In the fourth quarter of 2020, Health-Trends again welcomed 7 new Swiss digital health startups to our SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH MAP. The map also appears in a new consolidated form. Learn more about the reasons for this change in this blog post.

The fourth quarter of this year was again marked by further growth in our map. Compared to the previous quarterly update at the beginning of October, we welcomed 7 new Swiss digital health startups to the map. In the same period, however, the map was adjusted fundamentally and shows now a total of 171 Swiss digital health startups. Why this revision?

The SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH MAP comes with a consolidated look

Health-Trends revises the SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH MAP once a year and reviews all companies that are depicted on it. Our team made intensive use of the Christmas holidays and carried out a thorough update. In doing so, we would particularly like to map active digital health startups on the map, which is why we pay attention to various points during this revision:

  • Status of the company (i.e. active, in liquidation, etc. based on ZEFIX commercial register entry) and
  • development of the company (in terms of revenue, funding, team, company location, etc.).

If our team comes to the conclusion that a startup status is no longer given, a startup has ceased its activities or has moved its headquarters abroad, it is removed from the map. Of course, we also rely on your help from the Swiss digital health community here. If you hear news about individual startups that are relevant to their status, please let our team know via email ( or via our social media channels.

These are the new joiners on our map in January, 2021

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 January 2021, 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 and download the map in high resolution via the button below.
