Market map: Digital healthcare infrastructure

Feb 23, 2023

$4.3T is spent on healthcare in the US, approximately 18.3% of its GDP. And it’s growing. Here’s why it’s a great time to build the picks and shovels and the infrastructure companies powering new solutions.

Welcome to another installment in our market map series, a collaborative project mapping emerging opportunities in tech.

This deep dive into Digital Healthcare Infrastructure features 90+ companies building in the space, 60 active investors and insights from founders, investors and thought leaders.

We believe we are at a tipping point in digital healthcare infrastructure. As a new wave of digital healthcare companies emerges and existing ones scale, so does a need for enabling technologies to support them. Digital healthcare is now expanding to more complex procedures, severe cases of treatment, and demographics. In turn, companies in this space require another wave of healthcare infra businesses to improve workflows, connectivity, and interoperability.
