CVS to be top acquirer of healthcare companies in 2023: Survey

CVS was predicted to be the top acquirer of healthcare companies in 2023, followed by Amazon and Optum, according to a recent survey by Health Tech Nerds. 

Researchers included responses from 90 health tech experts — including startup operators, founders, investors, corporate employees and more — to get a perspective on what the health tech industry can expect in 2023. Here are some of the predictions:

  • The initial public offering market will continue to slow down throughout 2023, with 45 percent of health tech experts predicting two or fewer health tech companies to go public in the new year.

  • Sixteen percent of respondents predicted that no private digital health companies are likely to go public this year, while another 23 percent of respondents said they are unsure on the subject entirely.

  • Twenty percent of the respondents said CVS will be the "top acquirer" in health mergers and acquisitions, followed by Amazon and Optum.

  • Fundraising is expected to be the biggest obstacle facing health tech startups in 2023.

  • Respondents say care delivery is expected to see the most venture capital funding in 2023, with infrastructure startups coming in second.
