Growth Trend for Digital Health Startups

July 14th, 2014 by Rebecca Todd

According to a new Rock Health report, more than $2.2 billion has been invested in digital health startup companies since the start of 2014. This is a huge increase from the $1.97 billion investment for all of 2013. At the same time, crowdfunding is less popular in this industry area than last year.

The report indicates that the national leaders in digital health are California, New York, Massachusetts, and Florida.

“Digital health” refers to technologies used to collect and share health care information, from digital medical devices to health care management software.
