So far in Q1 we see a record number of Healthcare IT projects getting the nod from VC firms. According to the Mercom Capital Group venture capital funding in the healthcare sector and, in particular, Healthcare IT funding has surpassed $184 million in 27 separate deals negotiated. This has far exceeded all former records of IT healthcare investment. A total of 46 investment firms were involved in these deals. Most cited the recent Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) act as the catalyst for growth in healthcare IT investment. Watch now for a robust mergers and acquisitions environment (sooner rather than later, I believe) with many of these deals adding liquidity to VC's pockets to do even more.
