Major emerging healthcare trends you cannot miss in 2022
The healthcare industry, rattled by the onset of the Pandemic in 2019, had a rocking year in 2021. Standups in digital health raised $29.1 billion in over 729 deals (as per Rock Health, venture fund providers) with Ro ($500 million), Mindbody ($500 million), Commure ($500 million) and Noom ($540 million) leading the funding growth charts. In 2022, pioneers in health technology - Abbott, Omron, P&G, Humana and their likes are taking greater strides to establish their supremacy in insights-driven digital health. Triggered by new Covid-19 variants, digital health companies are escalating their investments in medical technology and biopharma to modernize legacy systems and keep up with the times. Investments in prescription digital therapeutics and digital products that supported disease treatment are expected to remain at an all-time high this year.
All this is happening in the backdrop of technology-backed healthcare consultancy guiding the back offices of agile healthcare institutions and their medics. The momentum gained in 2021 is likely to gain further mileage in 2022.
