As health care companies raised a record-breaking $31.6 billion during the first quarter of 2021, investors drove home two big points:
- Health care providers adopted digital technologies like virtual care solutions in astonishing numbers as they pushed through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Health care innovation is just getting started.
I’ve never been more optimistic about the opportunities to dramatically change health care. We have the ability to expand access to more people around the world, achieve the goals of precision health, and ultimately improve outcomes. But to succeed, health care leaders need to rethink what this crisis revealed and then reshape how they deliver care.
