Pillpack rebrands to include 'Amazon Pharmacy'

PillPack, the internet pharmacy Amazon acquired in 2018, has rebranded to include "Amazon Pharmacy" in its logo and other paperwork, according to CNBC.

PillPack specializes in filling multiple prescriptions in clearly labeled packages for patients who tend to be older so that they remember to take them at the right times.
