Video visits and virtual chats
Amazon care providers’ medical facilities for treating workers of injury, illness. Similarly, they do Covid 19 testing, flu shots along with various other services. Based on the prescription of the doctors, the medications are sent to the patient’s address.
Well, the services happen through virtual chats or video visits. However, if there is a necessity there is also an in-person visit by providers to workers’ homes as well.
The program is launched with a vision and long term approach, as it also checks the needs of the dependants of the workers.
