After a banner year in 2021, Kaia Health has started 2022 incredibly well with the addition of more than 50 new clients from a wide range of industries, including 10 Fortune 500 employers. Powerful clinical trial results and a strong capital round have helped build the foundation for this growth. Results of the largest randomized controlled trial in the digital MSK industry showed Kaia Health cut costs by 80% compared to more traditional treatments. These results followed a highly successful $75 million Series C funding round, which is helping to further the company’s mission to solve the biggest healthcare challenges of accessible, equitable, affordable, and high-quality care.

The NYC Digital Health 100 was released in conjunction with the NYCHBL Healthcare Innovation Report 2022, an in-depth look at the data, trends, and insights that define the healthcare industry in NY. In 2021, 182 companies raised an historic high of $9.0B, a 150% increase from 2020 ($3.6B) and 87% of the investments went to start-ups in areas including virtual care, patient engagement, and mental health.

NYC Digital Health 100 Methodology

To compile the NYC Digital Health 100, NYCHBL used its dynamic database of digital health companies in the region and then invited companies to complete applications with quantitative and qualitative data to broaden the consideration set. A company qualified for consideration if it maintained headquarters or an office (over 10 people) in the New York region. Companies were judged on a number of factors, including but not limited to: strength of leadership, # of employees, funding (if known), revenue (if known), market fit, differentiated offerings, approach to diversity and equity, and community engagement.
