Healthcare is a critical part of many people’s lives. Now, one expert wants to help healthcare professionals and healthcare consumers better navigate the world of medicine. That expert, Drew Madden, is using his information technology expertise to help the healthcare world face the future.
Right now, the world of healthcare is at a crossroads. According to a recent article, some of the largest companies in the world are taking drastic steps to position themselves for the future of healthcare. one of those companies is retail pharmacy giant CVS who recently acquired insurance behemoth Atena. That deal, worth about $69 billion dollars, was made to preemptively challenge another possible new player in the healthcare world – Amazon.
Amazon is the largest e-commerce company in the world. A company so powerful that they have been able to single handily turn the grocery world upside down with their acquisition of Whole Foods. Recently, the company has acquired a license to sell prescription medicine in several states. Some financial analysists are speculating that Amazon will try to disrupt the prescription drug business, striking fear into pharmacy retail companies across the country.
Prescription medicine is considered one of the least efficient parts of the healthcare industry. Many prescription drugs are still too expensive and Amazon is seen as one of the few companies with the pricing power to undercut every other retail pharmacy company. Amazon could radically change the healthcare industry but, only time will tell.
