition from non-traditional entities and the rush to provider consolidation; Tufts Health Plan is transforming itself from a traditional payer centric organization into a new health enterprise.

James’ presentation will describe the journey Tufts Health Plan is undertaking to become more industry nimble in addressing issues such as:

  • Strategic partnership w/ non-traditional business partners
  • Adopting new strategies in managing risk-based contracting
  • Recent acquisition activity and their direction for 2017
  • Their approach to sourcing and executing on acquisitions and strategic investments
  • How they work in partnership w/ VC and PE firms locally and nationally
  • Role of primary care as a driver of economic and clinical transformation
  • Partnerships and JVs between health plans and hospital systems
  • Clinical and economic analytics needed to drive transformation
  • Where can health systems find undiscovered value w/ VC and PE firms?
