Apple’s health team aims to purchase the Crossover Health clinic, in order to expand its medical care services
Representatives from Apple have announced the company’s intention of expanding its medical activity by buying a start-up called Crossover Health, specializing in providing medical and wellness services on Apple and Facebook campuses, via appointments through dedicated app.
In addition, Crossover also has work points in New York and the Bay Area.
On the other hand, rumors say that Apple also approached the primary care group One Medical. None of the companies’ representatives have commented on the details of the deals so far.
As experts forecast, Apple will use its more than 300 stores as sales channels for its future primary care investments, this way building up its own retail network. The company is expected to boost its health care segment in the ears to come, while the opportunity is seen as a business platform, rather than a philanthropic project, as the CEO of the company also highlighted.
Moreover, Apple collaborates with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on improving the drug regulatory process by developing new software. Partnerships with Stanford scientists and other collaborations are also on set for the company.
