Galen Growth is pleased to share with you this report on the Global Digital Health Ecosystem in China. We take a deep look at the macro and microeconomic conditions that make mainland China a hotspot globally for digital health. This is complemented by an analysis on the venture categories, partnerships, key trends, noteworthy deals, exits, and investors.
With unmatched, unparalleled and indispensable coverage of the global digital health ecosystems, this report is powered by HealthTech Alpha, a Galen Growth proprietary solution, and the world’s #1 digital health private market data and analytics platform.
China’s ecosystem is excelling in digital health readiness and implementation, even though the macroeconomic conditions are limiting access to technology in rural parts of the country and slow acceptance due to the low cost of basic care.
The digital health ecosystem feels threatened by governmental probes into data security and new data privacy laws. However, long-term, increased data security regulation could pave the way for Chinese ventures to get a foothold in international ecosystems, such as Europe, and improve overall macroeconomic conditions in China’s Digital Health Readiness Index.
Globally, 11% of venture funding in digital health in H1 2021 was deployed to ventures in China, with cumulative H1 funding of $2.53B, which is a rebound to just above 2019 levels after dropping 72% in H1 2020 amid the uncertainty of the pandemic.
