Description

Digital health investment is booming, but it’s a complicated field to navigate. From evaluating the ever-expanding applications of technology in healthcare (e.g. AI, VR, IoT and voice-activated technologies) to regulatory pathways that remain unclear; privacy and security risks; lack of reimbursement; uncertainty around the leap from pilot to market; long sales cycles and more, how do investors assess their opportunities? Get a peek into the minds of our expert investor panel. They’ll share their views on the operating environment, favorite verticals, future winners, and processes for assessing potential value in digital health.
