Amazon is acquiring online pharmacy PillPack, marking its latest move into the healthcare industry and bringing it one step closer to helping 100 million Prime members manage their health.
The release announcing the deal was sparse on details. Amazon declined to comment.
PillPack is a pharmacy that focuses on consumers who take multiple daily prescriptions. According to its website, it sorts medications by dose and delivers them in pre-sorted packaging. It also coordinates refills and renewals.
“PillPack is meaningfully improving its customers’ lives and we want to help them continue making it easy for people to save time, simplify their lives and feel healthier,” said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO of worldwide consumer, in a statement.
