Understanding Amazon’s Healthcare Disruption
Amazon continues to invest heavily in the US healthcare market, deepening relationships with Express Scripts and others. By expanding their data cloud services, Amazon can quickly gain insights into the market.
The Latest Highlights
- Amazon is using partnerships to quickly penetrate the prescription and primary care market in the US.
- Amazon is not limiting their vision to the US – they have expanded into the United Kingdom with pharmacy trademarking while collecting and managing the National Health Service data through a propriety data lake.
- Amazon defines primary care today as physician office visits, telehealth, physical therapy centers, pharmacies and home delivery.
- Amazon Care is their latest foray- it provides telehealth visits for cash paying consumers as well as working with health insurers.
