How does Lean Capital develop healthcare businesses?
The development of societies is not possible without the presence of healthy citizens; For this reason, in any advanced society, the issue of health and health is one of the important and main priorities of policy makers. The importance of the health sector, especially in recent years and with the passing of the corona virus epidemic, has become more visible and tangible for everyone.
The health sector, like any other sector, is facing increasing challenges such as increasing treatment costs, lack of fair access to doctors in different regions, lack of specialist doctors, and issues like this. In the meantime, phenomena such as the gradual aging of the population and diseases caused by the unhealthy lifestyle of citizens have also increased and created bigger challenges in different societies.
Various solutions have been used to solve these challenges. The link between health and technology has created new and innovative phenomena such as digital health and telemedicine.
The use of these new and technological solutions has shown its effective consequences gradually in different parts of the world by increasing the quality of services, reducing costs and expanding the level of access to medical services.
The positive and constructive results of startups and companies active in the field of digital health have led to significant growth in the amount of investment in this sector over time. According to the statistics of the Healthtech Institute, the amount of investment in the digital health sector in 2021 has grown by 79% compared to the previous year and has reached a remarkable figure of 57.2 billion dollars. Forecasts indicate that the value of the digital health market will reach about 600 billion dollars by 2026.
According to cbinsights, only in the first quarter of this year, 6 new unicorns (companies with a value of more than one billion dollars) have been added to the world’s largest digital health startups.
The pristine and extensive capacities of the health sector have made this sector the third most popular industry among the industries favored by private investment companies.
