The practical value of digital solutions to accelerate access to care and improve patient outcomes will be highlighted

NEW YORK, October 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Galen Growth, the leading digital health data-driven market intelligence company, and FINN Partners, a global integrated marketing services agency, announced a joint effort to mine data and produce the first “Global State of Digital Health Report . ” The first report, drawing information from some 200M data points and more than 12,000 digital health initiatives around the world, will be released at November’s HLTH conference in Vegas, Nevada. The second report will be available at January 2023 at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, California, as part of the Future & Health event. Additional quarterly reports are expected next year.

With this partnership, experts from FINN’s Global Digital Health Group are working side-by-side with data from Galen Growth and researchers to map the complex and often fragmented digital health landscape; emerging market trends, areas of growth and innovation, and look beyond equity funding to explore what is expected to happen in this fast-growing digital health sector. The combined team will look beyond the “chimera” of digital to map out priority and actionable opportunities for decision makers.

Often, public reports tend to cherry-pick data. The Galen/FINN Global State of Digital Health Report shows verified trends, including:

  • While 2022 digital health venture capital fell short of the skyrocketing 2021 figure, a closer look at Q1 to Q3 annual funding by stage of development reveals that 2022 capital inflows outpace 2021 figures .for the early stage and Series A funding rounds. It increasingly lagged in 2021 values ​​in the later funding stages.
  • More than 60% share of the total value of venture financing comes from North America. But at the regional level, Middle East set record amounts for venture funding in the second quarter of 2022. Europe maintains momentum in 2022 and has not experienced the quarter-on-quarter decline in venture funding seen in North America.

In the shadow of the pandemic, huge investments have poured into digital health. The digital health sector has grown significantly over the past decade, with 2 billion dollars invested in 2011 and 44 billion dollars in 2021 from global financial and corporate markets. But over the past year, investors have been more selective in their decisions. The Global State of Digital Health Report will examine these changes and outline best practices in investment strategies.

The first of two reports will set the stage for future reports summarizing the past year in digital health and will focus on global investment insights, categories and therapies, to name a few topics that have high potential to benefit from digital applications and Trends for 2023 Mr.

“With venture funding slowing in 2022, digital health is being anchored back to reality, becoming more focused and requiring more scrutiny of whether businesses are offering solutions that will bring value to the digital health ecosystem,” said Julien de Salaberry, CEO and co-founder of Galen Growth. “This joint report with FINN Partners will explore how businesses are addressing these challenges and preparing to show evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of their solutions.”

“FINN Partners is excited to pair with Galen Growth to take a deeper look at the digital health landscape,” they said Ritesh Patel, Senior Partner, Global Digital Health Lead at FINN Partners. “The rapidly expanding digital health ecosystem must be leveraged to improve patient outcomes. This series of studies will help inform the choices that providers, payers, product innovators and patients will have to make in the coming years.”

FINN’s digital health leaders will provide their perspective, analysis and guidance to complement the data and insights developed by the Galen Growth team to help stakeholders navigate and engage with the global digital health landscape.

“The health care system has long been resistant to change. Health information – delivered through digital platforms – has changed the way patients are cared for and shifted the tone and expectations among decision makers navigating the fragmented healthcare ecosystem,” said Gil Bashe, Chairman of Global Health and Purpose, FINN Partners. “The Galen Growth/FINN partnership will offer sector insights – private and public – that we hope will attract investors and innovators to ideas that can sustain and save lives faster.”
