A thriving biohealth industry supports health care's tech innovation
The growing intersection between health care and information technology is disrupting and revolutionizing the traditional ways of providing health care. Health tech applies systems and information to achieve one or more of the triple-aim objectives of health care: reduced costs, improved patient experience and better health outcomes. Investors poured nearly $10 billion into digital health companies in 2017. This is also a global trend, with venture capital and private equity funding for digital health growing around the world.
JobsOhio has identified health tech as one of Ohio's most important cross sector strategies, as it has the potential to attract significant investments and create lucrative jobs. Many well-known health tech companies, such as Covermymeds, IBM/Explorys, GenomOncology and DocHalo, already call Ohio home.
