Should Amazon's drugstore know your medical condition?

Published November 19, 2020


The Los Angeles Times covered Amazon’s announcement of its new online pharmacy and quoted Peter Winkelstein, executive director of the UB Institute for Healthcare Informatics, who said: “At this point, we have no idea what’s going to happen when you tell Amazon that you need a certain medication. The only thing that seems fair to say is that they’re going to monetize this information any way they can.”
