NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Unite Us, a technology company building coordinated health and social care networks throughout the country, was today named to CB Insights' second annual Digital Health 150 ranking, which showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world. This is the second year in a row that Unite Us has been recognized by CB Insights for its excellence and innovation in the health care providers and services industry.
The 2020 Digital Health 150 cohort highlights startups that are reimagining the lines of the traditional healthcare experience across 12 categories, from Virtual Care Delivery and Clinical Trials, to Drug Discovery and Specialty Care. Countries represented this year include Canada, China, Israel, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others.
"This year's Digital Health 150 is our most global ever, covering the best private healthcare companies from 17 countries. Beyond geographic diversity, these companies are innovating across the entire healthcare value chain, spanning technologies that benefit pharma & biotech companies, to payers, hospitals, insurers, and more," said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. "Last year's Digital Health 150 winners saw numerous exits and went on to raise nearly $5 billion in investor financing after being recognized. We look forward to seeing the success of this year's class of the best in digital health."
"The Unite Us team is thrilled to once again be recognized by CB Insights as one of the most innovative digital health startups for our outcome-focused technology that powers coordinated care networks across the country to bridge the gap between health and social care," said Dan Brillman, Unite Us CEO. "We look forward to continuing our rapid growth across the country, expanding access to health and social care and building healthier communities alongside local partners. I look forward to seeing the impact our networks have in 2021."
