Apple had big dreams for health care over the past several years, but those ambitions have reached a standstillAccording to a Wednesday report in The Wall Street Journal. People familiar with the matter told the publication that many of the company’s plans to shake up healthcare have had a difficult time. The journal also reviewed documents related to these challenges.
The iPhone maker had reportedly planned to offer its primary care medical service with doctors working in its clinics. To try out the plan, Apple took over clinics designed for employees and formed teams with physicians, engineers, and product designers, among others. But those goals have stalled as the company has reportedly shifted its focus to selling devices like the Apple Watch.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
