Carbon Health is launching an innovative new helathcare app that is designed to offer patients the opportunity to access every step of the healthcare process right from their smartphones. The app allows patients to consult with general practitioners, schedule appointments with specialists and organize their prescription drug needs. Users start by uploading their health insurance information and filling out informational forms before selecting a doctor to begin their treatment process.

While there are many healthcare apps out there, what makes Carbon Health's offering unique is the fact that the app is being accompanied by the launch of a physical clinic location in San Francisco. While not every course of treatment will be carried out in the Carbon Health clinic, the connection between app and physical clinic helps streamline a significant proportion of patient procedures.
