Fei Ren, Li Han


Abstract: In recent years, the Chinese government has introduced a series of policies to promote the health care reform and further promote the hospital industry towards marketization, which makes the hospital M & A continue to heat up. In order to effectively integrate the existing resources, expand the operation scale, strengthen the comprehensive strength, improve the hospital's core competitiveness, make the M & A behavior more scientific to promote the deepening of the medical system reform, this paper studies the risk evaluation and management of M & A based on the theory of hospital M & A. The risks in the current M & A include financial risk, strategic risk, transaction risk, integration risk, etc. These risks will restrict the future development of hospitals, and even lead to the failure of mergers and acquisitions and huge economic losses. Therefore, correct risk assessment and management is the key to the success of M & A. By applying the qualitative identification method, the quantitative analysis method and the expert investigation method as well as making corresponding management adjustment and countermeasures, the risk probability can be reduced and the success rate of M & A can be improved so as to realize the strategic goal. In the hospital M & A, the use of risk assessment and management can prevent and evade risks, which enables the industry chain to extend, helps the development of the industry and provides better medical and health services for the people.
