Top 10 healthcare startups to watch at Web Summit 2022

What’s there for healthcare?

The range of industries represented by this year’s startups covers all human and business needs. At NERDZLAB, we chose to take a special look at healthcare, as it’s an industry that’s constantly evolving yet has some clear trends which are getting stronger each year. What’s more, we’re seeing startups coming up with innovative new technologies that they believe will transform the way we think about health.

A key trend is a rising emphasis on patient self-awareness and emotional health monitoring as a means to better manage mental health conditions. The use of wearable devices will help with this.

As a result, startups are trying to improve user experience through automation and artificial intelligence. This drive looks set to continue in the next couple of years, with startups focusing on helping people manage anxiety and depression with wearable devices.

Another ongoing trend is using technology to make healthcare services more accessible. This is not just about giving people insurance or making care more affordable; it’s also about ensuring patients can access quality care when needed. This means working with telehealth providers and building apps that link patients with doctors via video chat, text messaging, and other forms of communication.

All of these trends are represented in the startups we’ve covered in this review. What’s more, all ten startups in our list prove that healthcare software development services have already gone beyond routine automation of common healthcare tasks.
