NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CB Insights today named Abacus Insights to its second annual Digital Health 150 ranking, which showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world.
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."
“We’re honored to be included by CB Insights alongside other leaders in digital health,” said Dr. Minal Patel, founder and CEO of Abacus Insights. “With our recent announcement of the launch of our CMS Interoperability Solution and our designation as a Qualified Entity, we are focused on helping health plans liberate their data to improve the quality of healthcare and outcomes for patients. We have assembled a team that brings tremendous domain expertise in healthcare combined with deep technical cloud computing and data experience. With Abacus Insights, health plans work seamlessly with a team that can both help them comply with the CMS mandate and innovate faster to transform their business, but more importantly bring solutions that improve the lives of the members they serve.”
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from hundreds of applications based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
