A recent article published by Venture Beat explores the role that two major giants are playing in transforming the healthcare industry. In light of CVS’s announcement that it is looking into purchasing Aetna and Amazon making the leap into pharmacy retail opportunities, consumers could see big changes on the horizon as to how the access prescriptions. Many are speculating that the decision by CVS to look into partnerships with major insurance companies is a defensive maneuver against Amazon potentially becoming a formidable player in the prescription retail market. Given that Amazon has already purchased Whole Foods, it certainly has the means to transition into becoming a major prescription retailer. These huge developments in the healthcare field mean that patients may be able to access all of their healthcare needs in more of a centralized location.
