Amazon, Maven ink deal

Amazon partnered with Maven Clinic to provide women's healthcare services for the company's employees in 50 countries outside of the U.S. and Canada.


Maven Clinic is a virtual clinic for women's and family health that connects patients with reproductive endocrinologists, obstetricians, gynecologists, nutritionists, mental health providers, adoption coaches and more. Through the partnership, announced Aug. 8, Amazon full time, part time and hourly employees will have free access to Maven.

Maven offers video visits and chat messaging with doctors, nurses, coaches and other experts in 35 languages.

"There are too many barriers to care in healthcare systems that were not built around the needs of women and families, and Amazon is cutting through that complexity by making it exceptionally easy for their employees to access high-quality personalized care in their own language at any hour of the day or night," said Kate Ryder, founder and CEO of Maven Clinic, in a news release.

The deal adds free Maven services to hundreds of thousands of employees, according to CNBC. Maven is valued at more than $1 billion and already has partnerships with Microsoft, AT&T and L'Oreal.

Amazon often offers services to employees as a testing ground for launching the services more broadly to its healthcare customers. Amazon's current healthcare platform, Amazon Clinic, provides virtual and in-person care to patients across the U.S. at a fixed price and doesn't accept insurance. The company also owns One Medical, a hybrid primary care platform, which it acquired last year for $3.9 billion.
