Startup innovation for underserved groups

Realizing the potential of digital health in the U.S. isn’t possible without acknowledging the health needs of communities historically marginalized from the healthcare system. In our latest piece, we examined data from our 2021 Digital Health Consumer Adoption Survey of 7,980 U.S. adults to understand how consumers across specific demographics groups used various digital health tools. In conversation with digital health startup and founder perspectives, we explore where digital health is meeting the needs of rural Americans, those with Medicaid insurance coverage, women of color, and LGBQA+ and transgender-identifying individuals—and where gaps still remain.
