45 Best Healthcare Business Ideas For Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Interested to start a healthcare business but not quite sure what to start?

The good news is, there are so many opportunities to become an entrepreneur and build an innovative product/service in this line of work.

If you're looking to start your own healthcare business, there are several stunning options you can choose from.

We put a list together below of the most profitable healthcare business ideas you can start today!

Here they are:

1. Start a transcription service business ($1.2M/year)

Ben Walker from Denver, CO, USA started Transcription Outsourcing almost 11 years ago, a transcription service business.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 4
  • Location: Denver, CO, USA

I grew up in Omaha, NE with four siblings and parents who’ve started probably around 20 companies. So new companies, employees, clients, and everything that goes with starting new companies were normal dinner table topics. Not that we as kids were asked our opinions, more that we got to listen to our parents talk things through that were front and center for them at that time. Which were things like who to hire for what jobs, who to let go, where to start a new office or location, and if they should borrow more money for expansion or not.

We had front row seats and that has helped more than I would have ever guessed it would when I was 10 years old bored out of my mind not being able to join the conversation at dinner.

At the same time I was learning at dinner by osmosis I started playing tennis almost every day. Then I was able to go to an all-boys prep school for high school. Both of those things also contributed considerably to me ending up being a business owner.

2. Start a medical software development business ($1.2M/year)

James Bates from Scottsdale started AdviNow Medical almost 5 years ago, a medical software development business.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 25
  • Location: Scottsdale

Before AdviNOW, James ran a $1 Billion business in self-driving vehicle technology. When that business was sold, James retired. He quickly realized that similar artificial intelligence and augmented reality technologies can automate around the doctor as they automated around the driver of a car.

Entrepreneurs need to be creative, be persistent, and work hard to find success.

As a seasoned veteran, James is acutely aware of the potential pitfalls of launching a new technology that utilizes artificial intelligence. More important than all of that, though, James has a history of being at the forefront of innovation, seeing a clear vision of the future, and making it a reality. To reduce the barrier to healthcare James started his company, AdviNow (Advise Now) Medical, a pioneer in the AI-driven medical world. James’ vision is propelling the medical world to a highly advanced future.

3. Start a dermatology business ($12M/year)

Scott R. Melamed from Penfield, New York, USA started ProMD Health over 2 years ago, a dermatology business.

  • Revenue: $1,000,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 28
  • Location: Penfield, New York, USA

The concept for ProMD Health was initially created by my partner Dr. George Gavrila. Believe it or not, he began by treating toenail fungus using a single laser in a 1 room medical office. He was our first receptionist, medical assistant, and physician. He saved every penny he could from that to get trained in Botox and thus ProMD Health was born. We are now one of if not the largest purchasers of Botox and Dermal fillers in the Mid-Atlantic and one of the top practice groups in the country.

From day one he had the dream of building a company that brought the flourishing industry of Aesthetic Dermatology to more than just the elite while also finding a way to bring the power back to the physician so that they could own their own practice and share in his dream in light of heavy pressure to join ever growing HMOs or multi-physician owned large practice groups.

But he couldn’t do it alone, he recognized the need for a partner.

4. Start a blogging business ($60K/year)

Chhavi Agarwal from New Delhi, Delhi, India started Mrs Daaku Studio almost 3 years ago, a blogging business.

  • Revenue: $5,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: New Delhi, Delhi, India

I am a licensed attorney in India and right after my master’s in law, I started working with a leading company as a lawyer. I worked there for about two years before I quit my job to become more location independent.

Choose a niche in whatever you start. It is critical for streamlining your efforts and make money.

My job paid me well but I worked 12 hours a day, I was exhausted by the end of each day, spent my weekends sleeping and I almost quit the things I liked to do - for example, sketching, yoga, traveling, etc.

5. Start a maternity store ($60K/year)

Wendy Foster from Portland, Oregon, USA started Mamalates over 13 years ago, a maternity store.

  • Revenue: $5,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Portland, Oregon, USA

I’ve always been an entrepreneur! I have a knack for noticing what is missing that people will want and filling that gap. I had experience working as a therapeutic Pilates instructor for years but I never had to recover from childbirth. As a skier, climber and general movement enthusiast, I was familiar with discomfort, physical pain and enduring miserable situations but nothing prepared and humbled me like the marathon of labor, birth and postpartum.

Just offering 1-3 products as you launch your store is plenty. Even if you don’t have it all figured out. For me, it helps to works backwards from 5 years. Then you can figure out what you need to do today to make the 5 year goal happen.

