A term most often used to describe any technology-enabled solution for out of hospital/general practice healthcare, there’s been a huge global demand for healthtech solutions throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Remote digital health interventions provide a way to stick to social distancing guidance whilst treating and monitoring both COVID-19 and other illnesses.

The UK is driving forward growth in the global healthtech sector, with London being a leading hub within the industry. In fact, across the United Kingdom and the United States, over $51.3b in funding was raised for the healthtech sector in 2021 (up 280% since 2016). It has seen rapid transformation in recent years, where it used to be considered somewhat of a laggard. Startups, in particular, are now a source of major health innovation, and equity investment into these businesses is a key driver of innovation in the healthcare industry.

Here, we’ll explore what healthtech is exactly and how it could impact our healthcare systems of the future. We’ll also look at the state of the health technology ecosystem in the UK, and the country’s 20 top healthtech companies, ranked in order of investment raised to date.

What is healthtech and how does it differ from medtech?

A helpful definition of healthtech is “the use of technology (databases, applications, mobiles, wearables) to improve the delivery, payment, and/or consumption of care, with the ability to increase the development and commercialisation of medicinal products.” To put it simply, healthtech includes software, data, and other tech-enabled solutions that support healthcare opportunities.

While medical technology (or medtech) solutions tend to enhance in-hospital diagnostics, such as innovative medical devices, healthtech tends to refer to applications that are focused on improving personal and preventative care at home. Medtech products also generally require more regulatory approval than healthtech products before entering the market. You can learn more about the UK’s top medtech companies and their investors here.

What does the UK healthtech market look like in 2022?

The biggest factor to influence health technology in the UK has undoubtedly been the post-pandemic drive towards more efficient and flexible healthcare solutions. From at-home diagnosis support to tailored wellness programs, the demand for tech to do more for our physical and mental health needs, particularly when we’re unable to access on-site healthcare, is clear. And investors know it too, as venture capital investment into UK healthtech has continued to climb steadily throughout 2021, following a record high in 2019 (thanks in part to healthtech provider and unicorn company Babylon’s £454m raise that year).

Government funding has also accelerated growth in the healthtech sector as of late. In 2020, the UK Government provided £32m (across six initiatives) as part of their roadmap to ensure the country remains at the forefront of life sciences research and development. Funding was awarded to ventures including InlightenUs, Edinburgh Napier University’s hearing aid project COG-MHEAR, Heriot-Watt University’s laser solution firm u-care, and a Non-Invasive Single Neuron Electrical Monitoring project led by Imperial College London.
