Foley Partner Chris Donovan, Co-Chair of the firm’s Health Care Industry Team, will be moderating “Trending Towards a Record-Breaking Year in Digital Health Investments” webinar during the HLTH Matters GoLIVE Webinar Series on Thursday, November 12, at 1:00 p.m. ET. With $9.4B invested in digital health companies through the third quarter of 2020, this year will be one for the record books, in more ways than one. Digital health was thrust into the spotlight and proven to be the saving grace for many during the pandemic’s ups and downs. True digital health pioneers have known the benefits for years, but with an unintended and unfortunate proof of concept with COVID-19, everyone’s eyes have been opened. The increased funding is crucial to get these amazing technologies into the hands of more patients, providers and all those who need them to increase access, improve quality and reduce the gaps in care that have been widened by COVID-19.
Aside from the record breaking number, how else has the digital health investment landscape changed over the course of 2020? What can we expect moving into 2021? Top investment leaders from venture capital, private equity, and strategic investing will walk us through their predictions, hopes, and foreseen challenges in the space.
Chris will be joined by the following panelists:
- Katherine Wood, Principal, TPG Capital
- Julie Yoo, General Partner, Andreessen Horowitz
- Rich Mattera, Chief Development Officer, UnitedHealth Group
