The North America Health Tech 200 is HolonIQ’s annual list of the most promising startups from across digital health, biotech, medtech and related areas where entrepreneurs are driving healthcare innovation.
The past 12 months have proved particularly challenging for tech-focused startups in healthcare, with many fast-growth organizations in North America forced to make staff cutbacks to account for changing markets. The return to traditional models of delivering healthcare services now that the restrictions of the pandemic have been lifted has undoubtedly checked momentum for digital health players. However, Health Tech remains a critical focus across healthcare systems and investment portfolios as technology is harnessed to provide greater access and improve outcomes - all against the backdrop of rising costs of delivery across all aspects of healthcare. As our 2022 cohort demonstrates, as a sector, healthcare continues to attract high-quality entrepreneurs determined to address the substantial challenges facing healthcare systems across North America and globally.
The North America Health Tech 200 is focused on identifying young, fast growing and innovative health, biotech and medtech start-ups in Canada and the United States. Powered by data and insights from our Impact Intelligence Platform together with qualitative assessments by HolonIQ’s Intelligence Unit, and local market experts in each region, organizations are evaluated and scored based on our eligibility and assessment criteria.
