Trending Towards a Record-Breaking Year in Digital Health Investments
With $9.4B invested in digital health companies through the third quarter of 2020, this year will be one for the record books, in more ways than one. Digital health was thrust into the spotlight and proven to be the saving grace for many during the pandemic’s ups and downs. True digital health pioneers have known the benefits for years, but with an unintended and unfortunate proof of concept with COVID-19, everyone’s eyes have been opened.
