Amazon intends to shut down Amazon Care, the virtual health service it first launched in 2019, by the end of this year

The company declared the decision to Amazon Care workers on Wednesday, The Washington Post detailed.

Amazon Care began as a help for Amazon workers situated in Seattle

It paired virtual health care services with the choice for an in home visit from a nurse

Amazon is likewise supposedly keen on purchasing Signify Health, an organization that makes technology for at-home medical care.

Like most innovation organizations, Amazon has aspirations to venture into the rewarding healthcare market

The move to close down an in-house health service comes closely following Amazon's arranged acquisition of the membership-based primary care company, One Medical

Amazon purchased prescription delivery company PillPack in 2018 and has its own pharmacy

This isn't the first time that Amazon suddenly shut down a health venture
