StartUp Health Insights™: Read the 2019 Midyear Report on Health Innovation

The numbers are in. After two quarters, health innovation funding is pacing to beat what was an exceptional 2018. A few insights in our redesigned report have us calling 2019 the ‘Year of the Patient.’ For example, Women’s Health and Access to Care health moonshots show the highest increase in funding from 2018 to 2019, a testament to investors’ desire to back entrepreneurs improving care for historically underserved patient populations. Also, personalized health is at the top of the list for most-funded health functions in Q2 2019, with patient empowerment a close second.

Of course, the patient has always been the soul of the healthcare revolution. Now we’re seeing serious money flow in this direction, toward the transformation of care systems to become truly patient first. Download the midyear 2019 StartUp Health Insights™ Report for the full story.
