Startup Wants to Be Apple Store for HealthCare
A new medical startup wants to be the Apple store for health care. Forward, a company founded by former Google and Uber executives has designed the doctor’s office of the future. On Tuesday, Jan. 17, Forward opened its first state-of-the-art medical facility in downtown San Francisco.
The facility spans over a 3,000 square foot office space. It includes six exam rooms along with the latest medical instruments and an on-site lab for testing. The service, which costs $149 per month, doesn’t bill insurance, meaning there are no copays or unexpected bills.
Forward CEO Adrian Aoun says, “We want proactive preventive health care that is data-driven, but do it at low prices.” Currently, Forward has already signed up a few hundred patients, 15 percent of them are from underserved communities.
