18 August 2020

Machine intelligence and big data analyst firm CB Insights has put together a list of what it considers to be today’s 150 “most promising” private digital health startups. Leuven-based brain imaging AI leader icometrix made the list for the second year in a row.


The 2020 Digital Health 150 cohort highlights startups that are reimagining the lines of the traditional healthcare experience across 12 categories, from Virtual Care Delivery and Clinical Trials, to Drug Discovery and Specialty Care.

“This year’s Digital Health 150 is our most global ever, covering the best private healthcare companies from 17 countries. Beyond geographic diversity, these companies are innovating across the entire healthcare value chain, spanning technologies that benefit pharma & biotech companies, to payers, hospitals, insurers, and more,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal.

"We are honoured to receive this renewed recognition by CB Insights," said Wim Van Hecke, CEO of icometrix. "Innovative digital health solutions are changing healthcare at a rapid pace. Through our brain MRI and CT measures, we help radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and their referring physicians to make more informed and more accurate decisions for patients with neurological disorders. With our recently launched icompanion, a free app for people with multiple sclerosis to track symptoms, treatments, physician visits, as well as view their MRI scans on-the-go. All of this contributes to enhanced patient care worldwide, providing individual patients with the right treatment at the right moment," Van Hecke concludes.
