The latest threat to community pharmacies came in mid-November when internet giant Amazon.com, Inc. announced two new initiatives designed to extend the “Amazon experience” to patients in need of prescription medications. The first initiative, Amazon Pharmacy is a new store on Amazon that allows customers to complete an entire pharmacy transaction on their desktop or mobile device. The second initiative allows Amazon Prime members to access savings on medications purchased without insurance – a benefit via Amazon Pharmacy and at more than 50,000 participating pharmacies across the country.
