Digital health investments exceeded 2020 levels by July of last year, with total funding of U.S.-based digital health startups amounted to $29.1 billion across 729 deals, with an average deal size of $39.9 million. Investments in technology for treatment grew 2.5 times year over year, with a focus on prescription digital therapeutics."
