Amazon is not only broadening its horizon but also spreading its wings towards betterment. After starting its service of (OTC: Over The Counter) drugs in 2019. It is plausibly the biggest step in the healthcare business by Amazon. This push opened gates to new revenue-making chances. On the surface its a healthcare service and not a selling medicine items kinda business (but it is! pun intended).
Amazon Pharmacy service, a genius idea
The Amazon online pharmacy delivery service is a genius idea especially amid the Covid-19 pandemic. When people are vulnerable to fight against this virus and other health issues, seeking remote care and using online channels for their shopping. Whether it’s healthcare or basic needs.
Amazon proceeded with development as an all-inclusive resource for medication and health. As per the consumers’ shopping for medicines and looking for goods goes yardarm to yardarm. So, what’s more, obviously over many years, numerous independent medicine stores have moved more into turning out to resemble stores selling food, while those selling food additionally have pharmacy counters. In all these hotch-potch now we can say Amazon is a tough contender.
How Amazon is dealing with emerging problems?
‘With great fame comes great responsibility’ and Amazon is effectively dealing with all of it. Some consumers asked out of curiosity about the intelligence of giving wellbeing information to a tech company. Here is what Amazon Pharmacy’s ‘vice-president TJ Parker’ has to say, “We work hard behind the scenes to handle complications seamlessly so anyone who needs a prescription can understand their options, place their order at the lowest available price and have their medication delivered quickly.”
As Amazon is not only restricted to the health department only, besides Amazon’s Pharmacy service, it has other branches too. If they further start giving away gym equipment, products and other services, it will become a difficult task to manage everything.
Giving an interview to BBC, the previous executive of Amazon James Thompson said that “When those types of things start to happen, I believe it will become much more apparent that we have a major major data problem here.”
However, we appreciate Amazon and wish them luck ahead!
