Venture capital dollars are pouring into digital health companies. Investment in US-based startups alone soared to a record $29.1 billion in 2021, nearly doubling the prior year’s record of $14.9 billion. Telemedicine, mental health, and wellness apps are several categories that have seen significant spikes in funding and adoption in the past year. But despite the monumental progress made in digital health technology, there are fundamentally large groups of people who are still not able to access this innovation, and are not getting their medical needs met through their existing healthcare benefits plans.
Nava is bridging the gap between the developments happening in digital health and the employees who are seeking modern healthcare at lower costs. As the only benefits broker on the list, Nava is making it easier for innovative healthcare companies to reach their target customers.
“We’re honored to be recognized on the NYC Digital Health 100 amongst great company for the second year in a row,” said Donald DeSantis, Nava’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer. “The award is a testament to the innovation happening in the space. We look forward to continuing to level up how modern benefits are accessed and offered to the people who need them.”
