Amazon will offer its health program, Amazon Care, to other companies and its employees based outside of Washington state, the company announced today.
The platform includes virtual meetings with doctors through the app and in-person care at a patient’s home. It can dispatch nurses to someone’s door to draw blood or perform a physical examination. Amazon launched the program for its Seattle-area employees in 2019.
Now, it’s opening the program to other companies based in Washington state. This summer, it will make the virtual piece of Amazon Care available to other companies and Amazon employees anywhere in the United States. It will also eventually open the in-person care in Washington, DC, Baltimore, and other cities.
