2019 Largest for Telehealth Investment

July 9th, 2019

2019 is shaping up to be the largest year ever for telehealth investment… by a long shot.  Already almost $5 Billion has been invested in all areas of telehealth – services, technology, hardware and software platforms.  Not only are there diverse companies being funded, but there is a healthy variety of stages being funded as well, from seed and A round investments to rounds with >$100 million as well.  Moreover, many of the initial investors are re-investing in follow up rounds (~65-70%), an indication of a healthy and growing market, higher valuations and investor confidence.  The 43 acquisitions in the first six months, as well as the news of the impending IPO’s of Livongo and Change Healthcare, speak to the stability of the space.  While some continue to caution that we are riding a digital health bubble, there are no indications from the market activity that it is the case.
