Apple is taking a serious look at getting into healthcare.
According to a CNBC report, the tech company came very close recently to buying medical clinic startup Crossover Health. Crossover highlights its digital features, such as mobile apps that allow people to make same-day appointments. That makes plenty of sense for the tech giant to latch onto.
Apple also reportedly approached the nationwide primary medical care group One Medical, which makes extensive use of mobile apps. CNBC reports Apple's health team has been exploring expansion into primary healthcare for the past year. Tech industry analysts say it could be a logical move for the company whose Apple Watch has features that allow doctors to monitor a patient's health.
Just think, in a few years we may be able to get a diagnosis using our wrists!
