Machine intelligence and big data analyst firm CB Insights has put together a list of what it considers to be today’s 150 “most promising” private digital health startups.
The full cohort spans a wide range of healthcare focus areas, business models, home countries and funding stages, and is accompanied by a report highlighting some of the key trends and characteristics shared by the digital health startups.
“From pharmaceuticals to patient care, technology is rapidly changing healthcare, and The Digital Health 150 showcases the 150 best startups spearheading innovation and change in the sector,” CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal said in a statement. “It’s a privilege to use CB Insights’ data to identify and shine a light on these companies, and we look forward to tracking their success in 2019 and beyond.”
According to the report, CB Insights’ team of researchers and analysts landed on these 150 digital health companies (which it defines as those within healthcare using technology or software as their key differentiator) from after reviewing a total pool of more than 5,000. Those included were gauged on various factors and metrics “including patent activity, investor profile, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength and tech novelty,” according to the report.
