Share

Healthtech solutions are rising in the ranks as the healthcare industry continues to experience aggressive growth in the digitalization of services. Practitioners and patients alike are expecting increasingly seamless, instantly accessible, and connected care. In fact, the worldwide digital health market is forecast to hit $1,592 billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 25.3%. 

Moreover, the heightened uptake of wearable tech like smartwatches means that more people are tapping into their health metrics from the comfort of their screens. Particularly for individuals with chronic conditions, technology is proving increasingly valuable in nurturing quality of life and symptom management. An added bonus is that many apps are embedding functions for people to share insights with their doctors. 

Here’s a look at emerging healthtech startups to keep a pulse on this year.

Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of the disease: harrowing stats show that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Frighteningly, five or more sunburns can double your risk of melanoma.

Through a platform that analyzes patient speech in a one-minute voice test, Callyope is empowering psychiatrists to deliver personalized care and cut down timeframes for mapping out appropriate treatment plans. 

Their platform-based speech test can be accessed either in-clinic or within the comfort of one’s home, analyzing patients’ voice (acoustics) and language (content).

The platform leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to track factors like weather, food, and nutrition, providing daily insights that help identify contextual conditions and symptoms such as mood swings and panic attacks. Spectrums.ai then offers users (caretakers in some cases) suggested care options, providing curated reports that can be shared with external organizations such as doctors, employers, and educators. 

The platform aims to create a safer space for neurodivergent people to live, learn, and work in by empowering involved parties with the right tools and insights to manage symptoms.
