Ratings and Reviews
This is a review of the APP, not the actual service provided by Forward.
I think the app has a long way to go, especially since they’re marketing themselves as a tech heavy doctors office.
All of your data is more or less organized in a scrollable layout. Convenient, but there doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason as to how it’s organized. You’ve got my vaccines history, then my lipid panel then my flu shot. It would make sense to segment things - have a lab section. have an immunizations section, etc...
Scheduling is labor intensive. One Medical has a great scheduling system and I think Forward should adopt from them. With OM, you select the reason for your visit, then you can see availability to their schedule and pick out what works best for you. With Forward, you have to chat on... and go back and forth with scheduling. Not very efficient.
I do like that you can track trends in your data like weight and blood pressure. I also really appreciate that they collect my previous medical records from past providers and I actually get visibility to it! Very empowering!
No glitches, no bugs that I’ve noticed. App is pleasant to look at.
Ugly, Bad Concept
Ugly, non-functional app. Freezes a lot, crashes. So many bugs. You’d think paying a team of enginerds 170k a year, they’d be able to craft something simple and elegant. Instead, develop an app based on “ux research” (which usually involves asking questions to complete morons to guide your design process).. As a designer that wasn’t just trained to be a photoshop slave, I find most apps to be ugly, and poorly function for the needs of the user—this one takes the cake.
In addition, the whole concept of this service is so San Francisco. Pay a monthly fee and have all this shiny data in your face, with the additional added entitlement to now see a doctor every single day if you wanted, for whatever, because they don’t charge per visit. Everything about the tech world in this city that is wrong is clearly highlighted with an app like this that further exacerbates the American ideal that we deserve every service person to bow to our whim, serve us when needed, and answer questions for us. Entitlement in app format for the upper-class, while people haven’t crafted an affordable app for people with little access to health insurance, mental health help, or more.
Plus, the guy that owns this cr-app is sitting back making bank off of a subscription fee based health service. Who would even support this?!
The app is annoying and outdated
I’ve been a member for over a year. I’ve gone to get my baseline and occasional follow ups where I check my vitals about 7-8 times in total. I realized that paying a costly membership fee for not a lot gained was stupid of me. NYU Langone has a better app with more functionality and it’s free.
Also if you want to cancel, you can’t do it via the app. You have to message someone and they try to keep you as a member by saying they will process the cancellation but taking days to do so and will offer you deals to keep you on. They should have simply lowered their fees in the first place to retain their membership.
The app isn’t great and it’s hard to read their graphs so it’s difficult to tell - is my cholesterol reading at 190 or 200? Also after you make an appointment, the app will still tell you to make an appointment after you do so which is irritating bc you think the notification is for something your doctor is telling you.
