akiro to Facilitate Physician Practice M&A Transactions

New Consulting Practice Joins Growing GPMF Holdings Healthcare Ecosystem

HOLYOKE, MA July 25, 2019: Citing OIG and DOJ fines and penalties levied against health care providers for violations of Stark, Anti-Kickback and False Claims Act violations arising from physician acquisitions, GPMF Holdings, a growing healthcare services organization has announced the formation of akiro.  The company will facilitate complex transactions between medical practices, hospitals, large healthcare groups, and private equity firms, and provide post-closing compliance on a routine basis.

“Failure to consider regulatory requirements, to understand financial implications, or to plan for technology changes can doom a deal before it is consummated,” commented GPMF Chief Executive Officer Michael Feld. “akiro’s leadership team is made up of legal, accounting, and information technology executives who’ve specialized for years in the healthcare industry, with the ability to provide unique insights into financial due diligence and fair market value determination, IT integration, compliance review, CPT auditing and ongoing compliance support.”

akiro is led by Dave Audibert, CPA, CVA, MBA, and GPMF’s Corporate Counsel Brad Mondschein. Audibert brings decades of deal experience in the healthcare space for both buy side and sell side transactions, and Mondschein contributes decades of transactional, regulatory and compliance engagements. “GPMF Holdings has created a healthcare ecosystem dedicated to developing and implementing the processes and technologies that make the delivery of healthcare better for patients and providers alike,” says Audibert and Mondschein.  “As medical practice consolidation continues across the country, we think akiro has an important role to play in assuring that these transactions take place in a fair, compliant, and economically beneficial way for all concerned.”
