Overall, the health care industry remains attractive to investors. However, caution is definitely coming into play, as the downward trend in transaction volume indicates. In North America, aggregate mergers and acquisitions (M&A) figures were down significantly in terms of both value and volume. Given the past several quarters' shift down in activity, it is likely more due to cyclical factors such as supply and uncertainty, with select niches perceived as safer still drawing the most attention.

Technology systems had a noticeable uptick in volume. Upgrading of infrastructure and improving security is contributing to significant amounts of spend within the industry.
