Joining CVAUSA

Our process is very simple and structured, from the initial discussions all the way to closing a transaction. We have a highly experienced development team led by Tom Schwallie, a veteran healthcare development and operations expert.

No-Obligation Conversation

First, you'll schedule a call with us. At that time, we will explain more about ourselves and the benefits of joining CVAUSA. We'll also ask you some questions about your practice, goals, and vision for the future. Likewise, we'll give you plenty of time to ask questions and get answers from our team. If we seem like a good fit for partnership, the next step is a formal evaluation.

Formal Evaluation

We'll begin with a non-disclosure agreement before sharing data. During analysis, we identify opportunities for revenue growth along several vectors including programmatic and ASC/OBL development, advanced tomographic imaging, geographic expansion, reimbursement improvements, innovative arrangements with risk-bearing organizations, new care model elements, and more.

Executing a Letter of Intent

If, after the formal evaluation, both parties agree that a partnership would be mutually beneficial, CVAUSA will provide a Letter of Intent (LOI), which will clearly outline our offer. If the offer meets your expectations, you will sign and return the LOI, at which point, the due diligence process will begin. A proper and thorough due diligence process typically takes between 60 to 90 days to complete. 

Closing and Integration

Following due diligence, definitive agreements are drafted and then executed. CVAUSA’s operations team will work hand-in-hand with your leadership to complete all closing and post-closing integration activities. Remember, clinical and operational autonomy is maintained at the group level. CVAUSA does not manage your practice. Our team is here to support and accelerate your growth.
