This blog post examines the different components of the health technology ecosystem. We will illustrate what the categories of innovation are and which categories have the most companies. We will also compare the categories in terms of their funding and maturity.
Let’s start off by looking at the Sector Map. We have classified 2,334 health technology startups into 22 categories. They have raised $88B from 3,843 investors. The Sector Map highlights the number of companies in each category. It also shows a random sampling of companies in each category.
We see that Digital Medical Devices is the largest category with 324 companies. These companies build IT-enabled medical and diagnostic devices for doctors. These devices include detection equipment, monitoring equipment, and surgical tools. Some example companies include Signostics, MediBeacon, Stimwave, and AliveCor.
Let’s now look at our Innovation Quadrant to find out the funding and maturity of these categories in relation to one another.
Our Innovation Quadrant divides the health technology categories into four different quadrants.
We see that the Pioneers quadrant has the most number of health technology categories at 13, accounting for 59% of all health technology categories. The EHR/EMR category has the highest average age, and the Genomics category has the highest average funding. On the other hand, the Fitness Apps and the Gamification categories are low on both average funding and age.
