The MHealth market is a mature market, with the acquisitions since 2017 indicate maturity: they increased steadily until 2016, but settled from 2017 onwards indicating the beginning of the maturity stage of the sector. 

Before looking at the main investors in the sector, we explain what MHealth is. MHealth or mobile health refers to the use of mobile technology to manage people's health and well-being. It is commonly used with the support of mobile devices, such as PDAs, mobile phones, tablets or patient monitoring devices, among others. One of the most well known investments was in 2014 when Apple bought Glimpse, a personal health data platform where users or patients can collect, personalise and share an image of their health data.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.
