The launch of Amazon medicine store is not unexpected as it has taken a number of steps to enter the healthcare market. It had bought pharmaceutical delivery startup PillPack for just under $1 billion in 2018.

The company said that PillPack is part of Amazon medicine store and remains a “distinct service” for customers managing multiple daily medications for chronic conditions.

Customers who take multiple daily medications and prefer pre-sorted dose packaging should continue to choose PillPack, Amazon said.
