London, 30th January 2019: The Journal of mHealth has today announced their annual Global Digital Health 100 recognising the most innovative health technology companies from around the world. inMotion VR is proud to be part of this select list as we have been working tirelessly on creating the best VR rehab platform possible. As Corpus VR is already demonstrating, it’s a futureproof eHealth solution, one of the important requirements for proper implementation and acceptance.
The Global Digital Health 100 is one of the HealthTech industries 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.
This year’s 100 sees many new entrants from all sides of the HealthTech spectrum, from new innovators looking to apply technologies like artificial intelligence and virtual/augmented reality to healthcare, to solution providers who are demonstrating rapid growth in more established tech-led services like telehealth, digital therapeutics and behavioural change programmes.
From across the Health Continuum
The diversity of this year’s list stands out immediately. With innovations targeting just about every corner of healthcare, the honouree companies offer technologies across a range of categories including, clinical solutions, wearable technologies, healthcare applications, medical devices, virtual reality and data analytics. Like Corpus VR, these are all solutions and services that are transforming, or have the potential to transform, and disrupt the way in which healthcare is delivered.
The list also provides insight into the key sector trends that we are beginning to see emerge from across the healthcare continuum when it comes to the adoption of technology-led products and services.
Delivering Technology-led Services at Scale
Matthew Driver, Managing Editor of The Journal of mHealth, said “One of the most profound differences identifiable in this year’s cohort is the number of technology providers who are delivering their solutions at scale. In past years, many of our featured technologies have been limited by their relatively small user groups, but as the healthcare technology market continues to mature we are now beginning to see more and more solutions that are successfully delivering these technology-driven modalities to much larger user bases.”
Certain areas in particular saw stand out growth during 2018, including: Technology-delivered mental health treatment; diabetes tech; data-led disease management; telehealth; and behavioural change therapies.
