Amazon office building The online giant is tapping into the increasing popularity of — and demand for — telemedicine services and virtual care in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The past three months have been a whirlwind of disruption for the health care industry. Haven — the much-touted employer-sponsored health care joint venture that paired Amazon with JPMorgan Chase and Berkshire Hathaway — disbanded in January. Amazon is now going it alone, a major indicator that the vast online company has no plans to simply ease into the marketplace with its Amazon Care program.

On March 17, Amazon Care expanded its efforts from providing virtual and in-home health care services to only Amazon employees to now offering them to all employers throughout Amazon’s home state of Washington. Plans call for taking its virtual care nationwide this summer, and in-person health care services will be rolled out in such major cities as Washington, D.C., and Baltimore soon, as well.
