The 2021 Digital Health 150 cohort has raised roughly US$14.9bn (£11.3bn) in aggregate funding across 522 deals since 2016, and includes start-ups at various investment stages of development, from early-stage to well-funded unicorns. Companies this year include start-ups working on data integration & analytics, hybrid virtual/in-person care, digital therapeutics, clinical intelligence, and more.

“This year’s Digital Health 150 is one of our most expansive yet, spotlighting 16 categories including virtual care, clinical trials tech, and workflow automation, as well as adding new categories such as home health tech and computer-aided imaging,” said Brian Lee, SVP of CB Insights’ Intelligence Unit.

“Last year’s class has seen more than 20 exits, raised an additional US$18.6bn in aggregate funding, and announced over 250 partnerships since being recognised, and we’re excited to see the future success of this year’s winners.”

A Birdie spokesperson said: “At Birdie, we’re on an exciting mission to disrupt care at home, starting with the ones who need it the most: our elders. The Birdie team has been relentless to bring innovative solutions to offer a new kind of care. We’re so proud to be named top 150 Most Innovate Digital Health Start-ups in the world and top 2 in Home Health Tech by CB Insights. It is such a testimony to the unwavering commitment of our Birdie team to make that change happen but also marks the start of a healthcare revolution that will take place at home and in our communities.”

Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from a pool of over 11,000 companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on several factors, including data submitted by the companies, company business models and momentum in the market, and Mosaic scores, CB Insights’ proprietary algorithm that measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies.
