Consolidation: Building an "Unbreachable Moat"

The recent flurry of carrier mergers highlights the speed with which the market landscape can change.  Regardless of specific business segments within the healthcare industry, every CEO is faced with having to tease out the implications of these substantive changesand focus both resources and mindshare on how to compete and win in local markets.

Consolidation has added to market complexity, but in some respects, these mergers produce real opportunities, particularly during the evaluation and transitional phase of such large and complicated mergers.
