It turns out, Amazon doesn’t need a fancy joint venture or help from anyone else to disrupt the health care industry. It’s doing just fine all on its own.

Amazon Care launched a year and a half ago to provide virtual and in-home health care services for Amazon employees in the Seattle area. Starting today, the company will expand the service to employers throughout the state of Washington, and this summer, open its virtual care offering up to employers in all 50 states. In-person health care services will be rolled out to major cities such as Washington, D.C. and Baltimore in the coming months, as well.
