With emerging technologies and new ideas on how to use technologies to improve lifestyle IT companies nowadays are not limited to only hardware and software implementations anymore. This year some hi-tech industries have planned collaboration of IT with healthcare and Apple is one of them.
First it started with some health care apps of Apple which gained much popularity from its users. Now Apple is planning to launch medical centers exclusively for their employees. AC wellness network is an independent venture which is going to provide high quality medical care starting this year.
There will be multiple centers so all employees can benefit from the medical facilities. Of course being under Apple’s supervision AC wellness is going to be tech-savvy experience for the patients as well as the doctors. AC wellness has already started recruiting medical coach, physicians and nurse practitioners to ensure an early service which is expected to start in spring 2018.
The website of AC wellness is already live and it’s getting worldwide attention. It’s surely going to work as incentive to promote healthcare in many more IT industries in near future. Currently more information on this endeavor is available on “LinkedIn”, “Glassdoor” and “Indeed”.
A unique experience
What’s special in this venture is that Apple has confirmed that this health care facility is going to be a unique and compassionate experience between the patients and employees of AC wellness. Taking different steps from traditional approach is risky for sure but Apple has always been a risk taker and also a winner so we are not expecting any less from AC wellness.
Apple has also been researching medical advances. There main goal is to test and explore the medical services.
In case if Apple want to enlarge the reach of the medical facilities beyond its employees their unique ideas are going to be very effective if they succeed in providing health care perks to the employees as expected.
The AC wellness clinics are going to be placed near Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
But Apple is not first
Starting this year Amazon has announced their plan to launch health care company with collaboration of JPMorgan Chase and Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. Being the biggest e-commerce platform Amazon has now shown interest in health care industry to help economic burden from its employees and their families.
Many tech companies are going to tech inspiration from Amazon’s approach in health care venture in upcoming years. Apple and Amazon are going to bring massive change in IT industry.
Since health care cost is very expensive in the US, these tech companies are going to improve the general health of American population very soon.
Following Amazon’s and Apple’s footsteps we hope soon more tech industries will choose to contribute to health care industry. Taking different steps to perform medical treatments to patients is going to develop analysis and research of traditional treatments all over the world, so it’s not too late to picture a better world with less sickness and more productivity. Also it can be assumed that soon the tech companies are going to broaden their reach to different industries to make earth a better place to live.
