Amazon is partnering with One Medical, a subscription-based primary care provider, as it continues to expand its healthcare offerings. One Medical is known for its convenient and technology-enabled approach to primary care, which includes virtual visits, online scheduling, and access to a nationwide network of doctors. The partnership with Amazon will allow One Medical to tap into Amazon’s vast customer base and offer its services to more people.
Under the partnership, Amazon customers will have access to One Medical’s virtual care services, which include video and chat appointments with One Medical’s physicians, as well as a network of on-demand urgent care providers. Amazon Prime members will also receive discounted rates on One Medical’s annual membership fees, which normally cost $199 per year.
The partnership with One Medical is just the latest move by Amazon in the healthcare space. In 2018, the company acquired online pharmacy PillPack for $1 billion and has since launched Amazon Pharmacy, a service that allows customers to order prescription medications online. Amazon has also launched a line of over-the-counter health products under its Basic Care brand, and has been exploring ways to use its voice-activated assistant, Alexa, to help customers manage their healthcare.
One Medical, which was founded in 2007 and is based in San Francisco, has grown rapidly in recent years and now has more than 600,000 members in 22 markets across the US. The company has raised more than $530 million in funding to date, and is valued at $7.7 billion. With its focus on providing high-quality, accessible, and tech-enabled primary care, One Medical is well positioned to benefit from Amazon’s massive reach and resources.
