Why has a new urgency returned to Healthtech?

"The healthtech sector is currently one of the most dynamic in technology M&A. Established healthcare providers struggle to respond to the reality of ageing populations, increasing patient demands, more expensive treatments, the rise of lifestyle diseases and are under immense pressure to reduce the cost of providing effective care while healthcare budgets spiral ever upwards.


We will continue to see high demand from acquirers and significant interest from private equity investors in companies that offer solutions to these challenges. Companies including Amazon, Apple, Google and IBM are also targeting the healthcare sector and raising the stakes for incumbents who will undoubtedly respond with enhanced M&A activity."
