Avail Medsystems Named to the 2020 CB Insights Digital Health 150 – List of Most Innovative Digital Health Startups

PALO ALTO, Calif — August 13, 2020 — CB Insights today named Avail Medsystems to its second annual  Digital Health 150 ranking, which showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world.

The 2020 Digital Health 150 cohort highlights startups that are reimagining the lines of the traditional healthcare experience across 12 categories, from Virtual Care Delivery and Clinical Trials, to Drug Discovery and Specialty Care. Countries represented this year include Canada, China, Israel, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others.

“This year’s Digital Health 150 is our most global ever, covering the best private healthcare companies from 17 countries. Beyond geographic diversity, these companies are innovating across the entire healthcare value chain, spanning technologies that benefit pharma & biotech companies, to payers, hospitals, insurers, and more,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “Last year’s Digital Health 150 winners saw numerous exits and went on to raise nearly $5 billion in investor financing after being recognized. We look forward to seeing the success of this year’s class of the best in digital health.”

Avail Medsystems is a medical technology company pioneering telemedicine for the procedure room (“Procedural TelemedicineTM”), which allows healthcare professionals and medical industry advisors to share expertise remotely via advanced audio/video technology and an intuitive user experience built for mobility. Over the past three years, Avail has leveraged more than 400 years of combined medical technology development, sales and marketing experience to create its Procedural TelemedicineTM System, so industry experts and healthcare professionals can provide support, train and share knowledge during live procedures – from anywhere. Now, as the COVID-19 pandemic compels healthcare providers to limit in-person procedure support, Avail’s purpose-built solution has become a tool of necessity enabling care providers, and the experts who support them, to continue collaborating during medical procedures regardless of location.

“It’s an honor to be named to the CB Insights Digital Health 150 list in recognition of Avail’s pioneering Procedural TelemedicineTM solution and our mission to remove the barriers of in-person procedure support and training,” said Avail CEO Daniel Hawkins. “We developed the Avail System to provide universal access to clinical and procedural expertise, regardless of location. We’re continuing to innovate and expand our product offerings, most recently with the launch of the Avail Portal which provides users multi-platform access to the Avail Network and enables enhanced management of remote collaboration activities. Collectively, our solutions provide significant benefits to industry experts, medical device representatives, physicians and surgeons — particularly in the ‘new normal’ of COVID-19.”

Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from hundreds of applications based on several factors including patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
