Now in its sixth year, the annual Global Digital Health 100 is one of the health tech industry’s foremost technology award programmes, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship. It recognises and supports health technology companies that are demonstrating the greatest potential to change the way that healthcare is delivered.
Commenting on the announcement Matthew Driver, Editor-in-Chief at the Journal of mHealth, said:
“The Global Digital Health 100 recognises and celebrates the companies and technology leaders within the industry that are raising the bar and shaping the future of healthcare delivery. We are proud to support the growth and success of this thriving technology industry which is being led by the honourees of these awards.
“As a leading publication in Europe and North America The Journal of mHealth gains a unique perspective from our relationship with emerging health technology markets around the world. This enables us to bring one of the most comprehensive lists of technology providers who are representative of the latest technology trends from across the healthcare industry.”
The Global Digital Health 100 represents months of analysis by the editorial and advisory team at The Journal of mHealth, who considered the offerings and innovations from companies across the health tech ecosystem.
The judging criteria analysed 10 different quantitative and qualitative evaluation metrics including: disruptive impact; proof of concept; technology innovation; social value; effectiveness; execution of strategy; and, industry integration. The selected 100 companies demonstrate true innovation and the opportunity to disrupt the delivery of healthcare at scale. The selection criteria ensure that companies are considered truly upon innovation, allowing start-up offerings to be compared alongside established and larger organisations.
