Silicon Valley Bank survey finds big data, artificial intelligence hold promise for healthcare technologies

Silicon Valley Bank has released results from a survey of 122 founders, executives and investors in health-tech companies that found big data and artificial intelligence could have the greatest impact on the industry in the year ahead, the company said.

Healthcare delivery and healthcare IT also promise the most growth in 2017.

Thirty-four percent of survey respondents say the success of existing technologies gaining traction will have the greatest impact on investment in the sector next year. Despite uncertainty, the upcoming US Presidential election was seen as least influential factor impacting investment in the industry (seven percent).

The HealthTech survey was conducted by Silicon Valley Bank.
