There has been a pair of reports that have recently had a massive impact on the healthcare community. The first one is the fact that pharmacy giant CVS is seriously considering purchasing the major health insurance firm Aetna. The second is the fact that Amazon has acquired licenses to distribute a number of types of healthcare related equipment and appears to soon be on the brink of acquiring full pharmacy licenses in multiple states that will allow the company to fill prescriptions. The important part here is that the two reports are clearly connected. With Amazon trying to get into the pharmacy business, it is no wonder that a company like CVS is now diversifying and getting into the health insurance business.
These major pieces of healthcare news are going on at the same time that the industry is starting to seriously consider the fact that that United States spends three times as much money on health care as other first world nations and yet the outcomes are not superior to the rest of the developed world. This issue raises numerous questions but also presents numerous opportunities, particularly in the area of healthcare IT. This bit of information taken along with the information regarding CVS and Amazon clearly points to a future where the health care field becomes more immersed in IT.
