2019 Q1 StartUp Health Insights

Introducing StartUp Health’s New Health Innovation Report

We’ve been tracking digital health funding data and investor numbers since 2010. But the market has changed. What was once defined as “digital health” is converging across all health sectors – health IT, biotech, med-tech, pharma, health services, consumer, and so on. In other words: digital health = health. The 2019 Q1 StartUp Health Insights™ reflects this critical evolution and digs deeper into the Health Moonshots that are transforming the world. (You may also notice we’ve given the report a full design reboot; who said data couldn’t be beautiful?)
