Top 100 Digital Health Companies Addressing Real-World Needs

About the Book

At the gateway of the transformation of the global healthcare industry by digital technology players, the market is extremely volatile. Start-ups show up, promise to disrupt the entire health scene, but go down just as fast having not received the necessary funding. Others change their profiles, partner with big pharma companies or lose the battle with another start-up providing a better technology. In addition, there is the issue of hype, buzzwords and overmarketing, which calls for careful consideration. In spite of all the challenges, The Medical Futurist team is working tirelessly to stay ahead of the turbulent market changes and bring you the list of the top 100 companies every year.

This year, we posed the question what the key is for a company to remain a significant player for a longer time, not just the features to gain ground on a turbulent market, and we found that if a venture, start-up, or enterprise comes up with a solution that addresses a real-world need, it will definitely find its place on the digital health market for many years. Of course, ‘real-world need’ is a fairly broad category, but it basically means touching upon a patient need or a healthcare issue that has not been solved before in any other way. ‘Real-world needs’ require solutions that put humans in the center of care, which are accessible, sustainable, take into account the diversity of our communities and cater to every special need. 

We believe that catering to ‘real-world needs’ is the feature that makes digital health companies stand out and this is how digital health companies can make the world a better place. So, here are the top 100 companies that are making a difference.
