DCA’s Approach to Digital Health Investment
Investing in Digital Health has the potential to be particularly lucrative over the next few decades. To take advantage of those growth prospects, DCA is investing in companies with different approaches to impacting health outcomes. Specific examples include companies that have a direct impact on these outcomes by focusing on social determinants of health, telemedicine and those with indirect influence by targeting workflow management, optimization and efficiency. The healthcare industry is known for its legacy systems, both technical and non-technical. DCA believes that many of the problems present in the healthcare industry can lead to long-term growth across the sector, stemming from digitization of direct care, workflow management, customer relation management, and more.
DCA's Crossover Strategy
Crossover investing is a key trend across the capital markets and an important component to DCA’s approach to Digital Health investment. Put simply, a venture capital crossover fund is one that invests in both private and publicly traded companies, such as funds that hold onto some or all of their portfolio companies after they go public. DCA fully expects crossover investing to be a long-term trend that will play a prominent role in shaping the future of venture capital for a variety of reasons.
