One day - Amazon.com Inc. has sold virtual medical services to Hilton (HLT.N), a sign-in-like service in the United States, acquiring a prominent customer for its nascent healthcare business.
The company declined to disclose the financial terms of the agreement with the hotel chain.
In the past, Amazon partnered with other companies to develop a health-service offer called, Amazon Care. This summer the company began marketing Care nationwide to other companies.
This is a deal with Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc, one of the largest companies in the world in the last 50 years. It relates to the company's experience in healthcare and it will be the first customer of the company to discuss the health and health issue in a tried and true way.
Like the kind of technology that Amazon built for its e-commerce needs, and then sold the infrastructure to a cloud-computing business, Amazon wants to profit from the healthcare service to protect its workers' health.
The enormous talent and complexity of Hilton's corporate and hotel chains employees is a milestone.
She said that it's not an easy population to serve, she said in an interview ahead of the Reuters Total Health conference Monday.
Hilton employs about 1431,000 people globally from Dec. 31, 2020. The entire company's staff will benefit from the benefit of Amazon Care next year.
I have virtual meetings with clinicians from Care Medical, which is a company focusing on serving customers of the Amazon Care Service. Amazon also offers house calls in Seattle and Washington. In addition to more urban areas like Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, Boston, and other cities, the expanded plans expand to Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, and Boston.
Helton said the employers' pandemic safety concerns and recruiting need during the labor shortage have contributed to demand.
"Attracting and retaining talent is very critical for businesses right now," she said.
Hilton uses the phone to talk with colleagues via Amazon Care, a cost of living and with a portion of the visit expenses, she said.
Among the rivals included Teladoc health Inc. (TDOC). According to Helton, Amazon is aiming to stand apart through hybrid virtual and in-person care, plus a user experience and clearer costs.
"An area where we are very focused is bringing the patient back that transparency," she said.
