Healthcare is always changing at a rapid rate and businesses are working to ensure that they’re keeping up with the latest trends. Two reports from Amazon and CVS have taken the healthcare world by surprise. Amazon revealed that they will be obtaining their pharmacy license and taking one step further into the healthcare market. Amazon is a worldwide online company that provides every product imaginable and will now be offering prescription services in the near future. Aside from the Amazon news, CVS announced that they will be partnering with Aetna, which is a nationwide insurance company. Both companies are working to better the healthcare industry in several ways.
CVS is taking the initiative and offering different options for their customers. They recently announced that they will be offering a nationwide plan that is a guaranteed next-day delivery for all prescriptions. In an attempt to compete with Amazon and other prescription drug companies, they look to enhance their business structure. CVS is also looking to combine different services within their company which would include insurance services and routine care services. CVS hopes to be able to provide services for the patient from the very beginning all the way to end. It would start with prescription drug services and end with a comprehensive routine visit. Their MinuteClinic operations program would be able to assist all patients within their care and database. This would enable them to gain a creative and competitive edge over other healthcare companies.
