Global funding for artificial intelligence startups also saw one of the largest declines of funding since 2019, according to the report.

As AI healthcare funding declines, digital front door funding reached a record high of $1.9 billion in 2021, up 67 percent year-over-year as patients, providers and investors see increased opportunity in a hybrid health model.
