Healthcare is among the least digitised consumer categories, but things are starting to change. The market is heavily regulated, but increasingly embracing things like telemedicine and predictive diagnostics. Pressure from ageing population, spiralling costs and staffing shortages are driving that. Now, increasing awareness about pandemic risks in a globalised world may well accelerate that change further (similar to remote working).
Our upcoming report on online marketpalces in partnership with Adevinta, Speedinvest and Point Nine Capital will dive deeper. In the meantime we're working on an interactive consumer healthcare landscape, including: telemedicine & appointment booking, insurance, pharmacies, mental health, home diagnostics, elderly care, DNA testing, and femtech. Let us know which categories or startups to add via the green button on the screen!
