Ezra Simons quoted in Behavioral Health Business on Talkspace acquisition
Physician Growth Partners Managing Partner and co-founder Ezra Simons was recently quoted in Behavioral Health Business in a November 28th story detailing the potential acquisition of Talkspace by telehealth giant Amwell. Ezra commented on the impact of the transaction:
“This deal could signal an increasing trend in the industry towards an all-in-one solution in behavioral health that encompasses all touch points in the patient lifecycle. Additionally, it could indicate a trend of tech/telehealth platforms growing their user base through acquisition of a large patient/provider network. I think we are going to continue to see vertical integration looping behavioral into broader care networks.”
