The latest iteration of health care is Forward. The spawn of Google and Uber executives, Forward wants to make the doctor’s office look like the Apple Store. Offices come fully furnished with ambient lighting, a genius bar and an orgasmitron-like contraption for vitals. You can get the details here on Forbes.
While the space pictured above may play well to the media, it somehow seems inconsistent with the human reality. The interface with diseased humans isn’t anything like what’s pictured here.
I like the Apple store for iPads. Not for people. Humans are messy. They ooze bacteria, no two are alike and they don’t follow the rules. Playing genius to 3 cubic feet of meat is nothing like rebooting an iPad.
I’m not suggesting that there aren’t elements of the future in Forward, I’m just suggesting that humans spaces for health care have to account for the fact that I’m nothing like an iPod.
