In Law360, health care partners Tim McCrystal (Boston) and Deborah Gersh (Chicago) discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic could impact the health care industry, including hospital M&A.

Tim and Deborah explain that health care facilities might consider more vertical integration in addition to horizontal integration in which hospitals with strong resources acquire different types of providers to offer primary care and other outpatient services.

They note that telehealth services could become common in primary care, since it has proved popular and kept patients from crowding into doctors' offices where coronavirus infections can easily spread.
