Even for Amazon, Differentiation Is Key to Telehealth Market

The new landscape for telehealth is revealing itself as the COVID-19 pandemic gradually winds down. Existing players are striving to differentiate themselves in an increasingly crowded market, and Amazon.com, Inc. is rolling out a big bet on telehealth and in-home care.

In the latest of a flurry of telehealth transactions, Doctor on Demand Inc. and Grand Rounds Inc. agreed to merge in an all-stock deal announced March 16, which is projected to close in the first half of this year. Meanwhile, on March 17, Amazon unveiled plans to scale its Amazon Health subsidiary nationally after a successful pilot for workers in its Seattle headquarters.
