New business venture strategy

The assistance needed below is in short form/bullet points.

Hello, I am hoping I can leverage an Expert's business acumen. As part of a reading assignment I am to consider a healthcare company (Company A) that is interested in working with an out of state home care company. Company A is seeking this new venture, where they would offer the home care service in their state as well -working with the other company.

Since company A is already in health care (multiple operational hospitals - Acute care and seniors care) just not home care (the other companies business). I need to evaluate what type of structure would best work for this venture.

The attachment explains further.

Can an Expert help me brainstorm and fill out the boxes and questions?

I need to explain ideally with literature review (Harvard, or case studies) how the choice in structure would improve efficiencies in operation.
