Amazon launches a virtual medical clinic for employees

October 8, 2019

Amazon has launched a virtual health clinic with in-home follow-ups for employees in Seattle, according to an article on the CNBC website.

The clinic offers a combination of telemedicine and in-person services. Amazon will also prescribe medications via Amazon Care within a few hours, or offer a way for employees to pick them up at a preferred pharmacy.

Its virtual offering includes an “in-app video visit with a doctor, nurse practitioner, or registered nurse ... for advice, answers, diagnosis, treatment or referrals,” according to the Amazon web site. 

Employees can see a health provider via a mobile app or website and they can text a nurse on any health topic. If an employee needs follow-up care, Amazon Care can arrange for a nurse to pay a visit at home.
