The behavioral health segment of digital health has grabbed a lot of attention, especially since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Last year, digital health startups offering mental healthcare raised $5.1 billion, outstripping all other clinical indications by a whopping $3.3 billion and nearly double 2020’s funding total, according to a Rock Health report analyzing investment trends in 2021. The report noted that some of the factors driving this trend include the integration of mental health services into broader virtual care platforms and the rise of virtual options even for intensive behavioral health needs.
Mental health will be part of the conversation at the MedCity INVEST Digital Health conference in Dallas scheduled for September 28, in collaboration with Health Wildcatters. The panel, “Can mental illness be addressed with technology and without drugs?” will explore how digital health tools are addressing these needs.
