Venture capital funding for emerging healthcare information technology companies in the first nine months of 2017 has already surpassed 2016’s total, which was an all-time record in excess of $5 billion in a calendar year.

That data, from Mercom Capital Group, a global communications and research firm, shows that venture capital in 2017 will set a new record for investment in the healthcare IT sector.
