Forward is redesigning the way we deliver healthcare using all the technologies healthcare has neglected: sensors, mobile, and AI.

It's no secret that healthcare in the U.S. and across the world has major challenges. For us, the problem is personal. Each of our founders experienced a close friend or family member not getting the care they should have. Those experiences inspired us to create Forward: a new healthcare system built from scratch to serve the needs of people, rather than those of the legacy healthcare industry. Our mission is to combine the best aspects of physicians – judgment, empathy, and experience - with the best aspects of technology – scalability, cost and convenience – to bring higher quality, lower cost healthcare to as many people as possible.

We were founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), Joe Lonsdale (Palantir Founder), Joshua Kushner (Oscar co-Founder) and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).

Forward is a full-stack company: doctors, designers and engineers work together to build their own software and hardware, including our own electronic health records system. This allows us to innovate faster and prevents us from being held back by legacy systems. We're constantly improving by adding new services and capabilities that are only possible because we rebuilt the entire system from scratch.

Our mission is to change the way people think about and manage their health.
