Here at Reaction we have some pretty cool opinions, but generally, we are more interested in what others have to say. Hence, when we heard there was going to be a merger between the powerhouse McKesson, and Change Healthcare, we tapped into our Research Cloud to see what providers had to say.
Over about two-three weeks we gathered responses from 146 individuals. We got answers to questions like, “How will the merger impact your likelihood of working with these companies in the future?” “Were you aware the merger was taking place?” and qualitative responses on why they feel the way they do. For example, one respondent said, “McKesson has become a niche player. I see the merger as a play for survival, but nothing that is going to have a serious impact on the industry.”
From there we also broke down responses based on whether or not they were a customer of either company. You may be slightly surprised to find out that 47% of McKesson customers, and 17% of Change Healthcare customers, had no idea the merger was taking place.
