Apple is creating its own medical clinics for its employees and their families in Santa Clara County, CA, reported CNBC.
The primary care clinics, called AC Wellness, aim to deliver “compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population,” according to the website.
“Apple has been working on healthcare innovation—first with their apps, including HealthKit, geared toward tracking and monitoring health vitals to help achieve better health outcomes,” says Deirdre Ruttle, vice president, strategy for InstaMed, a payments network that connects providers, payers, and consumers on one platform. “The thing that jumps out to me on the AC Wellness website, is the repeated reference to patient experience. We’ve been seeing trends in consumers demanding better healthcare experiences both on the clinical and administrative sides.”
