Healthcare investors say health IT is their No. 1 sector for investment in 2019, according to KPMG-Leavitt Partners 2019 Investment Outlook.

For the outlook, KPMG and Leavitt Partners surveyed 175 healthcare investment professionals from corporations, health systems, investment banks, venture capital and private equity firms about their investment plans for 2019.

Here are the top five subsectors investors say they are in investing in during 2019:

  1. Healthcare IT: 34 percent
  2. Care management: 31 percent
  3. Home health services: 23 percent
  4. Retail-centric medical groups: 22 percent
  5. Primary care physician medical groups: 21 percent

Although they deemed IT the top sector to invest in, over half of respondents — 64 percent — said they see health IT as an overvalued sector. On the other hand, 40 percent said they expect to see health IT company valuations increase in 2019.
