The funding doesn’t lie: half-way through 2012 and digital health is already in high gear. We’ve seen record investments: 73% more funding in the space than midyear 2011.  Read our 2012 Midyear Digital Health Funding Report here.

Other key findings from our report:
– 68 digital health companies have raised over $2M

– Common themes: physician tools, sensors, home health, and data
– Bay Area dominates funding, with 28% of overall funding

Read reflections on our Midyear Digital Health Funding Report in TechCrunch and MedCity News.

Digital health isn’t just a fad – and, from this week’s news, we know we’re not the only ones who think so.