After a long labor and c-section, I felt like a train wreck! I was recovering from surgery in an unfamiliar body caring for a newborn and not sleeping. I was suffering from The Baby Blues and was completely humbled by my chronic pain, weakness and overall overwhelm. I started to piece myself back together physically by modifying traditional Pilates stretches and exercises and using the foam roller for self myofascial release.

6. Start a health care training business ($180K/year)

Kyle Golding from Oklahoma, USA started Vorttx Training and Testing almost 5 years ago, a health care training business.

  • Revenue: $15,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: Oklahoma, USA

My co-founder Tadd Weese is an operations manager for a long-term medical facility. Part of his job is doing emergency response training for the entire staff of the facility and then proving this training had been done whenever the facility was inspected by state or federal regulators.

A huge part of our journey has been our decision to go slow with a technology product. We could have taken loans, shopped for VC money or even raised “friends and family” funding to go faster but we really didn’t want to be constrained in that way.

This is required by law, but there is no official tool, document, process etc. to execute the training and document. This would be like filing your taxes without the IRS forms.

7. Start a medical app ($1.2M/year)

Shuhan He from California, USA started Qolty almost 4 years ago, a medical app.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 10
  • Location: California, USA

I am an emergency medicine fourth year resident at the Harvard Teaching Hospital Affiliates Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals. Medicine has always been my love, and I am lucky to be able to practice it.

Conduct Science was born out of the evident need for cutting-edge research tools across the board. To achieve reliability across all research, the same standard of equipment should be used by every researcher.

Bootstrapping is a model which means that your company runs entirely on its own revenue. You grow with profits and revenue that your company generates, rather than inflate the value of the company with shareholders. Allowing revenue to drive the company means that you are really focused on the most important thing in business, which is your customer base.

8. Become a nutritionist ($24K/year)

Haley Hughes from Greeley, Colorado, USA started RDRx Nutrition over 7 years ago, a nutritionist.

  • Revenue: $2,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Greeley, Colorado, USA

I have always been a strong-willed, hard-working, and sometimes stubborn person.

I’m definitely “The Achiever” on the enneagram test, so working for myself has been a great change for the most part. I stand up for what I believe in, especially when it comes to patient care.

After graduating with a Master’s degree in dietetics, completing a 2-year-long internship process and taking a huge exam I was so excited to start my career. My dream job (so I thought) was to be an intensive care unit dietitian, because I felt it would be challenging and rewarding.

And for some real world inspiration, give Misty Dupree's story on creating Medical Bag Tags, LLC a read:

My name is Misty Dupree and I own Medical Bag Tags, LLC. I create customizable medical and allergy awareness bag tags for your purses, backpacks, lunch boxes, and more! I desire to help bridge the gap between the medical community and everyday folks by raising awareness of medical and allergy conditions. My Bag Tags can help in emergencies where someone may not be able to speak for themselves.

I started Medical Bag Tags, LLC in October 2018. Shortly after I started my business I was hit with the loss of a child, and within 3 years I managed to also go through the loss of a marriage, endured a year of covid, became a single mom to my 8 beautiful children, and moved cross-country back home where I would have the support I needed to get back on my feet.

During the darkest of dark days, I managed to keep my business afloat, getting small orders here and there. I did manage to pull myself out of the muck and get my LLC and Registered Trademark too. I am now on the other side of the years of pain and am looking forward to putting more time into my business and seeing it grow.

And for some real world inspiration, give Stringtown Animal Hospital's story on creating Stringtown Animal Hospital a read:

I am Dr. Ellie Scott and I am passionate about keeping pets healthy and supporting pet parents. I purchased Stringtown Animal Hospital in 2004 to create a pet care facility that is exceptional at preventing and treating illness.

When I purchased the hospital there were 3 employees and 1 veterinarian, myself. We currently have 5 veterinarians and 23 employees. Our community, Grove City, is amazing. My entire team works tirelessly to accommodate the needs of our pet families and make every experience positive. This past year of COVID has been challenging for everyone. But my team has excelled. They embraced the changes of curbside care and keeping themselves healthy. They truly understand the importance of pets in the lives of our pet families. They go above and beyond, every day. There is no doubt they are heroes.

Hello Starter Story! It is such a pleasure to do this interview! I’m Brent Bottelsen, one of the Partners in Type2Diet.

To give an idea of the staggering numbers, as of 2017, 34.2 million people in the United States have diabetes (10.5% of the US population), and 88 million people aged 28 and older have prediabetes. This is 34.5% of the adult US population. Today, we have helped thousands of people across the country lower their blood sugar, increase their energy, and put their diabetes in check.
