Online PR News – 27-July-2012 – Tokyo,Japan – Anderson, Lloyd, Jones and Associates (ALJA) thinks Digital Health is the newly emerging most beneficial investment sector as it showed 317% jump in financings during the first half of 2012. ALJA consider Digital Health a new investment project and already has started detailed background research on it.
“The increased funding in the digital health arena reflects a growing awareness of the transformative power of these technologies bringing to healthcare,” says a very close source of ALJA. “It is also an area that is attracting both traditional technology and life sciences investors, who recognize the ability these technologies have to reduce cost, improve care, and personalize care.”
Investments in this sector have accelerated as venture funding grew to $499 million in 46 transactions during the first half of the year, compared to just $156 million in 19 transactions for the same period in 2011. Again the growing venture investment in digital health is part of an overall pick-up in venture activity in the first half of 2012 within the life sciences sector as total venture investment grew nearly 31% globally to $6.2 billion.
So ALJA is giving this new yet much potential investment field a great importance and even it is willing to invest up to $100 million in the Q4 of 2012 if the candidates can show that much possible return. ALJA believes that the current volatile market didn’t just bring a hazard on the investors rather it has also opened many new and much profitable investment paths.
