Amazon, HIPAA, and Privacy

A Healthcare Blog Post

A Clinical Decision Support Mechanism Blog Post

Earlier this year, I wrote about Amazon stepping into the healthcare industry. (Visit here if you would like to catch up.) As of this week, Amazon has officially taken the next step into the healthcare industry, creating Amazon Care for their Seattle based employees.


This new healthcare plan will offer Amazon employees four unique benefits.
  • Video Care is a visit to a third-party physician from Oasis Medical through the use of the Amazon Care app.
  • Mobile Care, an in-person visit from a nurse who can conduct any physical testing you may need.
  • Care Chat is an in-app chat session with a nurse.
  • Care Couriers, who will deliver prescribed medications to your home or office.
While this may seem similar to the virtual physician programs many insurance companies now offer to their customers, (Amazon is not the only tech giant to launch its own healthcare programs for its employees - Apple owns AC Wellness; it is the only one that owns the servers), there is one startling difference, privacy. This unique healthcare system is owned and operated by the employer. Therefore the employees' healthcare records are stored in servers owned by the employer.
