In the first half of 2014, investors spent $2.3B with more than 140 digital companies as the focus shifted from electronic health records to developers of consumer-oriented applications, wearables and health data & analytics.
As Providers (hospitals, clinics, and physicians) and Payers (insurance companies) have increased demands to know more about the data they’re collecting, a strong emphasis has begun to grown on analytics and data mining. For example, 70% of people use the internet to search about their condition and 40% have their condition confirmed by a physician. In addition, patients are going online to do Provider comparison shopping. This means they are weighing the cost benefit analysis of using expensive healthcare treatments.
