A Seattle-based startup, 98point6, is looking to become the Amazon of primary care, according to a profile by CNBC. The company has already raised $86 million and runs a subscription-based model that aims to connect consumers with primary care doctors.
The company even has a former Amazon Prime executive, Rob Schwietzer, as its product leader.
For $20 for an introductory year, consumers can message with doctors with no additional fees for a visit. The company is betting on consumers’ growing attachment to technology, as well as needed disruption in the healthcare space.
