You’ve likely heard that social distancing is currently the best way to defend against COVID-19, and this strategy is saving lives. Before the coronavirus dominated the news cycle — and our everyday lives — “social distancing” was a concept that seemed like it came straight from a science-fiction movie. This concept isn’t new, though. Social distancing is simply taking specific actions and lifestyle adjustments to prevent getting sick. Before 2020, we would have called this “preventive care”. At Forward, we have always believed in the value of preventive care, and we’re committed to providing this care right now, when it is more important than ever.
You’ll start your membership at Forward with a Baseline with one of our top-rated doctors. Together you’ll review your vitals, lifestyle, and family history to put together a preventive plan that is personalized to you. Data visualization is an integral part of every Forward visit, and the Forward Smart Screen, an interactive display, empowers our doctors to focus on you while collaborating on health decisions based on a deep level of transparency and understanding. This visualization is important whether you’re at one of our offices around the country or you’re staying safe at home. For our virtual visits to achieve the same level of interaction and information, we go beyond a traditional video call, bringing the Forward Smart Screen to your home and onto your personal device to put your health data and progress directly in your hands.
To further personalize your health plan, Forward completes a genetic analysis. Your doctor will review your genetic information and provide tailored plans based on your risks of developing certain conditions, medication sensitivities, and opportunities for health optimization. You will leave the visit with a proactive wellness plan specific to your needs. As genetic research evolves rapidly, Forward will update you on what matters most and how these changes can improve your health. Genetic testing is included in the Forward membership and is entirely optional.
This approach is only possible with our membership model. We encourage our members to come in when they are healthy for check-ups, goal tracking and preventive visits. Comprehensive labs, advanced medical technology including biometric monitoring, and unlimited access to our care team — virtual and in-person — are included, so our doctors can have a complete picture of your health. No matter your employment or insurance status, you’ll receive the same high-quality care for the same flat fee each month. You’ll never pay a copay or receive an unexpected bill.
All Forward members can access our COVID-19 Care Program, which includes in-app assessments, up-to-date guidance, and 24/7 access to your Care Team. The program provides COVID prevention strategies, the latest treatments, and vaccinations. We can help you assess your risk so that you and your family can take steps to mitigate it and get through the pandemic with good health.
