Abstract: Digital Health is driving the uptake in wearable devices replete with biometric sensors. Digital Health is concerned with improving human health by utilizing such high-profile applications of wearable and implantable technology, web and email, mobile technology and social networking, and data management and analytics. As one of the most significant drivers of the consumer health-tech revolution, Digital Health innovation occurs at the intersection of consumer products, advanced technology, medicine, and big data. The multi-industry, multi-discipline, and multinational character of Digital Health, requires a unique environment in which innovation can occur. Investors and entrepreneurs from the tech sector, health care, and consumer products are creating these new environments. This paper surveys the most interesting Digital Health innovation ecosystems and the funding mechanisms to foster discovery though commercialization through adoption.
