    As a former Best Buy employee, the primary color is blue. We refer to the sales people as blue shirts, the accent color is yellow.

    Companies like Amazon shouldn't be allowed to continually devour everything smaller than them and burrow their way in to every aspect of a country like a parasite. They should have to create their own infrastructure given how big and well funded they are, they shouldn't be allowed to keep acquiring smaller businesses and monopolising

      Health services are new for Amazon. I wouldn't call it a monopoly. If anything they bought a company with a larger footprint in an industry than them.
      Is it a perfect situation? Give me an example of what is. But defending how healthcare and pharma is already run in this country isn't it. Maybe this will have some positive impact on the expense to consumers on healthcare.
      As for providing their own infrastructure, you act like they didn't start in a garage and build to where they currently are. Hell, the NFL leases Amazon Web Services. That's definitely their own product/infrastructure they designed.

    To address one of the concerns, Amazon can’t use your medical data on their whim as medical data are protected under the HIPAA(Analogous to PHIPA in several Canadian provinces and PIPEDA on the federal level). You can opt in to provide your medical data(and the companies might try to lure you in with benefits) but unless you explicitly consent they can’t do anything even if Amazon owns your primary medical service provider.

    • MobileChaos

      Agreed, I work as DBA for healthcare and there is both HIPAA and HITECH rules and regulations. In a nutshell medically identifiable information is protected. Amazon could remove all medically identifiable information and Datamine common health issues or health trends across all users, but they are not allowed to tie your medical information back to your Amazon account.

    I think my one disagreement with Linus and Luke is on price. Amazon is more likely to start a “race to the bottom” on healthcare. It will become more accessible and cheaper, but at really low quality. It just accelerates the concept of pay-for-play in the quality of your healthcare (even among those with health insurance).

      @Traplover that's the thing: they might not do so. Because it's not necessarily actually profitable, but it's also illegal. Steam, for example, has been more or less a monopoly for years, and it's the best platform from the standpoint of a consumer. And there are other examples of consumer-friendly monopolies, although most of them are government-owned. But still, the view that monopolies = bad might be outdated. Unregulated monopolies are bad, that's for sure.
