San Francisco-based Forward Healthcare is making changes to how patients receive healthcare by incorporating strategies and models gleaned from the tech world. The company gives its patients access to impressive technological systems like "AI software, wearable sensors, 24/7 mobile access and more in order to enable a data-driven and preventative approach to healthcare," according to Adrian Aoun, its CEO.
Forward Healthcare is comfortable with its tech business model, which includes a monthly subscription fee rather than insurance payments, thanks to Aoun's background. Before founding Forward Healthcare, Aoun was the leader of a division at Alphabet (the parent company of Google.) Other Forward brass include other Google employees and a former Uber executive.
Thanks to the efficiency of the tech used by forward, the company is able to offer unlimited appointments with and 24/7 mobile access to doctors.
