United States Digital Health Ecosystem Key Trends FY 2020


Despite a year of pandemic headwinds and economic recession in all four corners of the world, digital health across the globe captured a record-breaking $25B (all currency in USD) in venture capital funding, which excludes all M&A and IPO activities, up 34% from 2019.

The United States Digital Health ecosystem closed the year at US$17.04B in venture capital funding, up 59% from 2019.  This excludes all M&A and IPO deal activities.

After a strong Q1 for funding, the global shock from Covid-19 resulted in a weak Q2 for deal volume, but there was a rebound in H2 for a strong finish to the year.  The impact of the pandemic is evident in cluster segmentation, where the highest-funded digital health cluster for 2020 is Telemedicine, and it is evident in the Therapeutic Focus area segmentation, where funding for Infections Diseases grew 5x from 2019 to reach $1.12B.

In this report, we focus our analysis on the venture funding key trends, noteworthy deals, exits, partnerships and investors as well as deep dive into five key focus areas for the region in 2020.
