Forget about the unicorns—what about the zombies?

2015 has been the “Year of the Unicorn”, but let's not forget that the majority of startups still fail. We looked at every venture-backed digital health company since 2011, and found that 11% are either dead or "zombies" (i.e., they haven't raised a round in 3+ years). Most likely to die? A disproportionate number of these zombie companies are in the care coordination, EHR, or clinical workflow space. Find out more about the state of digital health funding in 2015 in our fifth annual Year End Funding Report.
