In a world where phones can offer a variety of personalized, digital solutions for all kinds of regular necessities, it’s easy to overlook the growing accessibility and convenience of healthcare in the palm of your hand.

So much of healthcare is in person, but the sizable advancements technology has made in the healthcare field are everywhere, and healthtech is only growing from here. According to Grand View Research, the digital healthcare market is expected to reach over $946 billion by 2030. Like other service-related technological innovations, technology in healthcare allows for greater communication, stronger collaboration between providers and faster, more accurate results that are personalized to every individual.

Boston’s two featured companies this month, ZS and Cohere Health, are two tech organizations harnessing the power of technology to advance the healthcare industry.
