Care.

What happens when one of the world’s biggest companies takes a shot at care? What are their strengths, and what plays into their advantage? Can they apply the same principles they applied for other businesses, and most importantly, can they tailor the fabric of care itself? Here are some of my thoughts on how Amazon has the power to create a real impact and become the most admired healthcare brand in the world. What it can do and what it needs to do to address a $3.6 trillion question?
