2. In the first half of 2019, there were 73 transactions in the health IT and RCM sectors, 60 percent of which were completed by private equity or private equity-backed buyers.

3. Greenberg Advisors said venture capital has continued to invest in the health IT and RCM sectors, specifically for technology surrounding clinical analytics, clinical decision support and patient engagement.
