Late last year the healthcare community was hit by two astounding developments. CVS was making plans to purchase Aetna, the health insurance firm, while Amazon had made strides in the pharmaceutical industry with a number of pharmacy licenses in their possession. The decision by CVS was influenced by the potential threat that Amazon posed given their ability to turn markets upside down.
The two companies were evidently trying to gain control of the healthcare sector. It was during the same period that CVS offered to deliver prescription drugs to consumers across the country. The firm’s plan was to put together a comprehensive health care service package for its clients. The package would include insurance services, medical check-ups along with pharmaceutical services. Amazon, on the other hand, was simply looking to add pharmaceutical products to its already sophisticated store.
The end result would be a win for the consumer. With everything under one roof, a patient can conveniently gain access to services on their own terms. Health services would also be made accessible to more people leading to healthier and better lives. The two firms would inevitably support the development of the health tech space.
Among the contributors to the development of the healthcare sector is Drew Madden. He has invested steadily in Healthcare IT. His illustrious career involved a five-year stint as the president of Nordic Consulting Partners.
