FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CB Insights today named CarePredict to the inaugural Digital Health 150 ranking, showcasing the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world. CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal revealed the final Digital Health 150 during Future of Health, a gathering of top executives across some of the largest healthcare institutions, startups, and investment firms. CarePredict is among the nine companies recognized in the Consumer Health and Wellness category of the Digital Health 150 list.
"Technology is rapidly changing healthcare, and The Digital Health 150 showcases the 150 best startups spearheading innovation and change in the sector," said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. "It's a privilege to use CB Insights' data to identify and shine a light on these companies, and we look forward to tracking their success in 2019 and beyond."
The first annual Digital Health 150 list companies span the globe, from Canada, China, Germany, Israel, the United States, and the United Kingdom, and are supported by more than 850 investors.
"It is a great honor to be recognized among the 150 most promising digital health companies worldwide," said Satish Movva, CEO & Founder, CarePredict. "As a digital health company in senior care, we are successfully augmenting human observation with continuous machine sensing and learning that allows seniors to age independently, economically, and longer. We are thrilled that the value of our predictive senior care models is being recognized not just by those using our solution but also by investors and healthcare thought leaders."
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from hundreds of applications based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights' algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company's momentum.
CarePredict is the first-to-market with an Artificial Intelligence-powered solution that predicts the probability of health declines in seniors based on changes in their daily activity and behavior patterns. CarePredict won the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) Foundation's Accessibility Contest at CES earlier this year and was the only U.S. company to be selected as a finalist for the Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation of the Year in the Technology category.
