We connect with David Garcia again to discuss the latest in healthcare and antitrust developments. Much has changed since his last visit three years ago and he walks us through some of those trends. He highlights how M&A transactions continue to rise and predicts what may finally put a halt on them. David discusses the race for innovation and how it has impacted the entire healthcare system in the states and globally. Finally, he discusses how states play a role in the regulation and the federal government’s role in the antitrust field.
