Description: The article below mainly shows us some necessary information about how the forward health doctor’s office will be in the future.
We’re a health membership building the primary care physician from the ground up and one of the important things we try and do is to make the user experience much better, so when you come to Ford, you’ve already signed up in the app and made an appointment, the doctor knows who you are when you walk in, you’re going to come over here to the iPad.
You sign yourself in and what we show you is that your playlist for the day, what the doctors going to be working with you about, what labs you’re going to do, what blood work you might have done, so we try to make it very easy and very simple as far as what’s going to happen, so we started forward, because Adrian who’s our CEO and one of our co-founders, he was working at Google, he was running a special projects team at Google.
One of his close relatives had a pretty major health scare and had a heart attack,so Adrian was spending time in the hospital and saw firsthand what a terrible experience it is ,how everything in the healthcare system is set up to be reactive instead of proactive, so we wait for something terrible to happen and then we try to fix it, but no one was trying to think about how we can make it better as an experience, how to use technology to catch things before they occurred.
We basically wanted to see if you took consumer tech people and pointed what they know at healthcare, what could you build, first thing is that you need two fingers right here, keep it there and look up, so what we’re doing is replacing the nurse, coming in and doing a kind of basic things.
You would take annoying, this is just happening, it could be as long ways high temperature all that normal stuff, you normally get from a nurse, do I get all of this data to my half are including all plans all tests, everything’s in the app, we try and be mobile first than the app, you can talk to your doctor, you can end up creating schedules, you can even the coordinating discussions which will do any behalf,so we started about a year ago and we actually had a warehouse and set up essentially a test location where we were rapidly prototyping working with early members and founding members hired our first couple of physicians and started developing.
The software iterating on it making better figuring out what works and what didn’t and then we launched this first actual live location, the doctor collaborates with your goals,what’s been happening in your lab.
All the information that you were looking at whether it’s on the body scanner or working with the blood labs, all this information will show up here as the doctors are talking to you, you’re talking to him or her all this information Sears.
It’s very clear to figure out what the blood pressure heart rate,all these things from me whether it’s genetic testing blood testing, all these things show up here, so it’s by Ranger gold nice throw what’s the next 3d looking happy life and part of that not only is having the best doctors but also the best tech part of the best tech.
It’s stuff like this, we use this little thing, if we’re drawing blood and we’re not going to draw your blood,I need this brofist sleeve here, so normally you don’t want to get poked with needles all the time, it’s now experienced, but with this, we can use near for red light and see exactly where your veins are throughout your body, so at that point there’s not going to be multiple poking, it’s just a little bit of tech to make the experience that much better, we want to bring better health care to everyone, so that means all the major cities whether it’s New York LA and fourth, but ultimately, it’s offering better health care to as many people as possible
