Amazon Acquires Medical Technology Startup

Amazon launched Amazon Care as a pilot program for its Seattle employees in September. The program offers a virtual medical clinic with in-home follow up for its employees. In October, Amazon announced its purchase of Health Navigator, a medical technology startup providing online symptom checking and triage tools to companies who want to route their employees to the appropriate care. The acquisition of Health Navigator, founded in 2014, follows Amazon’s 2018 purchase of PillPack for $753 million.
