Welcoming our newest partner, ZS

As 2018 nears the halfway point, we’re grateful for the support we’ve received thus far from our incredible industry partners and eagerly look ahead to the work that’s still left to be done. Tomorrow, we’ll convene 200 enterprise leaders, academics, entrepreneurs, and technologists for actionable conversations at our Enterprise Insights Forum. We know exponential improvements in healthcare are only possible when industry players come together and join forces to achieve more than can be accomplished alone. That’s why today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with ZS.

You’ve run a successful digital health pilot. Now what?

One of the biggest challenges enterprises face in adopting innovation isn’t a failed pilot—it’s a successful one. With the need to scale, the real work begins: aligning stakeholders, finding the budget for full deployment, integrating new solutions into current workflows, and shifting hearts and minds in favor of organizational change.

Podcast: How non-traditional players are shaping healthcare transformation

As one of the last industries to undergo technological transformation on an exponential scale, healthcare is ripe for change—and attracting the attention of diverse industries like never before. What opportunities do transportation, finance, food, and other companies see in healthcare? What trends are leading non-traditional companies into this balkanized industry?

How 100+ CEOs are navigating digital health’s middle innings

Over 100 digital health CEOs joined us last month at the sixth annual Digital Health CEO Summit, co-hosted with Penn Wharton Entrepreneurship, BioQuest, and Match Point Partners. The Summit provided startup CEOs with a space for candid conversations about the challenges and triumphs of building a digital health company. They discussed what it means for digital health to be maturing as a sector, the challenge of simultaneously building products and testing new business models within an evolving industry, and what it takes to make this job sustainable—and enjoyable.

Q1 2018: Funding keeps climbing as digital health startups double down on validation

On the heels of the biggest year in venture funding, the digital health space is starting off 2018 with a bang: record Q1 funding of $1.62B, three $100M+ mega-deals, and a massive exit. Compared to last year, the commotion from policy debates has largely settled and a path to regulatory clarity has emerged. On our end, we’ve launched a couple of new sections within our funding post—check out our deep investor analysis as well as an update on the sometimes elusive, always critical quest of every digital health company: validation.

The AI/ML use cases investors are betting on in healthcare

Last month, we released our whitepaper, Demystifying AI and Machine Learning in Healthcare. In this latest blog post, you’ll learn how venture funding gives us a glimpse into the AI/ML use cases taking hold now—and those areas that aren’t ripe yet. ICYMI: Our first post established a framework to understand the algorithms underpinning AI to allow stakeholders to more readily identify true breakthrough innovation.

The real-world effects of digital health: Announcing the Impact Project

After seven years, we’ve seen $23B invested into thousands of digital health companies. But we wanted to know: what has been the real-world impact of digital health? We were moved to learn just how many lives had been significantly changed by a new wave of technology. We aim to shift the digital health dialogue from one focused on the degree of investment and future expectations to one about digital health's effect on patients and healthcare outcomes. In that spirit, this ongoing project brings you stories of people living far outside Silicon Valley and the companies shifting the healthcare status quo who have made an impact on their lives.

Demystifying AI and machine learning in healthcare

AI in healthcare feels inevitable: Optimists predict that artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) will diagnose disease better and earlier, treat illness more precisely, and engage patients more efficiently than today’s healthcare system does. On top of this, AI/ML is expected to streamline business operations and restore sanity (and humanity) to the clinician experience.
