DigitalHealthGlobal1...Recognising Innovation and Emerging Technologies in Healthcare


Providing valuable insight on emerging technology trends from across the healthcare continuum, the Global Digital Health 100 has consistently identified early-stage solution providers that have gone on to become some of the world’s most successful health technology companies, including: Babylon Health, SilverCloud Health, One Medical, and Butterfly Network - making it an essential resource for industry professionals and investors alike.


The diversity of this year’s list stands out immediately, with new entrants from all sides of the technology spectrum, targeting just about every corner of healthcare. The honouree companies offer technologies across a range of categories including; clinical solutions, wearable technologies, healthcare applications, medical devices, virtual reality and data analytics. These are all solutions and services that are transforming, or have the potential to transform, and disrupt the way in which healthcare is delivered.


Emerging Trends in Health Technology


One of biggest trends from this year’s 100 is the growing adoption of data-led services across nearly all facets of healthcare. From automating critical, but repetitive, tasks for clinicians to speeding up disease diagnosis, the growing application of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques across healthcare represents a maturing industry. Increasingly, these technologies are seen as go-to tools for supporting care provision and for automating common and high value administrative functions such as patient scheduling and clinician record transcription.


Diagnostic support and clinical guidance are another area of growth seen in this year’s list. Improvements to health data access is fuelling a growing cohort of providers looking to tackle disease recognition and identify improved treatment opportunities through data-driven techniques.


Digital Therapeutics also feature heavily in this year’s list, as the impact of these solutions start to be truly realised. Scalable programmes across many different disease classes such as mental health and diabetes are delivering results for patients that are comparable to, or exceed, their pharmacological counterparts, providing a viable and effective treatment alternative.  


Commenting on the announcement Matthew Driver, Editor-in-Chief at The Journal of mHealth, said: “The Global Digital Health 100 recognises and celebrates the companies and technology leaders within the industry that are raising the bar and shaping the future of healthcare delivery.  We are proud to support the growth and success of this thriving technology industry which is being led by the honourees of these awards.”


“As a leading publication in Europe and North America The Journal of mHealth gains a unique perspective from our relationship with emerging health technology markets around the World. This enables us to bring one of the most comprehensive lists of technology providers who are representative of the latest technology trends from across the healthcare industry.”
