How Amazon Care is Crucial during COVID-19
Amazon Care was originally built to tailor to the needs of its Seattle-based employees. The latter found their pay to be at risk, due to COVID-19 complications. Therefore, the e-commerce company decided to create an app that employees can use if they had health concerns or worries during the pandemic.
Amazon Care, which can be accessed virtually, is convenient for employees and for anyone who wishes to download the application.
In light of the recent pandemic, Amazon Care is more useful and safe than a physical trip to the clinic. Patients can contact health e-commerce remotely: from home, from work, and pretty much from anywhere in the world.
Covid-19 has revolutionized the way the world conventionally conducts business and having access to healthcare online may be one of them.
Jeff Bezos’ wealth contrasts with that of most businesses. The Seattle-based e-commerce offers a variety of services. What is interesting is that it even provides Amazon Care, which is basically telemedicine. In light of COVID-19, remote healthcare is very useful. Amazon Care also enables patients to register for prescription drug deliveries.
Blockchain Technology and COVID-19 Pandemic
With the coronavirus hitting countries from everywhere in the world, blockchain technology is also a useful method in ensuring that anyone who wishes to have a health consultation may do so virtually. This is a safer alternative, as the spread of COVID-19 is worse in certain parts of the world.
Blockchain technology remains a game-changer and ironically, the pandemic may be what the technology industry needs to popularize the adoption of blockchain globally.
