Forward brings an entirely new perspective to primary care, changing the way people think about and manage their health. In this series, we’ll introduce you to our technology, explain our care philosophy, and talk to the inspiring doctors, nurses, and members who are helping us improve the system.
It’s 2am and you’re losing sleep over what-ifs. You feel fine, but there is that one thing that runs in your family. Or maybe you don’t feel fine. Was it the sushi? Or that bug that took down half the office last week?
For everything else in your life, there seems to be an app with access and answers — but somehow, when your health is on the line, you’re on your own.
We’re here to change all that. We started Forward because we thought it was about time that someone took all this sweet tech we’ve come to rely on and applied it to the most important thing: your health.
We’ve taken the painfully dated doctor’s office and redesigned the experience to create a system focused on keeping you well. One that answers to you, not the insurance companies. We don’t just treat your symptoms, we treat you as a whole person.
It all starts in your Forward app, which connects you to your private doctor and care team, 24/7. Whether you’re at home in the middle of the night, or hiking to an ancient ruin in Jordan — true story — we can get you meds, answer your questions, schedule an appointment, or figure out the next right move.
When you need to come to one of our locations, you’ll notice that we don’t have a waiting room. That’s because there’s no waiting. Our tech enables us to track and centralize your medical records to spare you the boring, redundant paperwork.
Within the first 20 minutes, your doctor will walk you through the results of your body scan and blood work (our lab is on-site) on a giant screen in your exam room. We get right into real talk about your kidney and liver function, digestive health, fertility, and any indicators of heart disease. We can also look deeper with genetic screening to see if you’re at risk for certain types of cancer, and take action off of that information.
Your doctor will also tune in to the things we can’t learn from tests — stress levels, relationships, job demands, and how you’re feeling mentally and emotionally. A deeper view helps us identify meaningful patterns, surface risk factors, and track progress you’re making on your care plan.
Yes, your own personalized plan! We think about health as something to continuously improve. The same way you may think about your career, fitness, or savings goals. Whatever it is you want to work on, we’ll collaborate with you, provide insight and help you reach your goals.
Our grandparents were right: Without good health, we don’t have anything. Fortunately, we’re standing shoulder to shoulder with you, focused on providing the best care possible. We’re always ready when you are.
