Match Point is excited to announce the results of its second consecutive Digital Health Investment Survey that was conducted during the 8th Annual Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit in Boston in October. The Summit was attended by 320+ leading investors from both the East and West coast, and healthcare entrepreneurs representing four countries and 26 states. Brad Burkett conducted the live polling from the stage of the event, with results being displayed as they were tallied.
Interesting insights: Patient Engagement and Digital Therapies are the most interesting investment areas this year; Health Plans and At-Risk Providers are the favored customers AND in a surprise–the Deal of the Year to Watch is CVS/AETNA rather than Amazon/JPMorgan/Berkshire!
