Market Update: Healthcare IT & Consulting Q1 2022
M&A activity within the broader Healthcare IT & Consulting ecosystem has continued at a rapid pace through the first quarter of 2022, with nearly ~$26b in capital raised through the first three months of the year. Valuations have continued to soar for high-performing IT Services and software companies serving payors, providers, and life sciences customers, proving that even amidst global volatility, there is a massive market opportunity for vendors to drastically improve the overall healthcare ecosystem from patient engagement, to care delivery, to billing and collections, to population health, and everything in-between.
There are a variety of factors that are continually pushing the Healthcare IT & Consulting sector upmarket and increasing the adoption of technology within the healthcare ecosystem. The rapid shift towards value-based and ambulatory care, cost & regulatory pressure, the never-ending rise of consumerism in healthcare, and the consolidation of hospitals and providers are key forces acting on the industry and manifesting in advancements and adoption of new technologies. Combining these forces, IT Services leaders who can help healthcare-focused clients realize the benefits of change while disrupting the traditional continuum of care delivery will be best positioned to leverage industry tailwinds.
