Episode 31 On Medical Startups

01:00 We chat about Bo's first visit to Forward, an innovative clinic just started in San Francisco. It tries to create a futuristic hospital experience with new machines and big data. It's similar to another enterprise, One Medical. We compared the two approaches on pros and cons.

16:00 Forward gets my attention because it keeps track of health data of their members and offers 24/7 medical consulting. I feel the data-driven approach is going to change the future clinical experiences, so we dive a bit deeper into AI, deep learning, machine learning and other buzz words.

28:00 We discuss the medical startup landscape. Forward is one of the approaches, others include the online marketplace, DNA testing, etc. But whatever the landscape, the trust seems the main issue that most people care about in this the medical startups.
