Abstract


This article presents a framework for business entities to partner with health h diagnostic businesses (HDB). Authors expect that in post COVID-19 scenario, diagnostics operations would become integral to day to day business operations similar to physical security or janitorial services. HDB partnership would become a pressing need for any business that involves intense physical interaction. The authors identify a set of factors that should be considered to decide the type of partnership. The options proposed are acquisition, equity-based or nonequity- based partnership and diagnostics from an accredited entity. Further, a set of steps for each of these options are proposed.
