Ama­zon snaps up on­line phar­ma­cy start­up Pill­Pack in lat­est move to dis­rupt health­care

Just one week af­ter pick­ing a CEO to lead its bold joint health­care ven­ture, Ama­zon has an­nounced it’s ac­quir­ing an on­line phar­ma­cy busi­ness called Pill­Pack.

The small New Hamp­shire-based start­up ships pre-pack­aged meds based on pre­scribed pa­tient dosages, pitched as a con­ve­nience to those who take mul­ti­ple drugs per day. The start­up has raised north of $120 mil­lion from back­ers in­clud­ing Tech­Stars and Men­lo Ven­tures, and was val­ued at $361 mil­lion back in 2016.
