CNBC highlights a particular problem, which is that the three companies worked on their solutions separately, which could have made the whole joint venture moot in the first place.
In a statement to CNBCsaid a spokesperson for Haven: “The Haven team has made good progress exploring a wide range of healthcare solutions, as well as experimenting with new ways to make primary care easier to access, insurance benefits easier to understand and use, and prescription drugs more affordable. . “
Still, that doesn’t necessarily mean companies are done with healthcare. Amazon, for example, recently launched Amazon Pharmacy, a new two-day prescription drug delivery service for Prime users. It is based on PillPack, a company acquired by Amazon in 2018. Primary users will also be able to purchase over-the-counter products at significant discounts. Non-Prime users can use the service as well, but will be subject to a five-day delivery window or a $ 5.99 fee for expedited shipping.
The three companies also said they will continue to collaborate informally on health projects. A spokesperson said the trio would use their collective knowledge to “design tailor-made programs to meet the specific needs of our employee populations and sites.”
