Twin Health recognized for achievements in reversing and preventing chronic metabolic disease
NEW YORK, December 08, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CB Insights today named Twin Health to its third annual Digital Health 150, which showcases the 150 most promising private digital health companies in the world. This year’s Digital Health 150 was unveiled live during CB Insights’ annual Future of Health event.
The 2021 Digital Health 150 cohort has raised roughly $14.9B in aggregate funding across 522 deals since 2016, and includes startups at various investment stages of development, from early-stage to well-funded unicorns. Companies this year include startups working on data integration & analytics, hybrid virtual / in-person care, digital therapeutics, clinical intelligence, and more.
"This year’s Digital Health 150 is one of our most expansive yet, spotlighting 16 categories including virtual care, clinical trials tech, and workflow automation, as well as adding new categories such as home health tech and computer-aided imaging," said Brian Lee, SVP of CB Insights’ Intelligence Unit. "Last year's class has seen more than 20 exits, raised an additional $18.6B in aggregate funding, and announced over 250 partnerships since being recognized, and we’re excited to see the future success of this year’s winners."
Twin Health invented the Whole Body Digital Twin to help reverse and prevent chronic metabolic disease. Powered by artificial intelligence, the Whole Body Digital Twin is a dynamic representation of each individual’s unique metabolism, built from thousands of data points collected via non-invasive wearable sensors and self-reported preferences. "Medical research has shown that each person’s metabolism functions differently, making it almost impossible for healthcare providers to customize care for each person," says Jahangir Mohammed, founder and CEO of Twin Health. "The Whole Body Digital Twin provides real-time insight into an individual’s health, giving you a view into your complex biology, continuously learning about you and providing precise insights for what you can do to improve your health in the moment. We are incredibly pleased to have received this recognition as we scale in the U.S. and globally."
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights research team selected the Digital Health 150 from a pool of over 11,000 companies, including applicants and nominees. They were chosen based on several factors, including data submitted by the companies, company business models and momentum in the market, and Mosaic scores, CB Insights’ proprietary algorithm that measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies.
Twin Health’s Whole Body Digital Twin precision health service leverages AI to help reverse and prevent chronic metabolic diseases, improving physical health and energy. The Twin service provides individualized nutrition, sleep, activity and breathing guidance to patients and their healthcare providers. The company's clinical research team is conducting the first randomized controlled trial for reversing chronic metabolic disease using digital twin technology, with early results in peer-reviewed journals showing health outcomes across a number of conditions, including over 90% achieving type 2 diabetes reversal (HbA1c less than 6.5), and 92% eliminating all diabetes medications.
