Amazon is more prevalent in the medication industry. Likewise, their marketing efforts show that. They formed “Haven” with JPMorgan and Berkshire-Hathaway, which lowers employer healthcare costs.
Above all, PillPack is now owned by Amazon, taking business away from a good portion of pharmacies. PillPack helps patients that take a variety of drugs and need help organizing them. In addition, the service delivers patient-oriented packages with sorted medicine.
Jumping into the pharmaceutical game is just the first step for Amazon. If their marketing efforts with PillPack take off, Amazon will start delivering other medical supplies as well. This will prove to be tough for other traditional companies to compete with.
