SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2014, Health 2.0 tracked a record-breaking $4.6 billion of funding pouring into the digital health space. This impressive sum was further tracked and divided across the four categories Health 2.0 uses to segment the digital health space: consumer facing ($1.74 billion), professional facing ($1.78 billion), patient-provider communication ($423 million), and data, analytics, and exchange ($497 million). While these numbers suggest a relatively even split between the consumer and professional facing worlds with the other two categories trailing behind, an analysis of products in the space reveals a different outlook.
Currently, of the 4,000 products Health 2.0 tracks, 2,286 (or 57%) are consumer oriented, while only 1,006 (25%) are professional facing. This excess of consumer facing trackers compared to a relative dearth of professional facing tools and services at a time when providers are transitioning to value-based care and still wrestling with electronic medical records (EMRs) suggests that 2015 may be the year the professional facing category outpaces the others in terms of both funding and new product introduction.
Each quarter, Health 2.0 will release a set of summary data and analysis that examines where industry funding is headed, which product segments are growing fastest, and where new company formation is happening to track this trend. The first such release can be seen here and represents a snapshot of the information captured as Health 2.0 actively tracks and segments the digital health market. Now, Health 2.0 is capitalizing on its unique industry positioning and data tracking methodologies to funnel its knowledge and analysis into a new line of market intelligence products.
