WCIT Medicine and Health & Entrepreneurs Panel Annual Digital Health Market Update

Kindly supported by Goodwin Proctor, an Am Law 50 US law firm, we heard from Liveryman Jonathan Ishee and his colleague Geoffrey Starr about the state of transactions within the global digital health market.

Jonathan (who specialises in advising investors, technology companies, and healthcare providers, on mergers, acquisitions, data privacy, security, regulatory requirements, and healthcare information technology) shared with us how the volume of transactions have declined since the peak during the pandemic of 2021.

Geoffrey, (who represents high growth companies operating in technology-focused industries, including life sciences, digital health, medtech, software, and data analytics) shared with us the funding landscape and how the winners are changing the business model to remain buoyant. The view is that there is much more consolidation to happen. A number of “darling companies”, including Babylon have run out of funding and we are likely to see more of this.

However, with a shift towards a more revenue / process approach rather than point tech solutions, many companies are driving success.

A wonderful evening of fun and fellowship, including a curry supper, discussions learning was had by all.
