Amazon merger with PillPack gives marketplace medication delivery network

No primary category set

Amazon announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire PillPack.

PillPack is a pharmacy designed to provide the best possible customer experience in the US for people who take multiple daily prescriptions. PillPack delivers medications in pre-sorted dose packaging, coordinates refills and renewals, and makes sure shipments are sent on time.

Amazon already launched their own range of pharmacy products in the US, under the brand ‘Basic Care‘. At the time we wrote “Currently Amazon are selling over the counter medications, but that doesn’t mean they won’t attack the prescription business in the near future.” It would appear that that time has come.

“PillPack’s visionary team has a combination of deep pharmacy experience and a focus on technology. 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. We’re excited to see what we can do together on behalf of customers over time.”
– Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO Worldwide Consumer

“PillPack makes it simple for any customer to take the right medication at the right time, and feel healthier. Together with Amazon, we are eager to continue working with partners across the healthcare industry to help people throughout the U.S. who can benefit from a better pharmacy experience.”
– TJ Parker, co-founder and CEO of PillPack
