Amazon and its Alexa team have created a voice-assistant division called “health and wellness”. Their goal is to target diabetes management.
The digital-health capabilities will also require working through regulations and data privacy requirements laid out by HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), according to people familiar with the matter, CNBC said.
Having these right compliance and regulatory licenses in place would give Alexa the go to share sensitive health data with medical professionals and patients.
already, Amazon is widely believed to be contemplating a pharmaceutical push, although the company itself has not commented on its interest. Amazon’s nearly $14 billion acquisition of Whole Foods, announced in June and closed just over two months later, sparked speculation that the grocery chain might soon house pharmacy locations.
