Amazon’s app-based healthcare service for employees, Amazon Care, will soon launch throughout the country, Insider reported this past Friday.
Although it is currently only available to the tech giant’s Washington-based employees, sources told the outlet that Amazon Care is gearing up to offer the service for the rest of its U.S. workers.
It will also invite employers to use the service as well, said Insider. Amazon Care declined Healthcare IT News‘ requests for comment.
WHY IT MATTERS
Currently, the Amazon Care app connects Washington-based employees to providers for a wide range of primary and urgent care services. Those in the greater Seattle area can also have a nurse dispatched to them for follow-up treatment such as blood draws.
