The topic of digital health is still on the rise in Switzerland: The SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH MAP continued to grow in the third quarter of 2020 and we were able to welcome 9 new startups on our map in October 2020. So learn more about our latest digital health startup map-update in this blog post.
The third quarter of this year was again marked by further growth in our map. Compared to the previous quarterly update at the beginning of July, we welcomed 9 new digital health startups to the map. In the same period, however, the map was adjusted by 1 startup, resulting in a net growth of 8 new startups on the map. These adjustments are due to new information (e.g. discontinuation of business activities, relocation of headquarters abroad, etc.) that reaches us from the community.
Although our map is branded by Health-Trends, it lives from the many and numerous inputs from the Swiss health and innovation community. These inputs are especially valuable in turbulent times like the ones we are currently experiencing and help us to keep the map up-to-date. At the same time, the map helps to increase the visibility of start-ups in the market and can thus contribute to the overall digital health eco-system in Switzerland. Therefore we are proud to present you the latest update for October 2020, in cooperation with many national and international supporters:
The map is divided into 7 different categories. The division into categories is based on a self-declaration by the startups, which fill out an online survey. Learn more about the categories here https://www.health-trends.ch/map/ and download the map in high resolution via the button below.
