Amazon reportedly in pilot for new kind of health products delivery program

BY CSA Staff

Amazon wants to ship medical supplies to patients before they are even discharged from the hospital.

According to CNBC, the online giant, a Seattle-based digital prescribing and analytics start-up called Xealth, and at least two hospital networks are considering a pilot project that would let doctors ship discounted bundles of medical products to their hospitalized patients before they’re sent home.

The project would provide discounted medical supplies and other goods via Amazon Prime. Those who do not have a Prime membership or do not want to use Amazon would still be able to access the pilot via other e-commerce providers, according to the report.

While the pilot is still under review, it is expected to kick off in a matter of months, CNBC reported.
