Proactive healthcare, rather than reactive healthcare, requires Preventive Health and Wellness solutions to keep a population healthier and therefore avoid expensive healthcare costs and overburdening the healthcare system. Galen Growth defines the focus area as including both the therapeutic areas of Preventive Health and Wellness, as well as encompassing all ventures in the Corporate Health category and the Wellness cluster

The global digital health ecosystem of ventures focusing on Wellness & Preventive Health is growing at a 5-year CAGR of 6%. Since 2017, 370 new ventures were incorporated, and 87 ventures have either been acquired or have issued a public offering, leaving 1385 active, private Digital Health ventures distributed globally. These Digital Health ventures have an unprecedented opportunity to significantly improve awareness, access and affordability to solutions, which now have proof points to change behaviours and reward new habits / improvements

Reducing escalating healthcare costs should be highly attractive to insurers, yet insurance companies have participated in less than 10% of the partnerships with Digital Health ventures in Wellness & Preventive Health. There are significant headwinds to be overcome, such as high drop-out rates, non-transparent reimbursement schemes, low payor confidence in long-term business cases and reluctant healthcare professional engagement

The highest concentration of ventures (26%) in Wellness & Preventive Health is in the United States, where employers typically pay part of the insurance premiums and therefore have financial incentive to offer Corporate Health programs to employees in order to directly reduce insurance premiums and indirectly reduce the cost of lost working hours
