Our Mission
A world where everyone has access to the best medical care available

Nate Favini

Why We Exist

Inadequate, expensive healthcare is a global crisis. We pay more and get less every year. We’re on a mission to radically improve how healthcare works in order to lower costs, improve results and make quality care available to those who need it most. 

Fixing healthcare isn't hard. It just requires Forward thinking.

An Entirely Different Approach

Instead of chipping away at the edges and playing along with how things work today, we started from scratch to build a system that’s completely different.



Limited Interaction

Your body changes by the minute, but healthcare is still based on annual checkups and endless waits for appointments.


Continuous Partnership

Thanks to sites across the country, a 24x7 Care Team, and our app, you and your doctor are always in sync and working toward results.



Surprise Bills

We’re paying more for insurance, and getting less. Confusing coverage and huge deductibles mean the cost of a doctor’s visit is a roll of the dice.


One Flat Fee

Our business model is built for you, not insurance companies. So whether you have insurance or not, you receive high-quality care for one flat fee.



Outdated Tools

You have a smartwatch, but your hospital still uses a fax machine. Healthcare is decades behind advances in software and hardware.


Cutting-Edge Technology

Our engineers and doctors build tools together. Real-time lab results, genetic testing, and connected health sensors unlock deep insights.




Hospitals bill for services, not for results. So your care becomes a perpetual whack-a-mole instead of fixing underlying issues.



We don’t charge for service, so all we care about is results. That means a clear focus on long-term health and early detection.

Our Impact

We’re on a journey to make quality care available to those who need it most. We’re proud to have accomplished a lot in the last five years — and we’re just getting started.
